Description

Mastering Sleep Event!

Do you have insomnia, wake frequently throughout the night or wake too early?
The cause of your sleep issues may not be what you think it is!

Did you know that poor sleep not only makes us grumpy, hungry and lethargic, but it can also be deadly? A study by researchers in Australia showed that being awake for 18 hours produced an impairment equal to a blood alcohol concentration of .05, and .10 after 24 hours. In most states, .08 is considered legally drunk.3 Consider that over 73% of Americans drive to and from work, that is a lot of people on the road potentially impaired from poor sleep. At the Mastering Sleep Event, you will learn the latest in sleep research and treatment.

For instance, did you know that females have more problems with sleep?

Do you have PMS, mood swings, anxiety, depression or have been diagnosed with ADD?
Did you have braces as a child?
Do you grind your teeth or suffer from TMJ or other jaw pain?

All of these conditions may point to potential other causes issues with your sleep. But, sleep is not just about increasing melatonin and reducing screen time! Your hormones, neurotransmitters, gut health and even your dental health may be the cause of your sleep issues. Join Betty Murray and Dr. Becky Coats for a lively and insightful educational event.

Mastering Sleep EvntAbout Becky Coats, DDS, MAGD, LVIF, FIDIA, FAACP

After 18 years of practicing dentistry and thousands of hours of continuing education, a recurring factor present for many of her patients was their experience with a breakdown of dentistry and chronic pain.

Dr. Coat’s studies have given her the resources to understand how muscles, TMJ position, posture, airway, and the way teeth bite all go together like a gear system. That was the connection to understand why this was happening to these patients! The “ah-ha” moment!
