In partnership with SomnoMed®, OrthoArt Lab presents the second certification course SomnoMed® Academy in Romania.
The goal of the SomnoMed® Dental Sleep Medicine Continuing Education program is to provide dental sleep medicine protocols for general dentists and support staff wishing to further their knowledge and understanding in treating patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
The need for dentists to take up an important role in the identification and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), has never been higher. OSA is a condition that affects the normal breathing by obstructing the upper airway. One of the cardinal symptoms of OSA is snoring, and dentists and dental hygienists can therefore potentially be the first line caretakers in the identification of OSA. During this course, we will explore screening options to identify OSA patients in your practice, oral signs and symptoms, the referral process, how oral appliances work, and device options.
Without collaborative relationships with physicians, dentists’ efforts to provide an acceptable standard of care are however compromised. For example, to fit an oral appliance without a proper medical evaluation gives patients a false sense of security, deterring them from pursuing a comprehensive exam and sleep study with a licensed sleep physician. Partnerships between qualified dentists and sleep physicians are not only key for optimal patient care; they also increase the horizon of a dentist’s dental sleep medicine practice.
During this course, we will cover how dentists can bridge the treatment gap to promote more sleep physician referrals and then to work as an interdisciplinary team to treat your patient’s sleep breathing disorders, like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), with oral appliance therapy (OAT).
