Course Description

Breathing Disorders, Oral Medicine, Sleep Apnea, Sleep Disorders

An overview of sleep disordered breathing and what the dental team can do about it. We start with the basics: sleep, dental appliances, how to work with sleep physicians, medical insurance interaction AND the “ABC’s” of marketing. Then we go a bit beyond the basics: complications, titration and follow-up testing, team development, complex sleep disorders and advanced marketing.

“The educational teaching methodology used in this course is live, interactive lecture presented via Zoom webinar with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Both the live webinar and the PowerPoint presentation incorporate a variety of audio and visual cues to enhance audience members’ understanding and retention of key concepts. In addition, question and answer periods are provided for at the conclusion of each section of the live webinar.”
