Dr. Kristen Donohue, DDS, reviews the SCOPE Institute's Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency Program, sponsored by Nierman Practice Management. The Dental Sleep Medicine Mini Residency is a 4-session, 64 CE Credit program designed to give dental practices the knowledge and guidance to fully incorporate obstructive sleep apnea treatment into their practice. Led by Dr. Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS, and Dr. Terry Bennet, DMD, the mini-residency includes a line-up of physician specialists, including Sleep Physicians, ENT's, and others. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, attendees gain the skills and confidence needed to incorporate dental sleep medicine successfully. Dentists receive 2 sleep apnea appliances and go through the entire experience of the examination, impression and bite registrations, appliance delivery and fitting, and follow-up/calibration exams. The class also has the opportunity to shadow an AASM accredited sleep lab throughout the program. By the end of session 4, the dental practice should be confidently treating obstructive sleep apnea patients, have physician referral networks in place, medical insurance reimbursement implemented, and be ready for various dental sleep medicine accreditation programs.
