This course is a call to action for all dental professionals who are dedicated to prevent sleep disordered breathing (SDB) rather than wait to treat the devastating effects it imposes; ADHD, bed wetting, asthma, cardiovascular disease, lower IQ, depression, and other maladies.
With an estimated 22 million Americans suffering from OSA and 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed, dental professionals are called upon to help reverse this crisis. By understanding the root causes of OSA, malocclusion and soft tissue dysfunction, dental professionals can take proactive steps in applying lifesaving protocols to prevent OSA in patients of all ages while also adding a new and timely revenue source.
