The 2-day course teaches dental professionals how to treat at-risk sleep apnea patients, who also suffer from Alzheimer’s, hypertension, diabetes, and more, with confidence.
Lamberg Seminars Pathway to Excellence will host a course on Airway Dysfunction and Sleep Disordered Breathing, from Friday, May 1 thru Saturday, May 2, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Northport Yacht Club, Northport, NY.
Airway management has become an important part of general dentistry and the orthodontics profession. In addition, this course will reveal the non-anatomic contributions that are linked to sleep apnea, including stroke, Alzheimer’s, heart attack, hypertension, high blood pressure, GERD, excessive daytime sleepiness, diabetes, and dementia.
The average dental professional sees over 400 patients with a high risk of suffering from life-threatening sleep apnea, and dental professionals are often the first line of defense in screening and treating these patients. During the 2-day course, practitioners will learn to treat these patients with confidence.
“By providing relevant education, clinical experience, and administrative templates, our goal is to prepare you to work with our medical colleagues to treat , and in some cases prevent, obstructive sleep apnea and manage its impact on our healthcare system and society,” says Steve Lamberg, DDS.
The event is sponsored by SML, which offers educational opportunities to dental professionals to enhance the quality of care provided to patients, significantly expand practitioners’ skill range, and dramatically increase earning potential.
Topics that will be covered in the course include terminology, pathophysiology, mechanism, action of oral appliances, bite records, polysomnograph reports, office protocol/software, multidisciplinary approach, case studies, marketing skills, airway exam illustration, maximizing Insurance, and more.
Dentists, administrative staff, and clinical assistants will experience a team learning environment, because the entire staff is the key to implementation. Course materials, which are constantly updated as new science is published, include lecture, dental sleep medicine implementation toolkit, discounts on oral appliances, breakfast and lunch each day, and a Friday cocktail reception with mystery speaker.
