A Turnkey Dental Sleep Medicine Program Teach Dental Offices How to Screen and Treat Snoring and Sleep Apnea
According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 80 million Americans snore. With such a high demand for quality sleep seminars within the dental industry, Dental sleep medicine company, Sleep Group Solutions is pleased to announce the addition of dental sleep medicine courses in Orlando, Boston and Scottsdale.
Dentists across the US are attending dental continuing education courses, which teach dental professionals how to screen and treat snoring and sleep apnea, through Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT). Snoring, along with high blood pressure, hypertension, and daytime fatigue, are signs you may have sleep apnea. Dentists are quickly becoming the first line of defense in treating these patients who snore or have sleep apnea. South Carolina Dentist, Dr. Jeff Horowitz began treating sleep patients in 1996, and says his practice has never been the same. “It all began with our attention to sleep disordered breathing in developing children, and eventually led to an intense interest in sleep disorders in the adult population along with the associated health implications.” says Dr. Jeff Horowitz. The Carolina Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry founder mentions, “It is incredibly rewarding to have such a deliberate impact on our patients’ overall health. We are not just treating a condition, but preventing life-threatening consequences. Our patient’s are forever grateful!” Dentists looking to learn more about treating patients for sleep apnea are invited to attend a seminar with Sleep Group Solutions.
Dr. Jeff Horowitz is an instructor with Sleep Group Solutions, and holds a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, and is a firm believer in continuing education, having earned the prestigious Fellowship Award from the AGD. “Sleep Group Solutions has given me the perfect platform to share my knowledge of sleep medicine with others, so that together we can make a difference for the 80 million Americans battling sleep disordered breathing.”
