Dr. Kyle Smith has spent the last five years advancing his specialty training in Dental Sleep Medicine due to a drive to give CPAP intolerant patients a way to successfully treat their obstructive sleep apnea. Beginning in 2015, he began actively seeking out continuing education opportunities in dental sleep medicine, and to date, has accumulated over 100 hours of continuing education in this field. In 2019, he completed an intensive 6-month Sleep Medicine Continuum at Texas A&M College of Dentistry where he obtained a comprehensive working knowledge of sleep related breathing disorders and patient management. In 2020, he completed the Mastery I Course of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and is recognized as a “Qualified Dentist” with the AADSM.
