An Institute of Medicine report found that an estimated 50-70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders, including sleep apnea. Through intense CE training programs, dentists are quickly becoming the small group of practitioners stepping up, to take on the dangerous bedside killer, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Dental sleep medicine expert Dr. Marty Lipsey lectures with Sleep Group Solutions, and instructs fellow dentists how to implement a proper sleep protocol, structured around evidence-based knowledge. Dr. Lipsey’s upcoming Dental Sleep Medicine lecture with Sleep Group Solutions will be on January 10-11 in San Francisco, California at the Hilton San Francisco Bayfront.
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. Modesto Dentist and Dental Sleep Medicine expert Dr. Marty Lipsey is no stranger to airway issues or Dental Sleep Medicine protocols. Creating Dental Sleep Med Systems, which provides systems and solutions for insurance and billing in a Dental Sleep Medicine practice, Dr. Lipsey has a complete understanding of Sleep, and provides a superior, in-depth lecture experience. “I always keep in mind that everyone sitting in the audience wants to learn systems that they can bring back and easily implement in their practices. We not only do that on a clinical level, but I lay out a step by step financial and medical insurance strategy that everyone can follow.” says Dr. Lipsey on his presentation style. “We've done this in our own practices for 8 to 9 years and can teach other teams so they don't have to reinvent the wheel.” Dr. Lipsey will present numerous case reviews, discuss insurance and billing, technology, oral appliances, and home sleep testing.
Common symptoms and signs of OSA include acid reflux, irritability, morning headaches, high blood pressure, hypertension, scalloped tongue, and daytime fatigue. Identifying these correlations and seeking testing and treatment has proven to be life saving. “I am an advocate for sleep health awareness because we have seen so many patients in so many practices that desperately need this treatment." mentions Dr. Marty Lipsey, “By the end of the lecture, you may be an advocate, too!”
