I was shocked and saddened to find out that my friend and colleague, Dr. Brian Palmer, recently passed away. Dr. Palmer was responsible for opening my eyes to the importance of breastfeeding and good dental hygiene when it comes to your risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea. His decades of research and teaching has educated thousands of health care professionals. I had him as a guest on my Expert Interview program twice, the last time being December, 2011. Prophetically, I do remember him telling me that his 2 hour presentation was his gift to society. You can listen to his talk on the Evolution of Malocclusion and Sleep Apnea here. His website is a valuable resource for the lay public and professionals alike.
Rest in peace, Brian.
