Course Details

As a graduate of a Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM) Mini-Residency who is in the process of expanding your practice to include DSM, you understand the challenges of integrating this discipline into your practice. Although you have already seen the life-changing effects oral appliance therapy can have on the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in your patients, understanding how to incorporate it into your practice can be difficult. Both the clinical and administrative teams are vital to the success of treating patients with OSA and other sleep problems.

 

In this comprehensive 2.5-day program, doctors – and two staff members at no extra cost – are invited to come explore the team approach to DSM patient care. Comprised of group sessions with the entire dental team as well as separate breakout sessions for dentists, clinical assistants, and administrative team members to help each team member better understand their vital role in managing patients with sleep problems, this program will help participants expand their knowledge of DSM, improve treatment success, and grow this part of their practice!

 

All participants will be able to bring 2 Staff Members with them at no extra cost!
