AMERICAN ACADEMY OF SLEEP MEDICINE
Since its founding in 1975, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has been focused on studying, diagnosing, and treating various sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and insomnia.

AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION
Since it was established in the mid-19th century (1859), the American Dental Association (ADA) has worked hard to support scientific research, promote ethical standards for dental professionals, and provide dentists and patients alike with reliable information on dental care and oral health. It is the oldest and largest dental society in the world; it has a membership of more than 157,000 dentists.

Additionally, this organization is concerned with promoting ethical standards of practice among its members and encouraging dentists to pursue continuing education.
Beyond the Dental Office
Dr. Mogell attended both Florida State University and University of Florida, but his loyalty is with the Seminoles. When he isn’t working hard as a sleep dentist in Vero Beach, he tries to visit Tallahassee at least once each year to support his favorite team.
