Dr. Juliet Bulnes-Newton, a Tampa Bay dentist and sleep apnea expert, recently became an American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) Diplomate. ABDSM is the board for the leading national organization for dentists who treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with oral appliance therapy. Earning Diplomate status from the ABDSM is a unique honor that signifies a professional commitment to education, knowledge, and experience in dental sleep medicine.
Dr. Bulnes-Newton said, “My passion is dental sleep medicine, and I am proud to receive this highly esteemed designation. Sleeping with a CPAP machine, which includes a face mask, tubing, and a constantly running motor, can be difficult, and many Tampa Bay residents are unaware that an effective and comfortable treatment is available. I’m committed to using my knowledge of dental sleep medicine and interventions like customized oral appliances to provide my patients with a better night’s rest.”
The ABDSM Diplomate certification is a rigorous process that involves the completion of a computer-based examination and either the submission of case studies or the completion of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) Mastery Program. It recognizes those dentists duly licensed by law who have successfully completed the certification requirements established by the ABDSM.
Since 2001, Dr. Bulnes-Newton has practiced at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry, including a long-term tenure with Dental Sleep Solutions. She has treated more than 1000 patients in Tampa Bay for primary snoring and OSA in the past 10 years. This year, Dr. Bulnes-Newton is launching Sleep Apnea Solutions Tampa out of her current office, which provides streamlined access for the Tampa Bay community to the dental sleep team.
Dr. Bulnes-Newton received her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis, completed dental school at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, and received a degree in Advanced Education in General Dentistry from the University of Florida. Dr. Bulnes-Newton is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the West Coast District Dental Association, the Hillsborough County Dental Association, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.
