Dr. Chad Denman attended Florida State University for an undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology and then Marquette University for dental school. He moved to Austin in 2006 after falling in love with the city during a trip the previous year. After several years working as a dentist in Austin, Dr. Denman decided to change courses and become a sleep specialist. This was spurred by his father passing away from undiagnosed sleep apnea. Dr. Denman wanted to offer the tools needed to screen for sleep apnea, both to doctors as well as directly to patients. Dr. Denman’s goal is to eradicate sleep apnea by offering solutions to everyone. Dr. Denman is very active within the sleep medicine industry and is a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine board. When not working, he spends his time giving back as a speaker for the International Academy of Sleep and a coach for other dentists wanting to join the field of sleep medicine. You can also find Dr. Denman on several podcasts, offering advice on a variety of sleep-related topics. His commitment to solving the sleep apnea crisis went even further when he was selected as one of only two individuals to participate in an FDA trial for an oral laser to treat snoring and sleep apnea.
