Course Description:

Sleep Apnea is a condition that affects more than 80 million Americans, yet less than 10 % of this population is ever diagnosed. As a general dentist, you have the ability to screen THOUSANDS of patients each year, and ultimately improve their lives. Before treating any condition though, one must fully understand the science behind the disease, along with the materials and protocols. This course will explain the medical principles necessary for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea by the general dentist. The materials, technology and clerical needs will be referenced throughout the course, aiding in the interactive learning experience for the participant. Putting these pieces together will quickly build word of mouth referrals, providing a low-stress, highly profitable area of practice for the dentist. Available in 1 day, 1day lecture/1 day hands on and 2 day participation course.
