SERIES 3

OSA Treatment and Successful Integration 
of Dental Sleep into your Practice

Hands-On, Over-the-Shoulder Live Patient Treatment Course

It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with more than 80% of the moderate and severe cases of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) going undiagnosed. Dentists improve the quality of life for their patients every day. However, treating OSA provides a unique opportunity for dentists to save lives.

Did you know that a significant percentage of TMD patients have an underlying sleep disorder? And a large percentage of sleep disorder patients have TMD symptoms or are prone to them? If you have a successful TMD practice, or are interested in growing that part of your practice, then identifying and treating sleep breathing disorders is essential.

This limited attendance, 2-day, 14 CE credit course, designed for doctor and team, will teach effective techniques to recognize, treat and manage OSA patients; techniques and procedures that you and your team can immediately implement to build a successful sleep medicine practice.  Instructor and leading clinician, Jeffrey Haddad, DDS, will share with you his secrets for success in establishing two successful Sleep/TMD practices with a proven track record of outstanding patient care and financial success. 
It is highly recommended that your team attends this course to support and implement the techniques learned.
