Oliver, Dr Rebecca
Sleep Apnoea Dentist
Consulting Times: Wednesday mornings weekly
Dr Rebecca Oliver BDSc (Hons) Melb
Graduating as a dentist with Honours from the University of Melbourne in 2000, Dr Rebecca Oliver worked as a general dentist for 8 years. In 2009 she sold her general practice to work exclusively in Dental Sleep Medicine, helping people affected by snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Rebecca has fitted over 1200 patients with custom made adjustable "Mandibular Advancement Splints" (the medical term for any style of snoring and sleep apnoea mouth guard). These patients have had long term follow up to ensure treatment success. She utilises eight styles of TGA approved oral devices to ensure a discrete, comfortable and effective treatment for every individual.
Few dentists in the country have had such long term experience with oral appliance therapy. Her passion is found in helping people rediscover their zest for life and improving relationships after years of poor sleep, loud snoring, and even separate sleeping arrangements.
Working closely with GPs, Sleep Physicians, and ENTs, Rebecca treats patients with a range of symptoms who cannot or will not tolerate a CPAP for treatment of their sleep apnoea.
Rebecca is certified by the Dental Practice Board of Victoria and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
