Welcome to Sleep Better Arkansas!

"Quality of life" is greatly dependent upon "quality of sleep."

Multiple treatment options exist for patients that have sleep-breathing disorders.  We believe in a multi-dimensional approach to therapy, and work with your physician to get you feeling your best!

Sleep apnea is a type of breathing disorder which is a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. Along with the generally decreased quality of life, people who suffer from sleep apnea also experience an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and depression. You may suffer from sleep apnea if you experience:

  • Loud or chronic snoring
  • Long pauses in breathing during the night
  • Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
  • Excessive daytime tiredness and irritability

Dr. Southard understands the stresses and health risks that come with sleepless nights. She herself has sleep apnea and couldn't use CPAP.  She studied other treatment methods and currently uses oral appliance therapy as her treatment of choice.  She may also be able to help you reduce and even eliminate your sleep problems altogether!

This website was created to educate patients about  the services we offer. You will find all of the information you need on these pages about sleep disordered breathing and the latest techniques and treatment options. 

Dr. Southard has received years of additional training in:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Snoring
  • TMD

Our goal at Sleep Better Arkansas is to help sleep disorder suffers find real solutions to their sleep problems and regain refreshing sleep in order to improve their overall health and quality of life. If sleep apnea or severe snoring affects you or someone you know, you should not delay treatment. Call Sleep Better Arkansas or request an appointment to schedule an evaluation and reclaim healthy sleep!
