The Sleep Education Consortium is pleased to present the Sleep Education Consortium Conference:

INTEGRATING THE GROWING ROLE OF THE DENTIST INTO THE MEDICAL TREATMENT TEAM FOR SLEEP DISORDERS

ABOUT CONFERENCE

This conference architects the growing link between dentistry and sleep medicine, and it will become clear how the dentist can play a larger role in the overall health of patients.
The Houston, Sleep Education Consortium presents a unique opportunity to learn about the dentists’ role in sleep disorders treatment (we don’t just treat “a” disorder).

In an effort to provide the best educational experience the conference provides lectures specifically designed to address the educational needs of the D.D.S., and the second day of lectures is open to all health care professionals and has a broader range of sleep related lecture topics.
By addressing the patients’ questions regarding sleep issues, the dentist and support staff can be grounded in the broader aspect of sleep disorders on a basic level. The conference will allow the dentist and support staff to become familiar with a multitude of sleep problems, and they can be more responsive to questions patients may ask as the dentist screens for sleep disorders within their practice. The educational methods will include lectures, Q&A and panel discussion.


GAIN THE KNOWLEDGE YOU NEED

to address your patient’s sleep concerns in a three day comprehensive course tailored to provide dental professionals with the essentials to build their dental practice in this evolving area of dentistry.

This course establishes the framework for enhancing collaboration between dental and medical professionals, using didactic and clinical educational methods, in the diagnosis and management of patients with sleep disorders. It will become clear how the dentist can play a large role in the overall health of these patients.

During this three-day, comprehensive course, the dentist will gain the knowledge needed to address patients’ sleep concerns. Dentists and staff attending this conference will become educated on the broad spectrum of sleep disorders on a basic-level and learn, in a more detailed fashion, about sleep-related breathing disorders. The dentist will gain knowledge that will help when screening for sleep disorders or providing guidance to patients who need proper medical care, by physician colleagues, for sleep disturbances.

The conference will offer hands-on experience to practice taking a bite record, perform an airway exam and in making a morning repositioner. This course will provide dental professionals with a pathway for building this aspect of their dental practice while functioning within accepted medical standards.
