Welcome To Advanced Sleep and TMJ Solutions
Here at Advanced Sleep and TMJ Solutions, we want to get to know you, first and foremost. We are going to invest the time to find out about you, what you need, and how best to achieve it for you.
There’s no such thing as one size fits all. We want to take into account as much of our patients' unique circumstances and objectives as we can, to serve them as well as we can. We will work with you at your own speed and at your own comfort level to get you the best possible results.
Lots of our patients are referred sleep apnea and other conditions that they did not realize could be addressed with new methods of reformulating the upper airway. We are mindful that there are a variety of treatment options, some of which will better fit some patients’ needs than others. We often work in close concert with medical doctors to devise the best treatment method for each individual patient. Our treatments are also designed to address the underlying issues, rather than just palliate, whenever possible.
We also realize that for many people it’s stressful enough getting treatment without having to worry about how to finance a therapeutic program. Our staff are experts at negotiating with insurance companies to get you the best deal on the best options for you.
We will be with you every step of the way. Give us a call, and we’ll start finding out about you by listening. Then we’ll go from there.

Angela – Dental Assistant
Angela previously worked in healthcare as a CNA, Dental Assistant, and Medical Assistant. She graduated from Edgewood College in 2012 with a BSB. She knew she always wanted to work in healthcare but was unsure of what direction she wanted to take between the dentistry and medical fields. Angela certainly feels like I found the perfect combination of both!
Angela believes in compassionate healthcare and helping others by making them feel their best; one of her favorite parts of her job is seeing how patients feel after treatment! Angela’s position is unique because she gets to see how patients initially feel before treatment. A lot of times patients are exhausted, have difficulties concentrating or losing weight, and are frustrated with the impacts of snoring for themselves and their bed partner. She enjoys seeing how a patient’s quality of life has improved after having treatment. She recalls one patient saying, “I feel like I can be a dad again!”
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family. Angela lives in Sussex with her husband and two sons, who are 7 and 4. Her hobbies include cooking, baking, reading, watching movies, playing soccer, and doing boot camp a few times per week!
