Dr. Dan Paolo V. Jorquia, DMD, guested on Good Morning Kuya, the morning show of UNTV News and Rescue, on February 28, 2022, where he explained the advantages of sleep therapy in performing dental procedures. Dr. Paolo, as he is popularly called, was interviewed by the show’s three main hosts.
In the interview, the hosts asked questions pertaining to the dental procedures and treatment that can be performed through sleep therapy, the preparation before undergoing the procedures and what to do after the procedures. Sleep therapy, as Doc Paolo explained, is a painless and safe method to perform dental procedures such as multiple extractions, surgery and other treatment. He also said that sleep therapy is recommended for patients who are restless, those with special needs, or those traumatized with past experience in dental procedures as sleep therapy can help them relax and sleep while the procedures are being done, thus minimizing the stress to the patients and their companions.

He finished his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of the Philippines in 2013 where he also underwent his dental externship training program and served as chief extern at UP PGH.
