Family Speaker: Sleep Apnea and Orthodontics


Dr. Hockel will be discussing the importance of orthodontics to prevent or treat airway problems like sleep apnea. His specialty is creating ways to maximize the health and development of children with Down syndrome from an airway, orthodontic and facial development perspective. There will be an open Q&A following his presentation. This topic is great for parents of kids of all ages!
