Dental Nachos Supreme Presents: The Inseparable Truth between Bruxism, TMD and Sleep Apnea


Since 2017 when the American Dental Association made its first official statement on the role that dentists play in the screening and treatment of sleep related breathing disorders, many more dentists have become interested in educating themselves on this topic. There is also a compounding amount of research which explains the high comorbidity between sleep related breathing disorders like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and craniofacial pain. With the prevalence of OSA and chronic pain increasing, it is now clear that a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach is best for ideal treatment outcomes. During this presentation, the attendees will learn how to screen, identify, and treat patients who present to their offices with signs and symptoms that are consistent with a sleep related breathing disorder as well as chronic facial pain.

Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Ryan Robinson

When Dr. Robinson graduated from dental school, he could not wait to get back to the community in which he grew up. He was looking forward to helping people achieve their perfect smile. Little did he know that a few years later, his background in dentistry would give him the opportunity to look beyond the teeth to something that could change his patient’s overall health…..the AIRWAY!
Dr. Robinson is Delaware’s first and only doctor triple board certified in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. After many years of treating the airway in his general dental practice, Dr Robinson decided to open a specialty practice to address the needs of the community. This new practice called The Pain and Sleep Therapy Center of Delaware Valley focuses on finding the origin of the problem as opposed to treating with medications and “band-aid” fixes that have become so routine in today’s medical system.
Dr. Robinson has taken over 1000 hours of continuing education courses in Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Breathing Disorders and has been personally mentored by the world’s leading airway clinicians. Dr. Robinson works with patients of all ages. He states, “It is extremely rewarding to help an adult enhance their quality of life by finding and treating the source of their issues. What’s even more powerful is treating children and having the opportunity to CURE their problems.” He goes on to say “Children are the most fun because with just a little intervention and therapy we can help the child grow and develop properly, saving them a lifetime of issues that otherwise would not have been identified. We focus on identifying these issues at a young age so we don’t ever have to treat them as an adult.”
Outside of the office, Dr. Robinson loves spending time with his wife Renee, his son Bryce, his daughter Reese and their dog Marley. He also enjoys traveling, playing golf and giving back to the community through volunteering his time and service, especially with Alfred I. DuPont/Nemours Hospital for children in their blood cancer research department.
