Airway Management has formed the [removed]Dental Institute of Sleep Medicine[/removed] for the purpose of training dental practitioners in the use of TAP oral appliance therapy for sleep disordered breathing. Upcoming courses are sponsored by TAP, VirtuOx, and Patterson Dental.

All courses are in an interactive workshop format with didactic presentations, hands-on exercises, and ample time for questions and answers. An introductory 1-day course, titled "Jump Start Your Practice," and an intermediate 1-day course, titled "Clinical Mastery," are being held on successive days at multiple Patterson Dental branches around the United States. A 3-day "Advanced Comprehensive Therapy" course is being held monthly at Airway Management in Dallas, Tex.
