This 4-session, 64 CE credit program is a comprehensive educational experience for implementing airway and sleep apnea treatment into a dental practice.

Learn from leading educators in dental sleep medicine, including Dr. Michael Gelb, DDS, Steve Lamberg, DDS, Dr. Anjoo Ely, DDS and Rose Nierman, and more, as well as our guest faculty that includes a sleep physician, ENT, neurologist, an RPSGT.

To provide a unique, personalized experience, each Mini-Residency class is limited to the first 20 live participants. This allows us to devote the necessary time to each practitioner’s background and individual goals in dental sleep medicine. The class becomes a cohesive group during the 4 sessions with open discussions and idea-sharing.

With an emphasis on hands-on and practical integration, you will gain the skills, knowledge, and blueprints needed to incorporate sleep apnea treatment into a dental practice successfully.

Dentists receive 2 sleep apnea appliances to experience for themselves as they do hands-on walkthroughs of the entire workflow including screening, the examination and workup, sleep apnea appliance bite registrations, appliance delivery and fitting, and follow-up/calibration appointments.

In between each session, the class maintains group discussions and are given assignments to complete, including literature to read, and cases to prepare. Team members are also given tasks to work on, such as communication scripts and physician outreach goals.

By the end of session 4, the dental practice should be confidently treating obstructive sleep apnea patients, have physician referral networks in place, medical insurance reimbursement implemented, be ready for various dental sleep medicine accreditation programs, and have their practice set-up for dental sleep medicine success.
