“Which appliance should I use” – the most common question asked by new dentists starting with sleep apnea. The correct answer is: There is no magic appliance. Unlike many other courses out there, Sleep Group Solutions and our instructors do not own, promote, or have any involvement with just one appliance. What that means is that you will get an un-biased opinion of many of the top appliances available to dentists and the pro’s and con’s of each one.
NEW for 2009 – through SGS business relationship we have contacts with hundreds of sleep labs across the US. Many of our seminars will introduce representatives from these sleep labs and give attendees an opportunity to immediately begin working with a sleep diagnostic center in their area.
