At Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center, we understand how complicated and frustrating it can feel to get diagnosed with sleep apnea and finally find a comfortable and effective treatment that works for you. We want to help patients get the treatment they need to improve their health without jumping through hoops or visiting multiple doctors. Our one-stop-shop for sleep helps patients seamlessly navigate through every aspect of their sleep treatment. From start to finish, we strive to see that every single patient who walks through our door is successfully treated.
New Patient Appointment
Before we can prescribe a sleep apnea treatment, we first meet with patients for a new patient appointment. During this time, we will review any past sleep test results in addition to examining the airways. If a patient does not have a sleep apnea diagnosis or their last test was a long time ago, we will send them home with a Home Sleep Test (HST) the same day as their first patient appointment, if appropriate. This test is read and interpreted by a Board Certified Sleep Physician. Patients don’t have to leave home to take their test or search for a physician for a diagnosis. We can most often take care of everything from our office.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
After we receive your test results and recommendations from a Board Certified Sleep Physician, we can then discuss our different treatment options. We offer both CPAP and oral appliances. We have a Registered Respiratory Therapist in our office so we can provide CPAP to patients who need immediate treatment or whose insurance requires the use of CPAP. We can also use combination therapy that involves both CPAP and oral appliances. Throughout your CPAP treatment, we will follow up with you to ensure you’re happy with your treatment so we can make adjustments if needed.
Many patients prefer oral appliances to CPAP. We offer a Treatment Guarantee for patients who start with an oral appliance. If we cannot sufficiently treat their sleep apnea if they start with an oral appliance, we will switch them over to CPAP at no additional out of pocket cost. We monitor all oral appliances with home sleep tests so we can objectively measure results and ensure patients receive adequate treatment.

More regenerative sleep leads to better energy during the days and a happier life overall.

When you are choosing a dentist, there are many things you need to consider: training, credentials, and experience, for example. Dr. Roubal has all that (see below), but what really makes him special is his passion for dentistry and for helping his patients. He is a dentist who is caring and dedicated.
Dr. Roubal has spent more than three decades as a dentist in Nebraska dedicated to improving the lives of his patients by giving them more attractive and healthier smiles.

Dr. Roubal’s Credentials
Although Dr. Roubal graduated with his DDS from Creighton University in 1974, he has never stopped learning, and he continues to add certifications and hours for advanced training in sleep apnea and snoring treatment. In 2013, Dr. Roubal became a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and a Diplomate of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine, and is Past President of the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. His facility is also accredited by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, one of only 35 institutions nationwide to hold this distinction.
These professional organizations and the recognitions they have given him set Dr. Roubal and the Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center apart from other dentists and practices, being the most highly trained, credentialed, and experienced within a 200 mile radius.
Dr. Roubal also makes sure his staff are well-trained to assist you with your sleep problems with a good understanding of the problem and its treatment.
Dr. Tracy Brigden
Dr. Brigden was born in Blackpool, England and moved to the United States with his parents in 1970. Beginning his career as a radiologic technologist specializing in CAT scans and MRIs, Dr. Brigden considered going to medical school, but ultimately decided dentistry was where he wanted to make his impact. Dr. Brigden established a successful practice at Legacy Dental, and in 2015 decided to focus more on sleep treatment and thus joined Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center. Dr. Brigden shadowed Dr. Roubal for a year before seeing his own patients and learned what it takes clinically to far exceed national standards for successful sleep apnea and snoring treatment. Along with hands on experience with Dr. Roubal, Dr. Brigden has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education courses specific to Dental Sleep treatment, and in 2020, became a Diplomate
of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, which demonstrates the highest level of dedication and knowledge in dental sleep health.
The Decision Is Yours
Sleep apnea is a complex and serious problem with many different potential solutions. At the Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center, we are dedicated to giving you a full range of solutions so that you know all your options. For some, CPAP is the right choice. For others, oral appliances are a much more sensible option. Sometimes, lifestyle changes can make the difference in your health and your sleep. Often, we may need a combination of approaches.
We will give you all the information you need to know. We will talk to you about which treatments will work best for you, and the limits and benefits of each, but we let you make the decision for yourself.
With over 45 years of practice in Nebraska, Dr. Roubal has touched many lives with his dedicated approach to dentistry. You can ask anyone who has worked with him about the quality of care they received from Dr. Roubal.
With this high level of care, it’s no wonder that Dr. Roubal receives most of his patients due to referrals from previous patients and medical providers.
