Dr. Burggraaff is double board certified in the two most relevant specialties for treating snoring and sleep apnea: Otolaryngology (AKA, Ear, Nose and Throat doctor) and Sleep Medicine.

This allows Dr. Burggraaff the unique advantage of becoming intimately familiar with the relationship between how we breathe (and whether it’s through our noses or mouths) and how it relates into sleep.
