Washington, D. C. — Dr. Elliott Alpher, one of the District’s most experienced specialists for sleep and jaw disorders, spoke before World Bank health professionals as part of their Continuing Medical Education program. The presentation was viewed via teleconference connection to physicians and nurses globally deployed in Senegal, Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa and Singapore.

The presentation, “Sleep Disordered Breathing and Dental Appliances,” explores the relationship between posture, neck and spine injuries, growth issues, as well as sleep and breathing disorders sighting several case studies of patients with critical conditions plus how they were treated and cured.

“Our audience was truly captivated,” comments Alpher. “Very few have connected the dots between the spine and the jaw and their affect on sleep disorders and craniofacial pain. I have been treating patients in this manner for years and they’re getting better faster!”

Dr. Alpher is on staff at George Washington University Hospital and Georgetown University Hospital and has been known as a leader in the treatment of sleep disorders and jaw pain for 25 years. He has pioneered a conservative, non-invasive approach utilizing computerized and verifiable diagnostic methods to treat TMJ, snoring and sleep apnea. This method of treatment has proven to be greatly successful and is highly regarded as the first method of choice by physicians and patients.
