Getting started is remarkably easy and the beneficial role you play in this field is not only valuable to your patients, but also to sleep physicians who cannot find a local dentist informed well enough on the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing.
The first step is education. Sleep Optima’s education and training program is designed to enable dentists to become certified in dental sleep medicine with easy online courses. Courses are also offered to provide continuing education credit, as well as, training for the entire staff.
Another essential resource as you begin is the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). The AADSM is a professional non-profit society dedicated to the practice of dental sleep medicine. The academy promotes research and provides educational resources to dentists focused on the management of sleep-related breathing disorders including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, with oral appliance therapy (OAT) and upper airway surgery.
The AASM, established in 1975, sets standards and promotes excellence in health care, education and research solely dedicated to sleep medicine. The community includes 10,000 physicians, researchers and health care providers along with 1,500 sleep centers nation-wide.
