If you have not done so already, I highly recommend joining me for study clubs and groups. It is important to always be up-to-date with various topics for dental sleep medicine and TMD areas, which is where study club comes into play. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from these groups.
What is Study Club?
Good question. Study club is a way for me to visit your office to further discuss various areas of your dental office that include you and your team. I welcome invitations to your study club and group or as a guest speaker at your office meetings to share some fun learning experiences on an array of topics. It is almost like book club, but without the books. But don’t let that limit you. If you have a book you read or are interested in, then bring it. We can touch base on it and see what it is all about and how it can help with your office.
After all, I recently wrote a book that would be great for you and your office to read together for an enhanced understanding of dental sleep medicine and your patients. The book can be purchased on lulu.com or amazon.com, whichever is your preference. “Freedom from CPAP: Sleep Apnea Hurts, the Cure Doesn’t Have To” is a joint effort by myself and Dr. David Dillard to help improve the understanding of obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Some topics we can discuss in study club might include, but are not limited to:
- Pharmacology in Treating Orofacial Pain/TMD
- Identifying Patients with Suspected Sleep Breathing Disorders
- Fundamentals of Temporomandibular Disorders
- Oral Appliance Therapy in the Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
- Understanding Various Common Facial Pain in a General Dentistry Practice
- What is TMD?
- Link between TMD, Sleep Bruxism & Sleep Disordered Breathing
- Understanding Bruxism
And, if you have a topic in mind and you do not see it listed above, please contact me and we can further discuss your needs! I look forward to potentially working with you and your staff on these topics!
