This course is intended to aid in the establishment and expansion of dental sleep medicine in your clinical dental practice. 

The course will be have a clinical focus when addressing patient selection, treatment options, oral appliance selection, record taking, titration and long term follow up of oral appliance patients. The course includes a review of normal sleep and the role of sleep in maintaining health. An update will be given on the new recommendations for sleep duration as well as the impact of sleep disorders on the individual and society. The pathophysiology of sleep disordered breathing and the latest finding on the comorbidities of snoring and sleep apnea will be addressed.
