sleepapnea2Ortho Organizers®, Carlsbad, Calif, has announced new 2014 dates for its educational program focusing on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

The speakers—Lou Chmura, DDS, MS, 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 OSA, as well as changes to the airway that may address an underlying cause. This program is the first of its kind in the orthodontic industry, and includes a complete, evidence-based system to implement into a practice now.

The program will be offered in Atlanta, February 28 to March 1; Scottsdale, Ariz, May 16 and 17; Washington, DC, September 12 to 13; and Las Vegas, December 5 and 6.
