Paid Advertorial

WESTFIELD — “Never before has our health had such center stage in our lives. Our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing are in turmoil in this pandemic. Taking care of ourselves is critically essential for our survival. It is time to have the conversation about how sleep is the driver of our overall health and wellbeing. Without restful sleep we do not have the opportunity to thrive, and live our best life,” -Dr. Sunita Merriman.

Dr. Merriman deeply understands the importance of balancing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and has made it her mission to provide care to the patients of NJDSMC so that they may achieve such balance.

Years ago, she learned firsthand how the lack of restful sleep devastates the body and mind. That motivated her to pursue an advanced education in Sleep Medicine. So, after practicing dentistry for 25 years, she went through the long, arduous and rigorous process of earning Diplomate status with two independent National Sleep Boards, and is proud to be one of less than only 300 dentists in the United States to have achieved this distinction.

At NJDSMC, we recognize that credentials and competence must be complemented with empathy and compassion to provide high quality care. We see how lack of sleep compromises not only the health, energy, and quality of life of our patients, but that of our patients’ partners and families as well. We strive to bring relief to them in a way that goes well beyond giving them an oral appliance. The team at NJDSMC is carefully chosen, and participates in continuing education and training to fully embrace the ever-evolving complexities of the impact of sleep apnea on our patients. We understand how medical co-morbidities and mental health impacts the severity of sleep disorders. That is why we partner and collaborate with our patients’ other health care providers. With committed, integrative care, we can achieve the best results for our patients.

If you are looking to make an investment in a wellness alliance to successfully achieve optimal health, we invite you to come experience NJDSMC.

Your safety during this pandemic is our top priority. Keeping that in mind, we have in place a comprehensive, state of the art Safety Program that you can learn more about by viewing our COVID-19 Safety Video on our channel Sunita Merriman, DDS on You Tube.

Sleep is essential for living your best life.

We believe you are worth it, deserve it, and are entitled to it!
