Meet Dr. Dunaway
Dr. Lige Dunaway is a general dentist focused on advanced preventative, restorative, orofacial pain and sleep disorders. He puts his patients at ease thanks to his extensive dental experience at the Ochsner Lafayette General Hospital. He is also an adjunct professor for the LSU School of Dentistry and ADDSM Qualified Dentist.
Established in 1991, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) is the only non-profit national professional society dedicated exclusively to the practice of dental sleep medicine. The AADSM is the leading national organization representing dentists who treat sleep-disordered breathing, which includes obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring, with oral appliance therapy (OAT). The AADSM Qualified Dentist designation is for any dentist in need of a credential that demonstrates basic competency in dental sleep medicine. It is intended to be a stepping stone to becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM).
