Dental Sleep Medicine CE Course

Join us for our 2015 Dental Sleep Medicine Symposiums

Dental sleep medicine is one of the fastest growing fields in dentistry in response to the demand for treatment by patients suffering from OSA. Estimated to affect 12-18 million Americans, OSA contributes a broad range of serious health consequences including an increased risk of hypertension, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, GERD, cognitive dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and excessive daytime drowsiness.  Learn more about this fast growing area of dentistry with our two symposiums – October 8-9, 2015 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa or October 16, 2015 in Minneapolis, MN.

During the full-day session, John Tucker, DMD, from Erie Dental Sleep Therapy and Tucker Dental Excellence will be going beyond the basics of dental sleep medicine to discuss:

  • The AASM and AADSM Clinical Practice Guideline Update for 2015
  • OSA and the edentulous patient, including implant supported oral appliances
  • Review of new studies on oral appliance efficacy and comparison to CPAP

Rob Suter from OSA University will also be presenting on CPAP basics. In his session dentists and team members will gain intimate knowledge of CPAP and mask therapy.
