Successful Implementation of Dental Sleep Medicine Course In Detail

In today’s competitive landscape, dental practices are increasingly looking for ways to differentiate themselves. By adding obstructive sleep apnea treatment to your list of services, you are providing a much needed service to patients while standing out from the crowd of local dentists. Did you know:

  • Doctors estimate that 9.1% of men and 4% of women have sleep apnea.
  • That translates to 18-25 million Americans (1 in every 15) living with sleep apnea.

And it could be higher! This means if your dental practices sees 2,000 patients a year, over 133 of those patients alone could be sleep apnea sufferers.

By implementing dental sleep medicine, you can start treating your dental patient base and help restore the lives of those 133 people.

In addition to your current dental patients, this dental sleep medicine course teaches you how to gain new patients outside of your dental base, with dental sleep marketing techniques, and sessions on how to receive physician referrals from the medical and sleep community.

This dental sleep seminar, geared toward the entire dental team, has sessions for the following:


  • Dental Sleep Medicine Terminology
  • Dental Sleep Screening (hygienist’s role)
  • The Sleep Apnea Clinical Exam
  • Oral Appliance Calibration / Follow-up Exams
  • Dental Sleep Medical Billing
  • PSGS / Home Sleep Study Protocols
  • Dental Sleep Marketing
  • Building Physician Referrals / Networking
  • Dental Sleep Implementation Guide for Growth
