Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Help Reduce the Number of Undiagnosed Patients by Screening for OSA

Presenter: David Schwartz, DDS

An estimated 54 million adults suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, but 43 million remain undiagnosed. Dentists can help reduce the number of undiagnosed patients by screening for OSA and treating it with oral appliance therapy. During this webinar, Dr. David Schwartz, President of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, will discuss how you and your staff can identify, screen, and treat patients at risk for sleep-related breathing disorders with minimum disruption to your current practice. Practitioners will be informed of ADA and AADSM guidelines for screening and learn about the benefits of incorporating dental sleep medicine into a new or existing dental practice. Dr. Schwartz will also discuss what training is necessary to provide oral appliance therapy to patients with OSA confidently and effectively.
