On completion of this course, you should understand:
Without collaborative relationships with physicians, dentists’ efforts to provide an acceptable standard of care are compromised. For example, to fit an oral appliance without a proper medical evaluation gives patients a false sense of diagnosis, deterring them from pursuing a comprehensive exam with a licensed physician. Partnerships between qualified dentists and physicians are not only key for optimal patient care; they also increase the breadth of a dentist’s dental sleep medicine practice. During this webinar, we will cover how dentists can bridge the treatment gap to secure more physician referrals and work as an interdisciplinary team to treat your patient’s sleep breathing disorders, like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), with oral appliance therapy (OAT).
