Join the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) for an Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine. This course includes a review of sleep related breathing disorders and the impact of sleep on society. Several sessions address the range of oral appliance therapy and upper airway surgery for obstructive sleep apnea. The course addresses practice issues such as developing a team approach, medico-legal issues and reimbursement. A final portion of Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine is case-based and provides clinical examples of the evaluation and treatments of sleep disorders in a dental practice.

Introduction to Dental Sleep Medicine will be held twice: October 10 – 11, 2009, in New Orleans, La., and November 7 – 8, 2009, in Orlando, Fla. Learn more about the course and register online on the AADSM Web site.
