More than 18 million Americans are facing a silent battle against sleep breathing disorders (SBD), like sleep apnea, where their dreams aren’t interrupted by nightmares, but rather by an invisible barrier. As a crucial member of the patient’s care team, dental professionals hold the potential to identify, motivate, and inform patients about this covert sleep disturber.

To learn more, join Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS, on April 30 for a webinar on breathing disorders, orofacial pain, sleep apnea and sleep disorders.
