Known as an authority as a practitioner of Dental Sleep Medicine, DMD Dr. Todd Morgan received his initial training from the Washington University School of Dental Medicine where he graduated over 25 years ago. During his decades of practice in California, he has published many research articles and directed clinical research studies concerning Oral Appliance Therapy for obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and headaches. He and his organization have written books and many industry-approved articles, in addition to directing scientific trials financed by the NIH on using dental appliances to treat sleep apnea. As a pioneer of the industry, Dr. Morgan and his team have established the most appropriate ways of identifying patients who are good candidates for OAT. He’s currently working with primary care physicians and others in a collaborative effort that will lead to the most favorable outcomes for patients using oral appliances. The gold standard for a trial of OAT is The Apnea Guard, a device patented by Dr. Morgan that allows for therapy to begin right away and identifies the best jaw position for each individual patient. Dr. Morgan has a second oral appliance design patent as well, and he’s also served on the AADSM Board of Directors twice. In 2014 and 2015 he was the Vice Chair of the AADSM Advanced Dental Sleep Medicine Course, and in 2013 he directed the design of the current Board Examination Review Course that was put into use that year.
Dr. Morgan believes that patient care should revolve around information, a comfortable environment, and providing treatment that works! It brings him no greater pleasure than to treat patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and increase their quality of life. Dr. Morgan’s premiere Dental Sleep Medicine practice prides itself on service that goes beyond the basics. He is an invited speaker and lecturer around the world. He has recently published a book entitled Why The Long Face : A Story About Thumb-sucking to inspire and educate parents about the effects that thumb-sucking and other harmful habits have upon the balance in craniofacial growth and airway development. Dr. Morgan resides in the Carlsbad area with his wife Barbi and their 4 children.
