He has numerous publications and has dedicated his career to advancing the art and science of dentistry. In 2016, Dr. Bolding’s father began to develop Alzheimer’s disease and then, in 2017, his father had a debilitating stroke that the neurologist and neurosurgeons were convinced was most likely attributed to obstructive sleep apnea.
