Founded in 2018, New Horizon Sleep Solutions is a leading, state-of-the-art facility providing sleep apnea treatment and evaluations for sleep-disordered breathing. We help individuals across Northern Wisconsin reclaim the ability to sleep deeply, quietly, and better than ever. Sleep is our passion, and we look forward to helping you rediscover yours.
We specialize in Oral Appliance Therapy — a dental solution for the medical condition of sleep apnea. As it is treating a medical condition, coverage for Oral Appliance Therapy falls under medical insurance, not dental insurance. We bill most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, and offer direct payment options for patients who choose not to use insurance.
We also offer financing through CareCredit.

What Our Patients Are Saying
“I worked shifts, and between no sleep at times and snoring, there was a lot of lost sleep. Because of oral appliance therapy, I sleep through the nights and wake up ready to go. Dr. Bloch and the staff were great.”
‒ Thomas O.
“I haven’t slept well for years. I would wake up during the night and would never get more than five hours of sleep a night. With my CPAP machine, I am sleeping better and longer. I don’t feel so tired during the day. I have high regard for Dr. Bloch suggesting that I was a likely candidate for a sleep study.”
‒ Lucille H.
“I wasn’t sleeping well, snoring, and tired ‒ no energy. Oral appliance therapy has helped me get a good night’s sleep and not snore nearly as much. I would approve checking out oral appliance therapy before CPAP therapy. It is easier and convenient. Dr. Bloch and his staff were first class in trying everything they could to make sure the appliance would function properly. Outstanding service!”
‒ Roger P.
“My life prior to oral appliance therapy was one of constant fatigue and irritability. I could not stay awake driving and was always challenged with being socially involved because I was so tired. With oral appliance therapy, I feel so much better than before; and most importantly, I do not feel afraid to drive the car. My experience with New Horizon Sleep Solutions and Dr. Bloch has been very good. I would highly recommend anyone considering an oral mouth appliance to make an appointment.”
‒ Rita M.
“When sleeping on my back, I would wake myself up just as I was falling asleep… I also had episodes of snoring. The oral appliance has changed how well I sleep. Every time I use it, I fall asleep quickly, and it feels like I dream from that moment until I wake up. I wake up feeling refreshed! The method Dr. Bloch used to make the appliance molds was painless and done with precision. I can’t speak any higher of the appliances. They definitely improve my quality of sleep!”
‒ Nic T.
