A Nine News crew came in to interview a patient and myself about the NightLase laser snoring treatment. They were interested to see whether it worked and spoke to one of our patients that had a successful treatment. After that I was interviewed about the treatment and how it works to stop snoring and help patients and their partners sleep better. They also got some footage of the laser in action. About 40 min of footage resulted in a 2 min segment. Enjoy!

Dr Pang was invited as a keynote speaker and asked to present his research and the latest findings regarding the NightLase laser treatment at the Laser and Health Academy Symposium in Bled, Slovenia. While a proven success for snoring, he has also found that the treatment benefits those with sleep breathing disorders such as Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, hypopneas and apneas. Around 300 delegates attended the Symposium at the small European nation to hear about the latest advances in medical and dental lasers.
He was the only Australian speaker and the ONLY lecturer of over 100 presentations over 3 days to be asked to repeat it. He presented it again to a closed group of advanced users, experts, teachers, company president and Fotona ownership partners.

Dr Jason Pang was invited by Dr Derek Mahoney to speak at his mini-residency about the use of lasers on Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Increasing numbers of people are seeking treatment for snoring and sleep apnoea, yet many do not know that they can get help from dental practitioners. As a leader in the field of both laser and sleep dentistry, it was an opportunity for attendees to hear the latest developments in dental sleep medicine from Dr Pang. He presented the science and the results of various laser treatments for sleep disordered breathing. He showed not only the current research being done but also his own results as the first dental practitioner in NSW to do the patented NightLase treatment.

At the start of term Dr Pang spoke at Balgowlah North Public School about dental health and the impact that hidden sugars have on the growing bodies of our children. He spoke to about 180 children from Years 3 & 4. The children were quite engaged as he discussed the answers to a quiz that he gave them at the end of last term.
He also gave them a copy of That Sugar Film to use as a resource.

Each year American’s spend over US$2 billion on confectionary. Trick or treaters will on average consume 144 teaspoons of sugar. Luckily the number is dramatically less in Australia but retailers still see a jump of some 30% in sales of confectionary. With so much information recently on the effects of sugar on our bodies and obesity at an all-time high I hope that parents and their kids would moderate their intake. Products like the Ozospa Alkaline rinse and Vita-Mints are designed to neutralise the acids that are in sour lollies and the sticky candies that stay on children’s teeth.
- 1. Sugar free gum contains xylitol to combat tooth decay
- 2. Eat the candy in one sitting rather than spread out
- 3. Teach the kids to eat in moderation
- 4. You dispense the candy to the kids
- 5. Remind them to rinse with water after snacking
- 6. Take time to make sure they brush well
