Tuesday Courses
Vr601 - Dental Sleep Medicine: A Required Course (January Virtual)
Time: 12 - 1 PM
Room: ,
Type: Virtual    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Every practicing dentist must have a working knowledge of Sleep Related Breathing Disorders (SRBD) even if he or she never intends to treat OSA patients. In October 2017, the American Dental Association (ADA) adopted a policy on dentistry’s role in treating SRBD including obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Most dentists are not aware that they are now under a legal obligation to screen all of their patients for SRBD as they have been recognized as potentially serious medical conditions. In this webinar we will discuss why every dentist must be prepared to recognize patients who are dangerously sleepy and how to address that risk. 

 

Attendees will:

Be introduced to the field of dental sleep medicine
Understand the serious nature of Sleep Related Breathing Disorders
Understand the legal ramifications of the ADA policy statement on Sleep Related Breathing Disorders
Be able to assess a patient’s risk for Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders as part of a comprehensive medical and dental history and refer affected patients to the appropriate physicians
