About Sleep Group Solutions and APZME

Sleep Group Solutions is a privately held dental & medical sleep medicine education, instrumentation, and in-office training company. Based in Hollywood, Florida, and established in 2005, SGS focuses primarily on the dental treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Rapid growth within SGS and the dental sleep medicine industry has been spurred by the fact that over $4 Billion is spent annually to treat sleep apnea with therapies that are largely unsuccessful and have managed to cumulatively treat less than 1% of the affected patients over the past 20 years. More and more physicians and dentists are seeking out SGS for their sleep needs.

Today, Sleep Group Solutions stands alone as the only provider of a complete suite of solutions. Starting with continuing education courses and in-office training, screening, diagnostic, and treatment instrumentation. With over 50 Million people in North America suffering from sleep apnea and less than 0.5% of the dentists currently trained and equipped to offer assistance, we can expect to see continued growth in this field over the next decade. By offering every piece of the education, screening, diagnosis, and treatment puzzle, SGS provides a unique position to capitalize on this tremendous growth.

APZME is a sleep management organization designed to take our member practices to new heights and achieve the sleep medicine goals of our providers. With experiences in sleep averaging twenty years, your guides (some of us call ourselves doctors) will be ready to help you begin a new sleep practice, grow an existing one, sell a mature one, or help you with all three. We believe, due to established norms in this space, that as a management group containing a large diversity of sleep practices, the fraternity will be greater than the sum of its parts.
