Michael Simmons, DMD, FAGD
Diplomate American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, Diplomate American Board of Orofacial Pain. Fellow in Pain
Management UCLA School of Medicine, Clinical Assistant Professor USC Ostrov School of Dentistry and Lecturer UCLA School of Dentistry. As a dentist clinician, published researcher and educator in sleep medicine I would bring to the Board another collaborative viewpoint to help with multidisciplinary care of sleep disorders. I have served in multiple Board of Director positions including Board member for three years on the American Sleep Apnea Association and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. 2015 completes my term as President of my local dental society, 1340 member component, of the California Dental Association. My goals in serving on the Board of CSS would be to enable the current programs, engage more members within the CSS and help with growth of membership so that sleep disorders are more widely considered in health care settings. I would also advocate for improved interdisciplinary care models of sleep disorders.
