Dental Sleep Medicine: The 4 Cornerstones of a Sleep Program
November 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PSTFree
Following the COVID Pandemic, the world is focused on health and wellness. Coupled with the Philips Respironics CPAP Recall, where over 3.4 MILLION CPAPs have been recalled internationally, the world is ready for your dental practice to help with oral appliance therapy.
Recent events aside, in 2017 the American Dental Association said that only dentists can order and maintain an oral appliance to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). They also said dentists should screen for OSA using medical history, subjective complaints, and intra-oral signs.

- Understanding the Foundations
- Screening At-Risk Patients
- Testing At-Risk Patients
- Treating Patients
In this 2-hour course, Chad Wooters will explore these 4 cornerstones of a sleep program and provide a deep dive into systems of how to implement them.
