Dr. Earl K. Bogrow



Dr. Bogrow is one of a select number of dentists in the U.S. who focuses exclusively on working with those who suffer from Sleep Apnea. He also teaches dental sleep medicine at the distinguished University of Michigan School of Dentistry, which in 2019, 2020 and 2021 ranked No. 1 in the world in Dentistry and Oral Sciences.

There are many reasons why Dr. Bogrow stands out among dentists who provide Sleep Apnea services.

Advanced Training: Dr. Bogrow is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). There are a select few dentists in the U.S. like him who have achieved this level of distinction and the certification. Dr. Bogrow follows the high standards set by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) in his knowledge, technical expertise and clinical protocols for treating sleep apnea.

After building up a successful dental practice in Southfield, Michigan for 35 years, Dr. Bogrow made the decision to turn over his full service dental practice, Mission Point Dental, to a caring and talented dentist who has continued his work so that he could dedicate his practice to the treatment of sleep apnea.

Since 2012, he has put all his effort and energy into helping patients who are suffering from Sleep Apnea so they can receive effective treatment. When he decided to focus on dental sleep medicine, Dr. Bogrow felt very strongly, and he still does today, that patients will benefit more fully when under the care of a highly trained Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. One who can provide treatment and follow-up to ensure the recommendations achieve the desired goals for the patient.

Dr. Bogrow has been serving his patients in Southfield since 1981. Having suffered from sleep apnea himself, Dr. Bogrow truly understands how his patients feel. He lives by a patient-first philosophy that is always centered around making your needs the highest priority. He believes no two patients are the same and each patient will be custom fitted for the oral appliance best suited to their individual needs. There are over 100 appliances approved by the FDA, of which only a few would be suited to any one person. Dr. Bogrow evaluates the proper fit for the individual to ensure the highest rate of success and avoid unwanted side effects.

Our Story

Dr. Bogrow personally understands the strain sleep apnea has on the lives of his patients. Suffering from sleep apnea himself, Dr. Bogrow originally tried conventional CPAP therapy, but it just didn’t work for him. He then discovered oral appliances and how much more comfortable and easy to use they were. It’s his mission to help his patients find the same success in sleep apnea treatment so they can live life on their own terms again.


Dr. Bogrow graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1979. In 1981, he completed his residency at the Department of Dental Health in Honolulu, Hawaii, then moved back to Michigan to start his dental practice. He is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (D-ABDSM).
