What GPs Should Know About Snoring

    For Patients

    Hello, I’m Richard Goodfellow.

    I’m a general dentist in Toronto with a practice limited to TMJ and sleep disordered breathing. Dentists are the #1 health professional who can recognize problems in children and adults who have headaches, migraines, and sleep breathing problems.

    For instance, children should not snore at all. If you have a child, know a child, or see a child who snores, that has to be investigated because according to the American Pediatric Society, that is a problem. Adults should not snore. If you see a patient with a scalloped tongue or large tonsils that should be investigated for sleep breathing problems. If patients wake up with headaches, that’s worth investigating.

    I’m happy to help. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
