“I had such a great experience at the Meadowlands Hospital! From ER Registration to nurses, anesthesiologist to my doctor – everyone was very professional and nice but most importantly caring! This is what makes this hospital great!"
— Emma R., Meadowlands Hospital Same Day Surgery Patient, May 2017

“MHMC Staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. Nurses always made sure my bed was made and cleaned. I never knew hospital food could be so good. Great meals! Nurses were helpful – amazing staff. For my first C-section, there is no way I could have done it without my nurses. Thank you. Nurses made sure I was in no pain and kept up with me as much as possible. Everyone was friendly and polite. Staff made me feel like family and they honestly cared. At first I was very nervous because it was my first time in this hospital – after my experience I will recommend this hospital to everyone. One of the best hospitals I have ever been to – please keep up the good work!”

Treating Sleep Apnea With Dental Appliances

On April 7th, 2014, Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center in Secaucus hosted a lecture by Dr. Maria Sokolina, DDS, on Oral Appliance Therapy for the Management of Snoring and the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). According to Dr. Sokolina, patients who are experiencing sleep disorders would wear oral appliances during sleep to maintain potency of upper airways. By doing this, airways would be increased in their dimensions and reduce potential collapsibility. During the lecture, Dr. Sokolina spoke on several topics pertaining to sleep disorders including physiology of snoring and sleep disordered breathing, OSA diagnostic and treatment options. The effects of disrupted sleep on the growth and development of children with specific emphasis on the importance of early orthodontic evaluation and treatment were also discussed.

Dr. Maria Sokolina, DDS is an accomplished dentist who practices the latest techniques in dental sleep medicine and oral appliance therapy. She has completed hundreds of hours of continued education at such renowned institutions such as Tufts University, Dawson Academy, USDI and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Apnea. She is a leading authority on alternative solutions to the CPAP apparatus that is used for OSA.
