Dr. Hilsen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hilsen "Dr. Hilsen is a pioneer in the field of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. He is a charter member and past President of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and is on the Board of Directors of the New Jersey Sleep Society. He is boarded by the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine in the area of sleep dentistry. Dr. Hilsen is a member of the credentialed staff at Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck for over 25 years. He is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. Dr. Hilsen also lectures nationally on Dental Sleep Medicine and Oral Appliance Therapy. He has also been interviewed on television, radio, and newspapers as an authority on Dental Sleep Medicine. Complementing his treatments, Dr. Hilsen has also developed and patented his own oral appliance for helping patients with sleep apnea. The device, similar to a retainer, is custom-fit to the patient and placed inside the mouth. It positions the jaw forward increasing the space that is taken up by the tongue, and allows for more air to be taken in with each breath, decreasing and even eliminating snoring. Dr. Hilsen has been practicing Dentistry since the year 1973"
