Dr. Cornell is passionate about lifelong learning and skill development. In recent years she completed additional training in surgery pertaining to placement of dental implants so that she can offer placement and restoration of dental implants to her patients. Another passion of hers is providing patients with their best night’s sleep possible with Dental Sleep Medicine. This growing field enables dentists to assist patients in the areas of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) as well as Snoring, achieving a more restful night sleep with use of oral appliances worn while sleeping.
