Date & Time
Saturday, August 27, 2022, 11:15 AM - 12:30 PM
Erin Elliott, DDS

This lecture is based on real-life day to day practice and implemented techniques that have led to successful results with OSA therapy.  Attention is given to the four steps to successful implementation – Awareness, Diagnosis, Financials, Treatment. You will leave this lecture with confidence to understand: 

  • Overview of what sleep apnea is and the different types
  • Overview of health consequences of untreated sleep apnea
  • Creating awareness in the hygiene department
  • How to create a program in your general dentist practice

Did you know that dentists play a key role in treating sleep apnea?  Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, stroke, heart conditions and diabetes.  Did you know there are hundreds of undiagnosed patients in your practice suffering from sleep apnea?  Dentists have a unique opportunity to detect and treat this debilitating condition in patients who may never have sought help.  This webinar is designed as an overview on dental sleep medicine and how you can improve your patients’ overall health and quality of life while building your practice.
