Full program and speaker details are coming

Why?

The link between oral health and sleep health is becoming more recognised in the fields of dentistry and medicine. This puts dentists at the forefront of recognising the signs or symptoms of sleep disorders such as sleep disordered breathing, obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring.

Obstructive sleep apnoea alone has been linked to a host of health problems including high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems and diabetes in adults. In children, it can lead to the development of learning and behavioural problems if left untreated.

Dentists have the opportunity to recognise the oral manifestations of these conditions in a routine exam. With a sound understanding of dental sleep medicine, they can be involved in both the screening and potential treatment of sleep disordered breathing. This opens the door to fulfilling interdisciplinary collaborations with medical colleagues in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.

Who?

This course is designed for dentists or other oral health professionals who are new to dental sleep medicine, or for more experienced dentists wanting to refresh their knowledge to undertake the Fellow of Dental Sleep Medicine program.
