Meet Dr. Stephen Poss
Dr. Poss is a Tennessee native and graduated from the University of Tennessee Dental School. He continued his post graduate training at Baylor University and then the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Most recently he has continued his education in sleep breathing disorders for the treatment of sleep apnea for the CPAP intolerant and those with mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Dr. Poss began investigating the treatment of sleep apnea in 1989 when he discovered that many people who are afflicted with sleep disorders are unlikely to wear large cumbersome devices like the CPAP.
Dr. Poss is the predominate specialist in the Nashville area. The practice is located in Brentwood, but has treated patients across the country.
He has treated thousands of cases of sleep apnea with custom oral appliances and has extensive experience in both cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, restorative dentistry as well as treatment of sleep disorders.
