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 interactive course is designed to educate you on dental sleep medicine and how you can improve your patients’ overall health and quality of life while building your practice.
