When someone has obstructive sleep apnea, breathing stops frequently throughout the night. Breathing is essential to life; we need to breathe to release carbon dioxide and take in oxygen. The interruptions in breathing associated with sleep apnea can have a dramatic impact on your daily life and can even shorten your lifespan. We have the technology and training necessary to evaluate your case and determine which treatment can provide the solution you need.
TMJ stands for Temporo-Mandibular Joint, the modified-hinge type of synovial joint that connects the jawbone to the skull on each side. It is also an older, but still common term for what is currently known to dentists as TMD, or Temporomandibular Disorder. TMD refers to a variety of problems that affect the TMJ and the muscles and soft tissues that surround it. Because TMD may include several different issues, ranging from mild to very serious, if you have or think you may have TMD, please set up a consult with our office today. We're here to help.
Hello, I am Dr. Werleman. I was born in Holland and raised on the Dutch island of Aruba, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at Loyola University in New Orleans in 1988. I then obtained my doctorate’s degree in 1992 from the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious dental institution. After receiving my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, I completed a General Practice Residency at York Hospital in 1993, and began private practice in 1995 after 2 years of community and public health service at Southeast Lancaster Health Services.
I have also completed a mini-residency training in Dental Sleep Medicine at Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA from October 2014 – April 2015. The curriculum covered in-depth and detailed training in all aspect of sleep medicine and cranio facial pain and TMJ as it pertains to dental sleep medicine and the role dentists can play in helping treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The training involved lectures from doctors and clinicians in the Boston area including Harvard School of Medicine.
Absolutely amazing team they have there. Everyone was super nice and helpful. Dentist spent an hour with me going over things and answering my questions. Highly recommend.
