In order to fulfill the essential number of regenerating sleep cycles the average adult needs 7-8 hours. A five stage sleep cycle repeats consistently throughout the night. One complete sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes. So during an average night’s sleep (8 hours), an adult will experience about four or five cycles of sleep.
A Little History of Daylight Saving Time
The concept of setting the clocks ahead in the spring in order to make better use of natural daylight was first introduced in the US by inventor Benjamin Franklin in 1784.

US President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted year-round DST in the United States, called “War Time” during World War II from February 9, 1942 to September 30, 1945. The change was implemented 40 days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and during this time, the U.S. time zones were called “Eastern War Time”, “Central War Time”, and “Pacific War Time”. After the surrender of Japan in mid-August 1945, the time zones were relabeled “Peace Time”.
Congress decided to end the confusion and establish the Uniform Time Act of 1966 that stated DST would begin on the last Sunday of April and end on the first Sunday of November. However, states still had the ability to be exempt from DST by passing a local ordinance.
This fall, dentists will not need to “fall backward” in their practice. They have the opportunity to “spring forward” with Dental Sleep Medicine and help the millions of their Sleep Apnea victims.

Are you declaring your independence from those things that interfere with your quality of living? You can use Independence Day as a incentive to start a personal revolution.
Here’s a good place to start:
Are you and your spouse disgusted with the snoring that forced you into separate bedrooms?  A great percentage of couples have separated and many have divorced because they didn’t seek a simple solution- an intra-oral device to wear during sleep, paid by insurance and made by a qualified Sleep Medicine dentist that will prevent snoring and treat sleep apnea.
Find a sleep qualified dentist and get freed from your snoring. Dentists are the first line of defense to help you in this battle. 

 John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail:

“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Coincidentally, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, but another Founding Father who became a President, James Monroe, died on July 4, 1831, thus becoming the third President in a row who died on the holiday. 

 

Dr. Sidney Shaw was an old-fashioned type dentist. He had a conservative treatment approach to the practice of dentistry, he exuded an obvious passion for helping his patients, and everyone loved him. He had an admired and successful general dental practice.  At the ripe young age of 66 he was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and his doctor told him he had to slow down. That’s when he made the painful decision to hang up his loupes, put his practice up for sale and reap the rewards from the 38 years of hard work invested into building his practice. He felt he could retire comfortably on his proceeds from the sale.

He contacted a dental transition realtor who conducted a very comprehensive practice valuation. To Sidney’s dismay the valuation reported a market value of 310,000. This was more than disappointing to Sidney; it was devastating. It was not enough to support him and his wife and their medical bills.


“Disappointment is a temporary obstacle on the road to success.”

Sidney’s astute transition Broker came up with an idea. If he could implement a dental sleep medicine program he could add another two to three hundred thousand dollars in value to his sale price.
With his health scare Sidney made some major business decisions. He hired an associate, he cut back to three half days a week, he took a training course, got some private coaching and concentrated on screening and treating his patients for sleep apnea.
Within two months of making his decision he was treating two patients, on average, each day for sleep apnea. His average income for each case was $3500. This amounted $21,000 a week for three easy, relaxed, rewarding half days a week. This projected to revenues of an incr
 edible $1,050,000. for a 50 week year. This may sound like “pie in the sky” but when you check around you will find examples like this being quietly conducted all throughout the nation.
The happy ending:
Sidney sold his practice for 2.5 times more than that original market value and he stayed on 3 half days a week as a ” sleep specialist” for the new owner. How is that for a ROI of two months’ training?
