Dentists and dental team members seeking to learn more about dental sleep medicine can register for an Oct. 2-3 ADA CE Live course at ADA Headquarters in Chicago.
Dr. Steve Carstensen, a diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, will lead the CE course, Dental Sleep Medicine for the General Dental Team.
The first day covers an overview of sleep-disordered breathing and what the dental team can do to have an impact on patient health. The course covers the basics of sleep, dental appliances, how to work with sleep physicians to raise awareness and touches on medical insurance interaction.
The second day includes a hands-on workshop where those attending will be given rationale behind choosing appliances for various types of patients; experience taking records for making excellent appliances; see a demo of common modifications that address frequent patient complaints; see what to look for on sleep reports; and take home a semi-custom temporary sleep appliance of their own.
Attendees receive 11 hours of CE credits. The cost of the course is $495 for members; $595 nonmembers; $395 per dental team member.
