Interview with Meghna Dassani DMD

    What was the hardest scene from your book to write?

    The hardest thing while writing was making sure I was sharing enough information to be of value while making sure it didn’t get too technical or text book-y for the readers. I know not everything I geek out over would be as interesting to everyone else.

    Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre?

    Raising awareness about sleep apnea and helping families connect the dots is my passion. I see too many people struggling to get answers or know what questions to ask their health care providers or even know who to ask these questions. Too many adults and kids are under diagnosed and over medicated. Clearing the air about sleep disordered breathing in adults and kids is the need of the day…hence the topic and the book, a resource for everyone who might be struggling with sleep.

    What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

    Being able to put all the research that I read and apply clinically daily into a format that everyone can understand and utilize to improve their sleep, their health and their quality of life was probably the most satisfying thing to do.

    What book that you have read has most influenced your life?

    There are so many that have done this at different times in my life. Most recently though, I’d have to say its these 2 books: Into The Magic Shop by James Doty and The Go Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann

    Tell us a little about yourself? Perhaps something not many people know?

    I love to travel and I have the most amazing travel buddies in my hubby and my girls. We love to explore new places along with he local flavors and art. As a trained baker, I love seeing how different cultures bring different ingredients together. Give me a book, a cup of coffee in a local coffeeshop or book store and I don’t really need anything more.

    Can you tell us something about your book that is not in the summary?

    Treating sleep disordered breathing is a multi disciplinary approach. What we truly need is a team that works together to help these people that are suffering, sleep better and breathe better. Knowing who is needed on that team makes a world of difference. And yes, it is possible to feel better and get healthier sleep.
