November 6-8, 2017         SLEEP MEDICINE IN THE DENTAL PRACTICE                Location:  Spear Campus

Sleep Medicine in the Dental Practice provides knowledge and understanding of sleep physiology and the life-threatening consequences of sleep-disordered breathing. It also addresses strategies for screening and treating sleep disorder patients within your dental practice with oral appliances.

Screening for at-risk patients, confirming the observations with a diagnosis in conjunction with the sleep physician, and application of oral appliance therapy is an easy and natural addition for almost every dental practice. What is not so natural or easy is incorporating a therapeutic service that is delivered using the medical model into a dental practice. The medical model is a different design with a different paradigm, and it can be a challenging undertaking without proper coaching and assistance.

Whether you are seeking a new intellectual challenge, wish to help your dental patients by screening for risks, or are looking to add to the therapies you provide, dental sleep medicine is one of the most unique, interesting and impactful opportunities in dentistry today.
