Henry Schein® Orthodontics, Carlsbad, Calif, has announced fall 2014 course dates for an educational program centered around obstructive sleep apnea, a leading topic in the orthodontic industry today.

Speakers Lou Chmura, DDS, and David Paquette, DDS, will provide orthodontists and staff with an understanding of the physiology of sleep apnea and the current diagnostic and treatment options, as well as a new orthodontic approach and its protocols.

The orthodontic approach is intended to provide patients with immediate relief from obstructive sleep apnea, as well as changes to the airway that may address an underlying cause. This program includes a complete, evidence-based system to implement into a practice now.

The course this year will take place in Washington, DC, from September 12 to 13, and in Las Vegas from December 5 to 6.
