Credits: 7

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch


Course Description:

Of the next three patients that walk thru your doors, one will be a victim of Sleep Apnea…………… will YOU be able to identify and treat that patient?

Today’s “Hot Button”, Dental Sleep Medicine will make YOU stand out, be sought out and become your uniqueness to serve the needs of 34% of your existing patients and… to attract many new patients.

You will be able to offer not only your EXCELLENCE but also a DIFFERENCE.  In this sluggish economy, where there is a perception of “financial doom”, dental consumers have a tight hold on their wallets; reports of dental service acceptance show a concerning drop.

Your First Class Service and Patient Engagement are expected as basic “givens”. But what is your clinical niche?

Are YOU the dental practice they must go to? Are you the only practice around that is the “Snooze Dentist”, the “Snore Dentist”? Are you the “Sleep Dysfunction Dentist”?


Remember how it was about 20 years ago when teeth whitening (aka “bleaching”) was the “new kid on the block”- THE “HOT BUTTON”? If you had an “in-office” Bright Smile or Zoom machine, you could schedule an operatory all day long with patients from near and far. After that we had the “porcelain age of dentistry”, when the media made patients very image-conscious for “smile enhancements” at any cost while the public was more confident in the future of the economy . Teeth whitening is now offered in nearly every practice, and in most as a discounted loss leader. Cosmetic crowns and veneers are now a lower patient priority.  Implants were the next rage in dental attractions. Today most dental practices are offering implants.

Dental Sleep Medicine is where Teeth Whitening was 20 years ago. It is the “hot button” where Implant Dentistry was 10 years ago. Strike while the iron is hot. Brand yourself as the “Sleep Dysfunction Dentist”
