Dentistry is an ever-evolving field, and staying ahead of the curve is crucial for providing top-notch patient care. Ben-Pat Institute, renowned for its commitment to excellence in dental education, is offering two upcoming courses that promise to enhance your skills and broaden your expertise.

Integrate dental sleep medicine in your practice

The “Integrating DSM into Your Practice” course, offered by the Ben Pat Institute, is a comprehensive program designed to help dentists seamlessly incorporate Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM) into their practices. 

There are two sessions, both held in Portland, Oregon. The first session begins September 27 with the second one on November 1. This course covers essential aspects of DSM, including the diagnosis and management of sleep-related breathing disorders. 

Attendees will learn how to identify patients with sleep apnea, utilize advanced diagnostic tools, and implement effective treatment plans. The course features hands-on workshops, interactive case studies, and expert-led discussions to ensure participants gain practical skills and confidence in treating sleep disorders. 

By integrating DSM into your practice, you can enhance patient care, improve overall health outcomes, and expand your service offerings, ultimately leading to increased patient satisfaction and practice growth.

Maxi-residency in craniofacial pain, dental sleep medicine

Dentists and their teams are uniquely positioned to screen for sleep apnea and craniofacial pain. Why? Because they are trained to evaluate the whole patient. With dentists seeing patients at least twice a year, they can identify traits, characteristics, and behaviors that may predispose patients to various systemic conditions. It is time to consider screening for sleep apnea and craniofacial pain in your dental practice.

Globally, about 1 billion people aged 30 to 69 suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The prevalence of OSA continues to rise worldwide, driven largely by an increase in obesity, a major risk factor for sleep apnea.

Additionally, craniofacial pain affects roughly 10% of the adult population, with women being twice as likely to be affected as men. It is one of the most common causes of chronic pain after back, neck, and knee pain. While acute craniofacial pain is often tooth-related, chronic craniofacial pain is usually linked to musculoskeletal disorders such as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs).

OSA and craniofacial pain are significantly impacting individuals worldwide. The prevalence of these conditions indicates a growing need for effective patient care, and dentists are in a unique position to provide it.

As dentists, we are committed to alleviating our patients’ discomfort. To do so effectively, it is essential for dentists to further their education in dental sleep medicine and craniofacial pain, ensuring they can deliver the best possible care.

WIth that, join us for a four part residency on craniofacial pain and dental sleep medicine in Boston. The first two-day session begins September 13.
