The way you should be treated.™

Silver Cross Sleep Disorders Center Hosts Free Lecture March 22

If snoring is keeping you up at night, you are not alone.  About half of all people snore at some point in their lives. It is more common among men and those who are overweight, but snoring is a problem of both genders.  Snoring appears to run in families and usually becomes more serious as people age.  Not only can it affect your daytime function but it can lead to hypertension, heart disease, mood and memory problems, and even death.
