This very exciting addition to the Course Series offered by Drs. Glassman and Viviano and the Sleep Disorders Dentistry Learning Centre provides an opportunity to the dentist who wants to continue his learning experience in dental sleep medicine.

THIS IS A UNIQUE COURSE. THE SMALL CLASS SIZE ALLOWS FOR IN DEPTH INTERACTIVE DISCUSSIONS INCLUDING CASE PRESENTATIONS — PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF PATIENT MANAGEMENT IN SLEEP AND WITH CO-MORBIDITY MANAGEMENT, AND AN HONEST LOOK AT OCCLUSION AND DEALING WITH OCCLUSAL CHANGES.

 

This is a two-day advanced course given once or twice a year.  There will be a short review of sleep medicine principles, as well as a summary of new developments in sleep medicine, followed by an intricate and intense section on practice management, dealing with individual stumbling blocks that each attendee may have encountered.  This section will address internal practice management and staff issues, as well as the difficulties of coordinating care with our medical colleagues.   There will be an “implementation” section during which the practice of dental sleep medicine will be dissected from the initial visit to the insertion of appliances, including the use of ambulatory studies to guide titration.  This advanced course delves into handling untoward side effects including muscle, joint and ligament insertion injuries, as well as occlusal and mandibular changes .  Diagnosis, management and prevention of these untoward effects will be covered in detail. Presentations of complicated cases that involve side effects or difficult resolutions well be presented, and each attendee is invited to bring a case (or cases) to review. There is an in-depth section on bruxism and parafunctional control, as well a section on the relationship between pain and sleep. There will be an extensive review of current literature and a section on how to read and interpret ambulatory studies.

This course serves as an excellent “refresher course” and then probes more deeply into the practice of Dental Sleep Medicine.  This is also an excellent to keep up with the current literature and advances in sleep medicine.

Note: This course is only recommended for very motivated staff members who have had some previous dental sleep education.  This course is only recommended for those practitioners who are already practicing dental sleep medicine.
