11-8-11 LIBERTY

As part of the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, five live web-cams were installed in Ms. Liberty’s torch, in her crown, and at the harbor. There’s also a Panorama of the NJ and NY skylines, Ellis Island, and the New York-New Jersey Harbor.

There’s live audio too, so you can hear the whoosh of aircraft overhead and the honk of boat horns as YOU watch the ships steam across the bay. Click on this link to look and listen: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/statueofliberty/

Click on any of the five pictures and enjoy a live streaming video… day or night, 24/7, starting now.

I wish I could have been there:  When Lady Liberty was still in her youth, my parents saw her on their freedom voyage from Kiev, in Ukrania (then part of the Russian Empire) to Ellis Island. I can only imagine their teenage excitement and fulfillment of hope when they saw Lady Liberty from their ship. They were so proud and determined to become Americans- in every way. They quickly learned to speak English and adapted to every American way of life. I am very proud of them.

The one time I saw The Statue of Liberty was from a US Army troop ship returning from Europe to the Port of New York on a foggy morning. The scene is emblazoned in my memory.

On Monday May 29th, 2017 let’s remember the Veterans of our struggles for Liberty who never returned to see this beautiful tribute.

Memorial Day occurs every year on the final Monday of May. It is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

The preferred name for the holiday gradually changed from “Decoration Day” to “Memorial Day”, which was first used in 1882. It did not become more common until after World War II, On June 28, 1968, the Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which moved four holidays, including Memorial Day, from their traditional dates to a specified Monday in order to create a convenient three-day weekend.The change moved Memorial Day from its traditional May 30 date to the last Monday in May. Memorial Day endures as a holiday which most businesses observe because it marks the unofficial beginning of summer.

On Memorial Day the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.

“If you told an athlete you had a treatment that would reduce the chemicals associated with stress, that would naturally increase human growth hormone, that enhances recovery rate, that improves performance, they would all do it. Sleep does all of those things.”  ~ Casey Smith, Head Athletic Trainer, Dallas Mavericks

The Boston Red Sox built a “Sleep Room” in Fenway Park because they knew the Value of Sleep.

The Red Sox are flush with advantages on the field and deep inside Fenway Park. According to the Boston Globe,, the team has what they’ve dubbed a “sleep room,” a 145-square-foot space with two sets of bunk beds where players and coaches can get in a power nap ahead of home games. Many sports teams have learned that sleep improves performance.

THE OPPORTUNITY
It was only three years ago that I read that less than 1% of American licensed dentists were practicing sleep medicine. In those few years that number has risen to 4%. If we have approximately 205,000 practicing dentists in the USA, then there are only 8200 Dentists serving the needs of The multitude of people affected with sleep disorders.
According to a Harvard health report there are 18.9 million undiagnosed cases of obstructive sleep apnea and a minimum of 40% – 1.3 million-of CPAP users are non-compliant. So that alone conservatively projects 20.2 million victims of obstructive sleep apnea who may be helped by a dentist trained in oral appliance therapy (OAT).
Is there any better opportunity in dentistry?                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Dental sleep medicine: the hottest button in dentistry today.
Awareness of sleep apnea in America is at an all-time peak. The fires of awareness are being stoked by the public media and by social media. Patients are understanding and becoming increasingly more concerned about the blockage of oxygen to the brain into other organs. Strokes. Heart attacks. Diabetes. Dementia. People are recognizing that they have the symptoms and are asking their Dentists about it. Some doctors have the solutions. Every Dentist would like to be “The Sleep Dentist.”
Where to begin?
Seminar training courses are now available through Sleep Group Solutions every week, in different cities, throughout the United States. They are training dentists to discover the victims of sleep apnea and to treat them with the most appropriate modalities. Oral appliance therapy (OAT) is the most convenient and preferred therapy for the mild and moderate cases and for those patients who cannot tolerate the CPAP device. Fortunately, this is where the dentist in shining armor rides in on a white horse to the rescue. Dentists, we like to say, are on the front line of the battle against sleep apnea. Dentists are in the optimum position to see the signs and symptoms and can offer the most preferred solutions to the problem. A professional coach guiding the development of the process will make the
process advance quicker, smoothly and more effectively.
Keys to success
Success in treatment acceptance and end point attainment varies with, and depends upon, each individual dentist’s knowledge and determination and his or her patient’s cooperation. The training program will present the tools, screening protocols, diagnostic equipment, techniques and some verbal skills for success. As in other healthcare therapies, a partnership between the professional provider and the patient is the key to success. The patient’s cooperation is essential. Compliance will keep them under control. So that explains the patient’s role in the “Partnership for Success”.
The Dentist’s Responsibilities
Beginning with the seminar training program, the dentist must be 100% committed to success. (Anything we endeavor will be more likely to be achieved when we are positive that we will succeed.) The seminar training is only the beginning of the learning process. We must retain what we have learned, continue to study, to research all new ideas and to practice our treatment plan presentations with our teams. 

You are in the right place at the right time. As a Care Giver, think of how you can serve a critical need of your patients. They are looking for your help.
You may contact me with questions or for assistance in becoming “The Dental Sleep Professional”.
Yours for better health,
Charles Kravitz DDS
