Simplifying Dental Sleep Medicine: Helping Sleepy Patients Now

Featuring Steve Carstensen, DDS

4 CE Credits

Your patients present to your office with dental problems they expect you to address, but many have other health issues that can affect your treatment plan or present a significant risk. Learn how to help your patients in unexpected ways, by understanding sleep, breathing, quality of life and other health conditions related to how they breathe at night and during the day. This novel approach to dental health sets you apart from dental teams that focus only on teeth, TMJ, and gums. A proven protocol has been developed to allow the dentist to immediately address these health concerns discovered in a dental visit. Dentists can begin to improve their patients’ health while at the same time addressing dental needs and working with other medical providers for the bigger picture.

At the end of this talk, participants will be able to:
• Describe basic sleep related breathing disorders and how they affect oral health
• Connect patient reported and dentist-observed signs and symptoms to breathing problems
• Present a plan of action to patients to address their short and long term health concerns
• Discuss a new way of differentiating their dental office with their team and marketing partners

• Limited to 50 attendees

• This in-person course is open to OCDS member dentists only

• Every member must register themselves individually

• Membership will be verified
