The Madow Brothers Are Changing
The World of Sleep Dentistry
Sleep Dentistry Made Simple!
If you are interested in growing your practice,
this is the course you have been waiting for!
You Will Learn:
✓ Why treating sleep apnea could be the best “hidden income producer” of your career!
✓ Why you don’t need to get involved in the medical insurance maze to be properly reimbursed (and paid well)!
✓ How to eliminate all of the roadblocks (referring to physicians, sleep clinic studies, etc.) that you may have heard about!
✓ An easy technique to use CPAP failures to your advantage!
✓ Which appliances work best for which patients – demystified!
✓ One phrase to say that will have your patients begging to refer their spouses or partners!
✓ Incredibly cost-effective marketing that fills your schedule!
✓ How to pull sleep patients right from your own practice with one simple question!
✓ And so much more!
Of course we are all looking for ways to grow our practices, but too often we chase a “Magic Bullet” that involves expensive equipment, difficult clinical techniques, taking courses to learn services that patients don’t really need or want, and a big lease payment on hardware that is collecting dust.
Forget all of that stuff. It is time to start treating something that:
- Impacts over 50 million American adults
- Can easily and predictably be done in your dental practice
- Negates the need for new patients – they are waiting for you right in your own office
- Is undiagnosed 80% of the time
- Can save lives and seriously grow your practice
But before you say that treating sleep apnea, snoring, and sleep disorders is “not for me!” –please keep reading!
Up until now (just like orthodontics was twenty years ago), treating sleep apnea and snoring has been mysterious, difficult to navigate, and frustrating. It sounded good on the outside, but in reality it just didn’t work out.
Well, that’s all about to change with
You see, treating sleep apnea patients in your practice doesn’t have to be mysterious and unpredictable. It doesn’t have to cause you stress.
This brand new full two-day course guides you easily and logically from A to Z. There is nothing else like this in dentistry!
In “Sleep Dentistry Made Simple” you will learn:
- A foolproof way to submit for medical insurance reimbursement!
- How to keep the patient in your practice without sending them to a sleep clinic or physician!
- A five-question test to see if your patient may be a candidate for treatment!
- Incredible marketing ideas to keep the new patients coming!
- What to say to patients to generate tons of referrals!
- And much more!!
Actually, there is so much more! When you leave “Sleep Dentistry Made Simple,” you will be able to start treating patients the very next day!
Okay – time to get out your calculator!
It is estimated that at least 25% of American adults have some form of sleep apnea. 80% are undiagnosed, and of those that ARE diagnosed and treated, over half cannot tolerate their CPAP!
How many patients do you see each day? The typical fee for a sleep apnea case is well over $2000; in many cases much more!! It’s frequently covered by insurance. Are you doing the math here?
But even better than the financial rewards, treating sleep apnea saves lives (and marriages!). This condition leads to an increase in heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, motor vehicle accidents, and decreased productivity at work or school. Seeing a patient with renewed energy, better health, and mental clarity is an amazing thing!! As dentists, we are on the front lines of sleep apnea prevention!
“Sleep Dentistry Made Simple” is a two-day hands-on course designed to fully educate as well as share every single secret with you. Unfortunately, that’s where the other courses leave you short changed.
They leave you puzzled.
You don’t know where to go next.
You will learn the causes of sleep apnea, how to easily screen patients for the disease, the best treatment modalities, and how to properly and accurately prescribe and adjust appliances. You’ll be confident and ready to begin!
So what do you think? Are you ready to make sleep dentistry a huge part of your practice? Do you want to provide a highly needed (and profitable!) service that will set you apart from the rest? Would you like to have sleep dentistry truly demystified?
it’s time to sign up for “Sleep Dentistry Made Simple!”
“Sleep Dentistry Made Simple” will be held in Baltimore, Maryland on August 11th and 12th and the class size will be intentionally kept small. (It’s also a beautiful time to be in Baltimore!)
Please mark your calendar, decide who you are bringing, and sign up now to avoid a sellout!
Two of the best sleep dentistry instructors in the world!
Are you ready to meet them?
