EPISODE 34 OF AIRWAY FIRST
Updated: May 20
My guest today is acclaimed dentist, international speaker, and author, Dr. Susan Maples. Dr. Maples leads a successful, insurance-independent Total Health Dental practice in Holt, Michigan. She brings preventive and restorative dental expertise, a passion for mouth-body total health, a Master's degree in Business/Marketing, and 30+ years of experience in private practice.
In 2012, Susan was named one of the Top 25 Women in Dentistry and one of the Top 8 Innovators (otherwise known as "disrupters") in Dentistry. She is also the immediate past President of the American Academy for Oral & Systemic Health (AAOSH).
She is the developer of the Hands-on Learning LabTM Kit, an interactional science-based learning program for dental patients, and SelfSeceen.net, an educational screening tool for patients and clinicians to uncover signs of illness such as Pre-Diabetes/Diabese, Obstructive Sleep Airway Disorders, Acid Reflux, and Chronic Systemic Inflammation.
Susan was a co-investigator in an award-winning diabetes research study entitled Diabetes Detection in the Dental Office. She is also the creator of Total Health Academy, a robust online learning curriculum for dental teams to develop a complete oral systemic dental practice.
We are also proud and honored to have Dr. Maples as one of the members of the Children's Airway First Foundation Advisory Board.

Your child's adult healthspan depends on how we approach these issues today. I live in the trenches of advanced airway disorders and it's wretched. It should freak us out that an estimated 26% of Americans have OSA today...and only 4% have been diagnosed! ~ Dr. Susan Maples
