This is a two-day course designed to teach the dentist the principles of sleep medicine and the role of the dentist on the sleep medicine team (16 Hours CE credit).Dr. Glassman has become well recognized not only for his experience in dental sleep medicine, but for his unique teaching style that makes learning this entirely new subject matter exciting and enjoyable. The course is appropriate for the dentist AND his staff. This no nonsense approach to dental sleep medicine minus all the dental myths that are often associated with it, leads to the potential to begin therapy without the purchase of ANY irrelevant “instrumentation” that is often associated with entrance into this critical field.Participants should be able to return to their offices fully equipped to begin to add sleep dentistry to their practices. All aspects of oral appliance therapy, handling of side effects, as well as the basics of sleep medicine including sleep architecture, snoring, UARS, apnea, and polysomnias, will be reviewed. A hands-on portion bite registration techniques as well as appliance insertion is included. An additional office-viewing day is available at a nominal fee.There is an entire section on occlusion and bruxism, a sleep movement disorder. This allows us to put dental sleep medicine and the possible side effects in proper perspective as the crucial risk/benefit decision-making is made with our patients. It will also help you treat your patients with joint dysfunction and pain as a result of bruxism.
