It’s official! Dr. Mayoor Patel recently received his RPSGT certification, which makes him the second dentist in the country (maybe even the world) to receive this certification! Isn’t that great? RPSGT is a trademarked designation that is assigned to sleep technicians who have successfully passed the RPSGT Exam. Recipients must also have adhered to recertification policies. Upon completion of each, RPSGT can be placed after their name—Dr. Patel has completed this.

What is RPSGT?

Being involved in sleep medicine is important and the RPSGT certification helps to solidify that importance. The Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) is an internationally recognized credential that represents the highest certification in the field for the health care professionals who clinically assess patients with sleep disorders.

The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists sets the credentialing standards for the RPSGT credential and develops, maintains and administers the examination for all applicants. By administering the examination, the BRPT ensures that RPSGTs hold the highest level of core knowledge, skills, abilities and attributes possible.

How Do You Become a RPSGT?

To become a certified RPSGT, one must:

  • Have necessary clinical experience
  • Hold a Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification or its equivalent
  • Adhere to the BRPT Standards of Conduct
  • Pass the RPSGT credentialing exam

Dr. Patel has completed all of the steps listed above, which has allowed him to receive the certification of RPSGT! Dr. Patel is honored to have received this certification and to be the second dentist in the country to receive such an honor.
