With 2016 right around the corner, what do you have planned for the New Year? For the New Year why not expand your knowledge of craniofacial pain and dental sleep medicine? To help you improve the services your practice has to offer in 2016, there are several lectures available for you to choose from! Take a look:

January 29-30, 2016: ABC – Airway, Bruxism and Craniofacial Pain

Taking place in Jupiter, Florida, Dr. Mayoor Patel will introduce the relationship between the Airway, Bruxism and Craniofacial Pain. By attending this lecture series you will learn how to assess your patients, prioritize and fabricate a treatment plan that provides the best results for all three conditions. It is important to attend this lecture series to:

  • Understand the correlation between sleep apnea, bruxism and craniofacial pain.
  • Screen and identify the underlying cause of these disorders, and treat your patients more effectively.
  • Build a referral network with the medical community and get paid by medical insurance for your services.

February 19-20, 2016: Pinpoint the Pain: TMD and Craniofacial Pain

This lecture series takes place in Jupiter, Florida and helps to provide dentists with an opportunity to understand the neuroanatomical relationship within the cranio-cervical area that can complicate the diagnosis of a simple toothache or other orofacial related pain. Pain referral patterns can render misdiagnosis, potentially leading to unnecessary or ineffective treatment.

March 11-12, 2016: Advancing Your Dental Sleep Medicine Practice

This two day lecture series is the next step in implementing dental sleep medicine. It is an advanced course that empowers dentists and their teams to overcome clinical and administrative obstacles to incorporate sleep apnea therapy into their practice. Taught by credentialed industry leaders, Dr. Patel and other lecturers will utilize unique teaching tools to ensure each dentist in attendance will gain the skills needed to manage challenges that practices may experience when treating obstructive sleep apnea.

March 11-12, 2016: A Hygienist’s Role in Dental Sleep Medicine

Dental Hygienists are in the opportune position to screen general dentistry patients for sleep breathing disorders, which helps to increase the amount of sleep apnea cases organically.  By having your practice’s dental hygienists trained in their role, you can help grow your dental sleep medicine practice from within while you build referral relationships with the sleep community. If your hygienists are not maximizing their effectiveness in screening for OSA, this course is just what they need!
