The interest in Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM) has grown and involves not only oral appliances for Sleep Breathing Disorders (SBD), such as sleep apnea and snoring, but also involves sleep bruxism, orofacial pain including TMD and related medical conditions. The dentist has a major role in the recognition and management of patients with these conditions. In addition the guidelines from the American Dental Association (ADA) indicate that the dentist should be trained to recognize, facilitate the diagnosis of sleep apnea and be well versed in oral appliance therapy.

This course is designed to cover all aspects of sleep medicine and sleep disorders through lectures from various experts. The lectures are designed to review all aspects of sleep that are relative to the practicing dentist and are reinforced with demonstration and hands-on experience in the clinic. This involves the examination process, the process of obtaining a bite registration for fabrication of an oral appliance and the delivery of the oral appliance. The lectures and discussion will involve how the dentist can be a productive and successful participant in the management of sleep disorders, in particular sleep related breathing disorders. In addition, the expanding definition of dental sleep medicine will be explored, as this involves sleep bruxism and orofacial pain.

This course is designed such that the participant will be optimally competent and be considered qualified in the use of oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea and snoring.
