2 Pioneering Specialists to Discuss Breathing and Sleep Disorders at Largest U.S. Dental Conference

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - Dr. Howard Hindin of The Hindin Center for Whole Health Dentistry ( and Dr. Michael Gelb of The Gelb Center (, co-founders of the Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry (APMD), will be featured speakers at the nation's largest dental health-care event on Dec. 3.

During the Greater New York Dental Meeting, Hindin will moderate the session on Airway, Breathing and Sleep: A Collaborative Approach -- Airway Centric, and Gelb will be one of the session's seven panelists, which also include Dr. Jeff Hindin of The Hindin Center.

The cutting-edge dentists are speaking under the auspices of APMD, an organization for health-care practitioners and consumers working together for the wellness of individuals, families and society. The GNYDM is the largest dental congress in the world.

"We're working to spread the message to both doctors and the public of the need for an integrative treatment approach for airway, breathing and sleep issues," says Hindin.

Adds Gelb: "If you see a specialist, he or she may identify and correct one of the problems, but they won't necessarily recognize others," Gelb says. "It's important to bring together a variety of specialists for a complete diagnosis."

Airway, breathing and sleep problems can have serious consequences, including sleep disorders, fatigue, chronic pain, obesity, TMJ, diabetes, recurring headaches and ADHD, the doctors say.

The 2013 GNYDM is Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
