American Board of Otolaryngology and Sleep Medicine – Medical Director
Dr. Barbara Burggraaff, or as we call her Dr. B is a rare breed of physicians who is double board certified in the two most relevant specialties for treating snoring and sleep apnea: Otolaryngology (AKA, Ear, Nose and Throat doctor) and Sleep Medicine.
This allows Dr. Burggraaff the unique advantage of becoming intimately familiar with the relationship between how we breathe (and whether it’s through our noses or mouths) and how it relates into sleep. Her years of experience both as a surgeon as well as sleep lab director have culminated with a focus as our medical director. This role will enable her to train and oversee a team of clinicians and allow for the entire practice and patient base access to her knowledge and experience.
Dr. Burggraaff has a warm and caring personality. She is both a student and teacher in the art of mindfulness and meditation. The power of the breath and practicing awareness are some of the tools that she uses as non-pharmacological ways to help herself and her patients live better lives and get better sleep. Her journey has also led her on medical mission trips to Nepal which are deeply rewarding for her as well. When she is not in the office, Dr. B enjoys being outdoors and enjoying all that life has to offer. We are privileged and honored to have her as part of our team.
Jay Khorsandi, DDS realizing the key to total body health lies within a functional approach for each patient, Dr. Jay Khorsandi has progressed down a path of education and clinical experience with one goal in mind: To get his patients sleeping better and ultimately feeling better. For almost 20 years, Dr. Khorsandi has been improving the lives of patients whether it was fixing a chipped tooth on a bride the day of her wedding to extracting an infected tooth on near-term pregnant woman in desperate pain or helping a patient get a new job and partner in life from his confident new smile. Over the last 5 years he has focused his attention on something many of us take for granted. Our sleep. For patients that are suffering from snoring, sleep apnea and it’s many related problems, Dr. Khorsandi has incorporated an integrative approach to look at numerous factors while using cutting-edge technologies to help you sleep better, feel better and live a healthier life.
Dr. Khorsandi graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psycho-Biology and received his doctorate degree from Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago, IL. He completed his post-doctorate residency in Tucson, AZ focusing on Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). Dr. Khorsandi was also a member of the faculty at UCLA AEGD Residency program.

Furthermore he has earned the designation of Qualified Dentist within the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. This is given to members who have proven rigorous continuing education coursework in the field of dental sleep medicine. He is constantly attending and speaking at conferences to both learn more, and educate others about sleep and its importance. When not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and practicing yoga.
Dr. Greenburg is one of the foremost authorities on treating Snoring & Sleep Apnea (OSA). He was unhappy with the lack of knowledge by most Dentists treating OSA and dreamed of creating centers that consistently provided the highest level of quality care. The result was the creation of Snore No More which has now evolved to “Snore Experts”. Snore Experts has grown to 5 locations with more planned: Encino, Valencia, Beverly Hills, Pasadena and Brentwood.
Dr. Colletta helps patients achieve a lifetime of good health by providing them with the very best in dental sleep medicine. She, along with Drs. Greenburg and Khorsandi, has successfully treated thousands of snoring and sleep apnea patients, as their practice is strictly limited to this narrow field of dentistry. She graduated from the University of Washington with dual bachelor’s degrees and received her DDS from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. Upon discovering her passion for helping patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, she pursued additional educational opportunities in the field, became trained and certified in laser therapy for snoring, and went on to become one a handful of dentists to have completed the prestigious Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency at the UCLA School of Dentistry. Dr. Colletta is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, California Sleep Society, Los Angeles Dental Society, California Dental Society, and American Dental Association.
