Dentists from around the world are attending dental continuing education courses focusing on the dental treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Dental sleep medicine education company, Sleep Group Solutions has instructed thousands of dentists on implementing a proper sleep protocol through their two-day, 16-CE program. The SGS Complete Sleep Protocol program is coming to Denver, Colorado on October 18-19 with Dr. Marty Lipsey, at the Embassy Suites Downtown Convention Center.
While an estimated 80 Million people remain undiagnosed with OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), it's assumed more physicians would increase OSA screenings and treatment options for symptomatic patients.
