Many dentists have taken several dental sleep medicine courses but find themselves struggling to make sleep apnea treatment a profitable service in their dental practice.
Through our 20+ years of experience educating dentists on implementing sleep apnea treatment, we have identified the most common roadblocks and challenges practices have when integrating sleep apnea services.
During the Advancing your Dental Sleep Practice course, we discuss how to overcome each of these obstacles, and focus on the key areas of implementation, working with sleep physicians, billing medical insurance, and handling complex cases.
