Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency Overview

The SCOPE Institute Dental Sleep Medicine Mini Residency is a 4-session, 64 CE Credit program designed to give dental practices the knowledge and guidance to fully incorporate obstructive sleep apnea treatment into their practice, and the experience to overcome obstacles in order to grow and flourish in dental sleep medicine.

Led by main speaker Dr. Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS, RPSGT, D.ABDSM, DABCP, DABCDSM, DABOP, the mini residency includes a line-up of experienced practitioners and thought-leaders, including former AACP president Dr. Terry Bennet, DDS, D.ABDSM, D.ABCP, D.ABCDSM, and various physician specialists.

In between each session, dentists are given homework and 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, and be ready for various dental sleep medicine accreditation programs.
