Join us in New York for our First Annual Dental Sleep Continuum

We are excited to announce our first annual Dental Sleep Continuum in New York City starting this July!

What is the dental sleep continuum?

I will be joined by Dr. Bennett and Dr. Gelb for the first annual Dental Sleep Continuum in conjunction with Nierman Practice Management. This continuum offers practicing dentists a comprehensive program aimed at providing hands on clinical experience in all aspects of oral appliance therapy (OAT). Through this continuum, dentists will gain expertise in successfully treating obstructive sleep apnea and disruptive snoring.

This 3-session, 6-day program is ideal for those just beginning to implement dental sleep medicine, as well as anyone that wants to expand their knowledge and increase their experience in providing oral appliance therapy to more patients in their dental practice.

3 weekends of lectures and hands on learning

Nationally known experts in the field of dental sleep medicine will lead the sessions. At completion of the 3-session course, you will leave with the knowledge to properly evaluate patients for sleep disordered breathing problems, as well as how to screen for temporomandibular joint disorders.

We will take a look at several different oral appliances and you will have the opportunity to make three different custom-made devices specifically for you. It will help you gain a better understanding of how to create these appliances. The lab breakout sessions will help participants:

  • Learn standard patient examination techniques.
  • Be proficient in taking impressions and bite relationships for different appliances.
  • With the proper fitting of the oral appliances.
  • Make adjustments to the appliances.
  • Properly manage potential side effects.

This course will provide 48 hours of CE credit, along with a solid foundation for participants in studying for Dental Sleep Medicine board exams. Register now and we look forward to seeing you in New York beginning in July! Please contact me if you have any questions.

Lectures to Attend in the First Half of 2018

Just because January has come to an end, it doesn’t mean you have to throw your whole goal of continuing education out of the window. There is so much left in the year!
