KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Barry Freydberg

Dr. Barry Freydberg, a 1968 graduate of the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, transitioned his successful general dentistry practices in Illinois and Arizona to dental sleep medicine. He says, “In my senior practice years, sleep medicine is new and fascinating, physically much easier than general dentistry and more rewarding. We are now also saving lives – in addition to dentitions.”

In 2007, Dr. Gordon Christensen appointed Dr. Freydberg as the Director of Technology at the new Scottsdale Center for Dentistry. In February 2009, the Chicago Dental Society awarded Dr. Freydberg the Gordon Christensen Lecture Recognition Award for his outstanding teaching contributions over the years.

“Practicing dental sleep medicine is a joy, and I can’t wait to share stories and videos of patients, who attribute sleep dentists for not just saving their lives, but having discovered the source of many of their medical problems, when their physicians only treated their illnesses.”
