Mallory Madden - Sleep Program Manager

Mallory is the Sleep Program Manager for Kansas Sleep Solutions. She walks patients through the entire process from getting patients tested for sleep apnea to the proper oral appliance therapy treatment. She educates and ensures that all patients get the care they need. She strives to ensure that the patient journey is as smooth as possible for each patient. 

Mallory grew up in the mountains of North Carolina before moving to the coast. This is where she met her husband who was stationed there as a naval corpsman. Upon his retirement they returned to his hometown of Emporia. Mallory was a dental assistant for over seventeen years prior to coming to Kansas Sleep Solutions. In that field and in her new position her main joy is patient interaction and ensuring their comfort. 

Being a mother to an energetic two-year-old son keeps her on the run in her free time. She is also a fur-mama to a just as high-energy Australian Shepherd. In the fall you will find her watching football with the family every Sunday and preparing for an exciting hunting season. Mallory also enjoys traveling with her family and experiencing new places together.
