2019 Winter Conference - Dental Sleep Medicine: Beyond First Impressions


Credits: None available.

The American Dental Association, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine have published guidelines and policies that describe the role and responsibilities of dentists in managing sleep disordered breathing (SDB). Dental providers who wish to treat such patients in their practices should be knowledgeable about these recommendations and recognize that their responsibilities go beyond simply taking impressions and delivering an oral appliance. Orthodontists have skills that are particularly suited to managing patients with SDB.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how dentists collaborate with their physician colleagues to manage patients with sleep disordered breathing (SDB).
  • Describe the responsibilities of dentists in managing SDB in patients.
  • Summarize differences in dentists' role in managing patients with SDB as described by the American Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

  • Evaluate the interactive role the orthodontist can play with the patient's physician.
