Meet Dr. Edward Shukovsky
Dr. Edward Shukovsky is an experienced dentist who has pursued many years of additional education and training in the field of dental sleep medicine. Helping patients who suffer from sleep apnea and snoring has been a special area of focus for Dr. Shukovsky for decades. He has embraced numerous state-of-the-art techniques, including non-surgical sleep apnea treatments such as oral appliance therapy and laser solutions, that can help many patients reduce the effects and health risks of sleep apnea without the need to rely exclusively on cumbersome CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines.
A graduate of the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Shukovsky continued studying cosmetic dentistry at the Hornbrook Group and the Aesthetic Masters. He subsequently obtained advanced training in dental sleep medicine and earned membership in the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. He is a board-certified Diplomate of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy, as well as a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and many other respected organizations.
Dr. Shukovsky is an extensively skilled and experienced dentist who has a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between sleep apnea and oral tissues that block a normal, healthy flow of air during sleep. He has spent much of his career working toward finding the most comfortable and effective solutions to treat sleep apnea and help individuals improve their quality of sleep, reduce serious risks to their health, and enhance their day-to-day lives. Dr. Shukovsky will be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation to evaluate your concerns and talk with you about options that may present the best possible solution for your needs.
The entire team here at Stamford Sleep Solutions is dedicated to providing a comfortable environment and a friendly, relaxing atmosphere for our patients. Conveniently located just minutes away from the heart of downtown Stamford, our office includes many of the latest advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies to help patients who suffer from sleep apnea obtain a healthier, more restful night’s sleep. We are also fully committed to high standards of environmental infection control, sanitation, and safety precautions throughout the office.
Does Insurance Cover Sleep Apnea?
Most patients who qualify for Medicare are able to receive full Medicare insurance coverage for an oral appliance prescribed by Dr. Shukovsky to treat sleep apnea as long as certain conditions are met. Medicare patients must have undergone a sleep study and been given a diagnosis, and they must present an Affidavit of CPAP Intolerance before coverage for oral appliance therapy can begin.
As an approved Durable Medical Equipment Provider for Medicare, Dr. Shukovsky can help many qualified Medicare patients offset the costs of customized oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea. If you have questions about insurance, we encourage you to contact our practice for additional information.
Financing Options for Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment
Our practice accepts a wide range of convenient payment methods to help patients who are looking for the best way to bring sleep apnea treatment into their budget. Payment options include affordable financing plans through reputable companies such as CareCredit® and LendingClub®, which offer qualified applicants a selection of interest-friendly installment plans that can help them pay for their treatment over time. Once your personalized treatment plan has been developed, a member of our team can present a cost estimate to you for review and answer any questions you may have.
In addition to in-person consultations here at our office, Dr. Shukovsky can meet with you for an initial consultation from the comfort of your own home. A “virtual consultation” can provide you with a convenient way for our doctor to talk with you about your concerns and discuss potential treatment options. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
