Dr. Richard Klein of Michigan Head & Neck Institute, With Three Other Experts, Met With Members of the Dept. of Transportation in Washington, DC About Safety in Trucking
Date:7/18/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

On Thursday, July 11th, a two hour briefing and Q & A session took place between members of the Department of Transportation and four professionals who strive to make a difference in keeping drivers safe. In attendance in the office of Anthony Foxx (United States Secretary of Transportation), was Larry Minor (Associate Administrator for Policy), Marty Russo (lobbyist and former congressman of Illinois), Shannon Watson (Senior Policy Advisor, Office of Policy), Elaine Papp (Chief, Medical Programs Division), Angela Ward (Occupational Health Nurse, Medical Programs Division) and Lucas Robinson (Intern, Office of Policy).

That team met with four experts including Dr. Elliott Alpher and Dr. Richard Klein who are co-chair of the Sleep Committee of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP). Dr. Elliott Alpher teaches at George Washington and Georgetown Universities, and has lead the effort to inform government officials with facts regarding OSA and the relation to the transportation industry. Dr. Klein teaches at Michigan State Osteopathic Medical School, lectures at numerous educational seminars, and is one of the few dentists that exclusively treats TMJ problems and obstructive sleep apnea within Michigan and the tri-state area. Inventor Dr. Rick Bonnato (President of Braebon Corporation), Mr. Mitch Livingston (Vice President of Braebon Corporaton), and Mr. David Gergen (President of Gergen Orthodontic Laboratories) were the other experts present.

The main topic of discussion involved the various causes and treatments for truck drivers and other people who have transportation occupations that suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. A barrier to encouraging oral appliances for those drivers who would not wear a CPAP machine when sleeping, was the fact that compliance and usage is measurable with a CPAP machine and not measurable with an oral appliance until now.
