London: The Management of Snoring and Sleep Apnoea in Dental Practice
On Saturday 18th October 2014, the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine is holding an introductory course for Dentists and Dental Technicians in London:
The Management of Snoring and Sleep Apnoea in Dental Practice
This course is for those interested in learning more about the rapidly evolving science of dental sleep medicine.
The British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine (BSDSM) was launched at a two-day residential sleep seminar ‘An exploration of Dental Sleep Medicine and the role of the GDP’ in Oxford on Friday 29th – Saturday 30th April 2005.
This relatively new field of therapy has opened to the dental team to help correct a medical problem – sleep-related breathing disorders ranging from benign snoring to severe obstructive sleep apnoea.
Dentists are an important link in the chain. They can often identify abnormal conditions in their patients and screen for medical problems.
The BSDSM intends to help educate practitioner Dentists through clinical meetings that keep leading-edge ideas accessible and establish and maintain appropriate treatment protocol.
