Beyond his Dental career, Dr. Riley has special interest in the Memory Challenged Community.

Of special interest to him is the current research around oxygen starvation during sleep apnea and its role in the progression of dementia.
In an attempt to solve his own snoring problem, Dr. Riley discovered he was also suffering from sleep apnea, which was contributing to his decreased energy and medical problems. Study and research has led him to the treatment he offers his patients. He is encouraged by the gratitude that patients have expressed as his treatment has contributed to the quality of person’s lives.
