Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a dangerous condition that can lead to excessive daytime drowsiness and an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes and vascular disease.
Traditionally, Apnea has been treated with the uncomfortable CPAP mask. Oral appliance therapy is a very comfortable and effective therapy and is fully approved and endorsed by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Cahn has been fabricating these appliances for over 27 years.

Tues., June 6 : Homestead National Historic Park: “Homesteading, Women’s Suffrage, and The Wizard of Oz”
This presentation explores the women’s suffrage and homesteading themes in Frank L. Baum’s, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The program highlights the ways those themes remain prominent in retellings of the classic tale. It uses brief vocal music elements to demonstrate the many interpretations of this American fairytale; including, songs from the 1939 Judy Garland film: The Wizard of Oz. Homesteading, Women’s Suffrage, and the Wizard of Oz, is an engaging program that explores the experiences that helped Baum shape his iconic story.
Tuesday, June 13th: Return to the Elephant Sanctuary!
Since 1995, The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee has provided elephants retired from performance and exhibition with a safe refuge and the companionship of other elephants. The facility has grown from 110 acres to 3,060 acres and has provided sanctuary to 29 elephants, making it North America's largest natural habitat refuge for captive elephants.
We are excited to return to the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee to see what is new, and also learn about their newest residents!
