Pankey Breathing & Airway Support: The Dentist’s Role in Treating Sleep Apnea, Reimagined

September 15 @ 8:00 am - September 17 @ 5:00 pm


Over two and a half days, learners will appreciate the vital role they can have in helping improve the health of their patients and their practice. Breathing is fundamental but often overlooked as the source of many health issues; more than just an appliance course, Pankey faculty will help you understand the value good breathing has, 24/7.  Since dentists are the only healthcare providers who can accurately fit and manage oral appliances, learners will be prepared to add that service to their practices and understand how to choose the right device for their patient. Use of sleep testing devices will be thoroughly covered, including leveraging consumer sleep technologies for improved case management. Our faculty includes a lab professional dedicated to helping dentists add this service with minimal workflow disruption and optimal outcome.
