The symptoms are startlingly similar. Children suffering from sleep deprivation caused by Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) can be hyperactive and moody. If OSA is misdiagnosed as ADHD, it can make matters worse.

We treat many cases of sleep apnea, and this infographic will show you how many U.S. children have OSA, its causes, its symptoms, how it links to ADHD, how doctors can help, and how one parent found true relief for their child’s sleep apnea.

Timbercrest Dental Center has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus. As leaders in the healthcare profession, we are responsible for ensuring the safety of our patients, our dental teams, and our community. Consistent with the recommendations from the Wisconsin Board of Dentistry, Wisconsin Dental Association, and the Surgeon General, we will postpone any non-emergent/elective care for two weeks starting 3/20/2020. We took this very difficult decision seriously and propose the following plan of action subesetent to the two-week hiatus. We will still have availability to treat emergent dental needs.
