It’s a typical day on the job: you see several patients, observe and clean their teeth and get them ready for a visit from the dentist. As you’re cleaning one patient’s mouth, something seems a little off. You notice that they have a large neck, and it’s difficult to see their soft palate as they say “Ahhhh.” When you ask the patient about their week, they complain that they’ve been feeling tired and haven’t been sleeping well at night. You’ve experienced patients with a similar story and appearance before. What’s the connection?
