Course Title: Sleep Apnea Today- Everything You Should Know by Now (and how to get started on Monday)

Course Description: Obstructive Sleep Apnea is chronic, sometimes life-threatening condition that affects 1 in 5 Americans, of which nearly 85% remain undiagnosed, resulting in a $3.4 billion annual impact on healthcare costs. With numbers that staggering, it isn’t a question If there is sleep apnea in your practice, but HOW do you address it? The landscape of sleep centers, do-it-yourself home sleep units and coordinating a diagnosis from sleep physicians can present a confusing path to navigate. This lecture will discuss how to streamline the identification process, while integrating a team of dental-friendly Board-Certified Sleep Physicians to diagnose and recommend treatment for your patients and how a patient’s medical benefits can be applied. Find out the simple way you can start treating sleep apnea on Monday.

Course Objectives:

Participants will learn:

  • The impact of sleep apnea
  • What is needed to begin treating sleep apnea
  • How to screen your existing patients for apneas with 95% accuracy using intra-oral exams, sleep studies, HST vs PSG (when and when to refer)
  • How to increase case acceptance in existing patients for screenings and treatment
  • How to market this service for new patients
  • How streamline the entire process and get staff on board
  • How to work with a Certified Sleep Doctor to create a stream of patients for treatment
  • How to deal with medical insurance to pay for treatment, including Medicare

OPTION 1: Starting at $900

Registration to two-day lecture.


OPTION 2:  Starting at $1900

Two-day lecture plus an incredible opportunity for you to experience the whole process for yourself as a patient! Once you register for this course, a Home Study Test will be sent to you from Awaken2Sleep.com with instructions on how to apply the device and get the appropriate test results, much like your patients could on Monday right after the course. You will also receive instructions on sending impressions to Burbank Dental Lab with an appropriate bite registration. An appliance will be fabricated that you will deliver to yourself on day 2 of the course and make the appropriate adjustments. Furthermore, pending approval from the city of Los Angeles, each participant will have a Cone Beam image taken at maximum intercuspation, and another scan with the appliance placed intra-orally to assess the position of the condyle and assess the changes in airway patency
