In America alone, over 18 million people suffer from sleep apnea. And the worst part is that many of these people are not diagnosed and do not seek treatment. By pursuing a dental sleep medicine education, you are taking the first step in helping your patients with not only their oral health care, but overall health as well. Once you have completed your training, it is important to get your dental team on board, too.
By incorporating dental sleep medicine into your practice, you can help the millions of Americans suffering from sleep apnea that many not even realize it. By educating your dental team, you can successfully implement Dental Sleep Medicine into your practice.
