Dr. Fishman is board certified in Dental Sleep Medicine and is a Diplomate of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy. He has been treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnea since 2008.
In 2008, Dr. Fishman was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This is when he became familiar with oral appliance therapy for the treatment of OSA. After taking several courses and receiving training in dental sleep medicine, he constructed his first oral appliance for himself that same year. With his appliance in place, his AHI score improved from a pre-treatment score of 23 (moderate OSA) to 0.8 (normal). The incredible results inspired Dr. Fishman to pursue the study and treatment of OSA and snoring. It became an area of special interest in his general practice. Interestingly, he still sleeps with that same appliance every night.
After selling his practice in 2012, Dr. Fishman decided to dedicate his professional career exclusively to the treatment of dental sleep medicine in order to help others suffering from OSA. He continues to attend seminars and courses to further his knowledge and treatment skills.
Dr. Fishman is a member and Diplomate of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy and a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Metro Detroit Sleep Society, the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association and the Detroit District Dental Society.
Dr. Fishman resides in West Bloomfield, MI with his wife. They have three adult children and four grandchildren.
