Seminar Description:
Did you know that dentists play a key role in treating sleep apnea?  Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, stroke, heart conditions and diabetes.  Did you know there are hundreds of undiagnosed patients in your practice suffering from sleep apnea?  Dentists have a unique opportunity to detect and treat this debilitating condition in patients who may never have sought help.  This interactive course is designed to educate you on dental sleep medicine and how you can improve your patients’ overall health and quality of life while building your practice.

This one day course is based on real-life day to day practice and implemented techniques that have led to successful results with OSA therapy. Go beyond just the science and learn an implementation system that actually works.  Attention is given to the four steps to successful implementation – Awareness, Diagnosis, Financials, Treatment. You will leave this seminar with confidence and understand: 

  • Overview of sleep and sleep apnea
  • Overview of health consequences of untreated sleep apnea
  • Creating awareness in the hygiene department
  • How to get a diagnosis from a sleep physician
  • Fundamentals of analyzing a sleep study
  • Overview of treatment options
  • How an oral appliance works and oral appliance selection
  • Appointment by appointment treatment workflow
