Dr. Stanley Rauchwerger
Dr. Stanley Rauchwerger has been practicing family and general dentistry in Hamilton, NJ since 1980. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University College of Dentistry, completed his residency at Greenpoint Hospital in New York, and was awarded a Fellowship from the American Academy of General Dentistry. This followed his receiving bachelors and masters degrees in chemical engineering, also from NYU, and working as an engineer in the petrochemical industry.
Dr. Rauchwerger is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine as well as a founding member of the Princeton Group for Dental Excellence. He is also a member of the American Dental, NJ Dental, and Mercer County Dental Associations. After having been a clinical instructor at NYU College of Dentistry, he has given numerous presentations at RWJ Health & Wellness Center on the use of oral appliances in treating obstructive sleep apnea and migraine/tension headaches. He also initiated the oral cancer screening program at the RWJ Center.
In his many years practicing all phases of general dentistry, Dr. Rauchwerger has had a special interest and extensive experience in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, snoring, migraine and tension headaches, and TMJ pain, as well as caring for those patients who suffer from a fear of going to the dentist. Using oral appliance therapy, he has successfully treated patients who suffer from these conditions, and even patients with severe sleep apnea who could not tolerate the CPAP machine.
For Dr. Rauchwerger, one of the most satisfying aspects of treating patients with sleep disorders and snoring is their having more energy and less daytime sleepiness, and the fact that finally their spouse can sleep in the same room again. Dr. Rauchwerger works with his patients to choose the most effective oral appliance for them, and he works with their sleep physician to confirm the progress and effectiveness of their treatment.
