A comprehensive, clinically-focused and evidence-based education program that will provide dentists with the necessary training and skills they need to provide oral appliance therapy to patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Upon completion of the program, dentists will have the competence and confidence to provide oral appliance therapy and build relationships with patients, physicians, and payers.
This course is limited to licensed dentists. The program consists of three in-person courses, each lasting two and one-half days. All courses will be comprised of lectures followed by discussion and will include self-instructional activities prior to each course. Mastery I will also include faculty demonstrations. The courses may be purchased individually or together as a bundle.
Dentists who currently hold the Qualified Dentist designation and are interested in pursuing ABDSM certification must register for Mastery I, II, and III. Successful completion of the Mastery Program and eligibility for the ABDSM Certification Examination includes two Guided Patient Cases. Dentists interested in obtaining Diplomate status via the Mastery Program should begin to screen for patients who are candidates for Oral Appliance Therapy that could fulfill this requirement.
