Interestingly enough, dentists are among the small group of practitioners stepping up, to take on the sleepy killer, OSA. Dental sleep medicine expert, Dr. Damian Blum, from Ellicott City, MD, lectures for SGS and is featured in this months SGS Instructor spotlight. “For the last several years my main focus has been on DSM and sleep disorders.” says Dr. Blum. “As a public speaker, my goal is to spread the news about sleep apnea.” Hear more about Dr. Blum and the SGS lectures he leads in his one-on-one interview for this month’s instructor spotlight.
Dr. Anjoo Ely, from Nova, MI, is also featured in this months spotlight, and is an expert in the field of DSM. “The audience at my seminars will hopefully be able to incorporate an entire DSM protocol.” Dr. Ely teaches the SGS protocol, which begins from the ground up, so attendees can learn how to screen and treat patients, how to work with physicians, and how to deliver appliances as well as follow-up with cases.
