Course Description


In 2017, the ADA released a Proposed Policy Statement on the Role of Dentistry in Treatment of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders. They recommended that dentists are encouraged to screen patients for SRBD as part of a comprehensive medical and dental history. Are you screening your patients for SRBD?

This program will discuss the basics of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders and how you can start to effectively screen your patients in your practice. There will be a brief overview of treatment options.

After completion of this course, the participant will:

  • gain a better understanding of Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders
  • learn appropriate patient screening strategies
  • appreciate an overview of treatment options
