About the Event

There is an airway obstruction epidemic today that is affecting children across all healthcare fields. Symptoms such as mouth breathing, snoring, UARS, and sleep apnea are continuing to become more prevalent among our youngest generation. As a result, it is our obligation to stay educated on the resulting health effect in (1) pediatric sleep quality (2) under-developed midfaces (3) muscle parafunction and (4) REM sleep fragmentation with associated ADHD like symptoms. We believe dentistry and medicine should work together to help our children. Join us at this year’s 4th Annual Pediatric Airway Symposium on October 22nd and 23rd, 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. You will learn from physicians, dentists and other pediatric healthcare providers who are leading the way in collaboration to diagnose and treat children suffering from sleep related breathing disorders.

Host: Ryan P. Robinson

Pain & Sleep Therapy Center of Delaware – Dentist
DDS, DABCP, DABCDSM, DABDSM, QOM-D

October 22nd — 7:00 AM

Dr. Robinson is Delaware’s first and only doctor triple board certified in Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine. After many years of treating the airway in his general dental practice, Dr Robinson decided to open up a specialty practice to address the needs of the community. This new practice called The Pain and Sleep Therapy Center of Delaware Valley focuses on finding the origin of the problem as opposed to treating with medications and “band-aid” fixes that have become so routine in today’s medical system.

Dr. Robinson has taken over 1000 hours of continuing education courses in Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Breathing Disorders and has been personally mentored by the world’s leading airway clinicians. Dr. Robinson works with patients of all ages. He states, “It is extremely rewarding to help an adult enhance their quality of life by finding and treating the source of their issues. What’s even more powerful is treating children and having the opportunity to CURE their problems.” He goes on to say “Children are the most fun because with just a little intervention and therapy we can help the child grow and develop properly, saving them a lifetime of issues that otherwise would not have been identified. We focus on identifying these issues at a young age so we don’t ever have to treat them as an adult”

Eric Phelps

Norcal Airway – Orthodontist
DDS, MS

October 22nd — 3:00 PM

Dr. Phelps entered Cal Poly, SLO as an architecture major after graduating from Leigh High School in San Jose. He soon realized that drawing did not come naturally.  Fortunately, math and science did, so he switched to engineering. During his college years, Dr. Phelps was in orthodontic treatment to fix two impacted canines. To keep his career options open, he chose Environmental Engineering as his new major because the curriculum included all of the prerequisites for dental school (Biology, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, etc.). Dr. Phelps, by graduating summa cum laude from the Cal Poly School of Engineering in 1997, was fortunate to be able to enter the UCLA School of Dentistry in the fall of 1997 as a UC Regent Scholar.

 Dr. Phelps enrolled in the Oral Biology Masters Program at UCLA with an interest in bone biology. He was able to finish the Masters Program concurrently with dental school in 2001 by taking Masters courses during lunch and conducting research at night. Dr. Phelps completed his orthodontic residency at UCLA in 2003, and also started Phelps Orthodontics the same year. Phelps Orthodontics became Phelps and Cohen Orthodontics in 2005 when Dr. Phelps’ great friend and dental school classmate, Dr. Jason Cohen, joined the practice. Dr. Phelps added “Airway Education” to his professional mission along his journey after discovering he himself suffered from severe sleep apnea. This led to the founding of Nor Cal Airway in 2018. At Nor Cal Airway, Dr. Phelps focuses on helping patients with TMJ problems, airway obstruction, chronic pain, and sleep apnea breathing disorders.

Darius Loghmanee

Internist, Pediatric Sleep Medicine
MD, FAAP, FAASM

October 22nd — 1:00 PM

After his training he spent seven years at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago where he evaluated and treated children with control of breathing and sleep disorders as the Associate Director of the Pediatric Sleep Medicine Center. Dr. Loghmanee established a population sleep health learning network after being recruited to the Advocate Medical Group to build the pediatric sleep service line. Through systematic collaborations with primary care physicians, dentists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists, craniofacial plastic surgeons, occupational therapists, orofacial myologists, psychologists, faith based organizations, schools, and community groups, the network has been able to make significant strides towards ensuring the optimal airway for the largest number of children as early in life as possible.
