IN-HOME SLEEP TESTING
We have designed our diagnostic sleep testing services with dentists in mind. Better Sunrise can help
you build your dental sleep practice by offering convenient, in-home sleep testing. Your patients no
longer have to choose between clinical quality and comfort. Until now, patients had to sleep overnight
in a laboratory in order to have a type I, fully monitored diagnostic sleep study. With Better Sunrise,
your patients can now choose to have a type I, monitored Polysomnography, in the comfort of their
home sleeping environment.

RESULTS TO YOU IN 72 HOURS
All sleep study results are interpreted by a physician board certified in sleep medicine. As a dentist, you order sleep studies for your patients. Our sleep specialist reads the studies; issues a diagnosis of sleep apnea, if appropriate; and faxes results to your office within 72 hours of completing the test. Diagnostic studies that are positive for mild to moderate sleep apnea, routinely include a recommendation for dental oral appliance as a treatment option. See sample sleep study reports here.
PATIENTS ARE DIRECTED TO RETURN TO YOUR OFFICE
Better Sunrise is in the business of supporting your dental sleep practice. All patients are referred directly back to your office for follow up.
HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR THE ORAL APPLIANCE
A Better Sunrise type I, fully monitored Polysomnography is considered the gold standard diagnostic test for sleep disordered breathing. A diagnosis of sleep apnea as shown on a Better Sunrise sleep study report will generally be considered to meet the requirements of medical necessity for coverage of treatment. A Positive Airway Pressure device (PAP therapy) is indicated for mild, moderate and severe sleep apnea. Dental oral appliances are indicated for mild to moderate sleep apnea, and may be indicated for severe sleep apnea if PAP therapy is not tolerated. Coverage decisions are generally made by insurance carriers at the time of claims processing. Most health insurance plans accept claims submitted on the HCFA-1500 claim form, with all required fields completed. Better Sunrise makes no guarantee of claims payment.
