SomnoMed has formed a strategic partnership with Burkhart Dental Supply, a privately owned, dental distributor in the United States, with more than 5,000 customers and over 100 sales representatives, predominately on the west coast of the United States.

As part of the expanded partnership, SomnoMed will organize seminars for Burkhart dental customers to become familiar with SomnoDent sleep apnea therapy. These in-person and online seminars will be jointly instructed by accredited sleep physicians and dentists. They will provide Burkhart dental customers with training and certification to then properly utilize SomnoMed’s range of products and services including SomnoDent and the SomnoMed Health Claim Support Line.

"Our partnership with Burkhart Dental is an important development and mutually beneficial,” said Dr Peter Neustadt, executive chairman of SomnoMed. "Working with Burkhart will help us directly reach their dental customers who are interested in learning more about dental sleep medicine and want to know how they can effectively incorporate our treatment modality SomnoDent into their practices.”
