What Patients Can Expect During Their First Visit

Dr. Steve Lawson, of the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Winnipeg, says that first-time patients can expect to sit down and talk with Dr. Lawson about their concerns.  Dr. Lawson listens to the patient to make sense out of what he can do for them.

It is then a matter of stepping in and making sure they understand what's going on, what he can do and how he can help them.  Dr. Lawson says he will then do an examination and take images to find out what the problem is and get an accurate diagnosis.  Dr. Lawson uses a non-surgical, conservative approach, using an orthopedic appliance for sleep disorder breathing.  "Time spent with the patient is all about the patient," Dr. Lawson says.

Dr. Lawson is a leading sleep expert with Sleep Better TV and more information about his practice can be found at


Pediatric Sleep Disorders, Featuring Dr. Steve Lawson of the TMJ & Dental Sleep Centre Winnipeg Canada

Pediatric sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, are often mis-diagnosed and under-diagnosed because we assume only adults have obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, says Dr. Steve Lawson of the TMJ & Dental Sleep Centre of Winnipeg.  Dr. Lawson says that the numbers are "astounding" for children.

According to Dr. Lawson, at younger ages, there is an opportunity to diagnose and treat more definitively.  There are non-surgical options for children, such as the expansion of arches the open the airways and children as young as 4 or 5 can be treated.

Dr. Lawson says that research shows a significant correlation between obstructive sleep apnea and ADHD.  He says that he can turn kids from snorers and kids with very compromised situations into kids with the potential to breath.  The treatment can be "life changing," Dr. Lawson says.
