July 19, 2017 – Author and Award winning Miami dentist, Dr. Rene Piedra-Rivero has been designated a “Qualified Dentist” by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, making him the first dentist with this distinction in Miami, Florida. Dr. Piedra has a long history in Miami as one of the premier cosmetic and sedation dentists, and this new distinction makes him a leader in Oral Appliance Therapy for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Dr. Piedra-Rivero has had a distinguished career, as a known pioneer of cutting-edge dental practices in Miami-Dade County. Being ahead of the curve is part of Dr. Piedra-Rivero’s practice philosophy, “No patient and no case is too difficult, to not deserve quality dental care,” and one which helped shape the dental care landscape in South Florida making dentistry available for a once neglected South Florida public such as high-fear persons and special needs persons. He was the first Master Affiliate of FastBraces® and the first to introduce LANAP (the first FDA approved Laser alternative to gum surgery) in Miami-Dade County.
Dr. Piedra-Rivero stated: “It has always been my priority to make sure my patients receive the best care possible despite the challenges they may face, whether it’s fear, embarrassment, special needs and in this case CPAP intolerance. I am excited to work with those who suffer from Sleep Apnea, a chronic life threatening condition, to restore and improve their quality of life. These are patients whose bed partners sleep in separate rooms due to their severe snoring, they may have excessive daytime sleepiness and drowsiness even while driving, or maybe high blood pressure or diabetes, to name a few. This treatment doesn’t only save marriages and quality of life, in essence it can save lives.”
Dr. Rene Piedra-Rivero’s “Feel Good Dentistry Practice” is located at 7887 N. Kendall Dr., Ste. 220, Miami, FL 33156 where he and his associates treat both adults and children. For general Information, please visit: www.floridasleepdentist.com or you may call: (305) 667-6747.
