AACP Mini Dental Sleep Residency

What a wonderful time teaching the first Class 1 (3 part Mini Sleep Residency) at the Atlanta Sleep School. Dentists were exposed to hands-on and didactic material to get them ready for identifying and treating non-complaint CPAP patients with oral appliances. Also, dentists were exposed to managing side effects and complications that may present with oral appliance therapy.

Thank you Class 1 of the mini residency. Class 2 will begin in September 2014 in Dallas, TX.
