gREGORY A. OSBORNE, dds, FADI
Dr. Gregory A. Osborne has been treating OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) patients with oral appliances for most of his career as a general dentist. His passion for helping others was ignited when several of his extended family were diagnosed with OSA. He has seen how effective oral appliances can be and how compliance is high even with patients that are intolerant to CPAP therapy.
Dr. Osborne has experience with many styles and brands of oral appliances that have been used successfully for his patients. He increasingly dedicates his clinical time to practicing dental sleep medicine. He is recognized as a "Diplomate" by the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. The ABDSM Diplomate status is the gold standard in dental sleep medicine demonstrating that a dentist has the technical skill, in-depth knowledge and professional judgment to provide optimal oral appliance therapy care.
Our office welcomes patients that have complex medical histories and have exhausted other treatment options. Our clinical team includes trained medical nurses that understand respiratory and systemic implications of sleep breathing disorders. Dr. Osborne and our team also meet the challenges that dental sleep medicine professionals face when working with medical insurance by partnering with a team of insurance experts that help our patients.
Dr. Osborne graduated from UT Health Center Dental School in 1981. He has been appointed as Clinical Faculty Assistant Professor since 2005 at the Dental School.
