Whenever wants and needs from the marketplace intersect with the industry’s ability to provide it efficiently and effectively—there is opportunity. People have always wanted an attractive-looking smile, but they are less likely to remove healthy tooth structure to get it. They are also more cost-conscious and concerned about lengthy treatment time. This is why every general dentist should be able to perform short-term orthodontics that are cosmetic, predictable, affordable and fast.

Session Objectives:

Understand why the current marketplace is ripe with opportunity for short-term orthodontics such as cosmetic brackets and wires.

Discover what short-term orthodontics is and what distinguishes this method from aligner therapy and comprehensive orthodontics.

Learn how the patient’s chief cosmetic complaint can be solved efficiently, predictably and profitably with short-term orthodontics.

The Forest Through the Trees: Treatment Options

The difference between the reluctant patient and the thankful patient? How effectively you can minimize their pain.

Thankful patients return and recommend you to their family and friends. Thankful patients improve practices.

Knowing how to identify and treat sleep apnea is one of the most effective ways to solve a common problem, and the negativity it causes: snoring. Snoring disturbs both the sleep of the person snoring and their partner, and in some cases causes them to sleep in separate rooms. More important, snoring could be an indicator of something far more dangerous: Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Identifying the cause of the snoring, and treating it, can be hugely impactful and create happy and grateful patients.

Dr. Erin Elliott, a leading expert in the field of sleep apnea treatment, is here to show you how take your treatment skills to a higher level.

This complimentary webinar will provide you with a nuanced understanding of the diagnostic process for patients with sleep apnea. You will also leave with a strong knowledge of the available treatments: C-PAP, surgery options and oral appliances will all be covered in-depth.

No other installments need be viewed prior to this session.

Course Objectives:

- Pinpoint a solution: Identify the proper treatment option, such as C-PAP and surgery.
- Match the device to the patient: Learn to determine which oral appliance is best for each individual.
- Know what your patients can expect post-referral: Become well-versed in explaining what will be offered at a specialist. (For example, a home sleep test, an overnight sleep test, etc.)
- What if it’s not sleep apnea? Gain an understanding of other potential causes of snoring and how to fix them.

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks: The Dentist’s Role in Sleep Apnea

Physical pain is a strong motivator to visit the dentist. Even the most reluctant patients will book an appointment if the situation becomes dire enough.

But once they visit, what if their treatment went truly above and beyond? What if you helped fix a problem they didn’t even know they had?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a dangerous condition that often goes undiagnosed. The consequences of untreated sleep apnea include snoring, dangerously high blood pressure and even death. These symptoms can and do disrupt patient lives—from making it difficult for a patient who snores to sleep in the same room as their spouse to a simple lack of restful sleep.

What if you could be the clinician that helps tackle these issues?

This complimentary webinar will provide you the ability to do just that. Not only will your skills expand, but your practice will forever change in the eyes of your patients.

You’ll begin by gaining a foundational understanding of sleep apnea including the health consequences of not treating the condition.

Dr. Erin Elliott is a leading expert on sleep apnea treatment. A member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, her work has been life-changing for countless patients.

She will walk you through the steps of how to screen patients such as which dental signs and symptoms to look for as possible indicators of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is not just an adult problem: Pediatric sleep apnea screening and referral instructions will also be discussed.

This session will focus on:

Sleep disordered breathing: What are the consequences?
The cost of waiting: Health sequelae of untreated sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea in dental patients: How to spot it.
What happens next: How to refer a patient to a specialist.
