Dr. Schell & Dr. Noble
Our office, through a collaborative project with Creare, Inc. and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, has recently received research funding from the National Institutes of Health. This exciting and innovative research will lead to the development of state of the art technology to measure compliance and effect of oral appliances in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, particularly for those in the transportation industry.
Dr. Noble attended an advanced continuing education course sponsored by Invisalign focusing on treatment for complex orthodontic cases.
Several staff members and their families had a great time hosting the Listen Community Dinner on November 8th. The new facility is fantastic and we urge you to stop by and visit this community resource.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Schell has been selected as a member of the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Schell attended the American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics & International Society of Maxillofacial Rehabilitation annual meeting in New Mexico. This education focuses on prosthetic restoration for people with facial anomalies such as cleft lips or palates and disfigured or missing ears, noses, or eyes. This need is either congenital or due to accidents or necessary surgery. The prosthetics are usually made of very life-like silicone, custom made and colored, and attached with implants or magnets.
After a lengthy process requiring both examination and demonstrated clinical requirements, Dr. Schell has passed his board review and is now a Diplomat of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. There are approximately 200 ABDSM Diplomats worldwide.
Dr. Noble has been approved by the State of NH to provide oral sedation dentistry. This allows anxious and fearful patients to obtain necessary dental care in a relaxed and safe environment. Sedation dentistry is also recommend for patients with a severe gagging reflex or those resistant to local anethetic. More treatment can be accomplished in one visit which makes this ideal for people in need of extensive treatment or under time constraints.
