Dr. Schell is honored to have been chosen as the co-chair of the experts panel consensus conference to evaluate side effects of Oral appliance therapy. Having never been formally discussed or looked at makes this the most attractive topic ever presented at an annual meeting to date.

Dr. Schell, DMD is on the AADSM Board of Directors and an adjunctive faculty member at the Medical School at Dartmouth. He has been involved in a National Institute of Health study investigating Oral Appliance compliance and effects. He was also  co-chair of the experts panel consensus conference investigating the side effects of oral appliance therapy held in Chicago this last November.

The conference will be held Friday, June 2 – Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts.

  • Our office, through a collaborative project with Creare, Inc. and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, has recently received research funding from the National Institutes of Health.  This exciting and innovative research will lead to the development of state of the art technology to measure compliance and effect of oral appliances in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, particularly for those in the transportation industry.
