Appliance Therapy for Sleep Breathing Disorders – And More
This immersive experience is more like a retreat than a class. Focus on expanding your knowledge and service for sleep-related breathing disorders with world-class experts over five days and you’ll return ready to make a difference in your practice and help your patients become healthier.
We begin with understanding each other – why do you want to expand your dental training to include airway services? Who are these faculty and what can they do for you? The experts you will be sharing time with include dentists with decades of experience, a sleep physician dedicated to collaborative care, as well as a maxillofacial surgeon, myofunctional therapist, equipment and team trainers, and even a maxillofacial radiologist. There is no question you might have that can’t be answered by your faculty – and that is only available at Pankey!
When Pankey Airway Therapy participants return to practice, they will be able to:
- An overview of normal human sleep and its systemic consequences.
- Lead their team to create new office systems to include airway services in their workflow
- Understand how to recognize patients with airway problems and move them towards diagnosis
- Consider the 3D anatomy of the upper airway and treatment of structure problems
- Collaborate with key health care providers in their community
- See how treating airway is not just a matter of oral appliance therapy, but other treatment strategies are sometimes necessary for individual patients
- Talk with families about early life therapy as a preventive strategy
- Discuss their individual experiences with diagnostic tests, temporary and custom oral appliances.
