The Sleep Education Consortium is pleased to present the Annual Sleep Education Consortium Conference:
The Growing Role of the Dentist in Sleep Disorders Medicine: Integrating the Dentist into the Medical Treatment Team
April 15 & 16, 2016 at the Denton A. Cooley, MD and Ralph C. Cooley, DDS University Life Center, 7440 Cambridge Street, Houston, TX 77054
Gain the knowledge you need to address your patient's sleep concerns in a two day comprehensive course tailored to provide Dental Professionals with the essentials to build their dental practice in this evolving area of dentistry.
This conference architects the growing link between dentistry and sleep medicine, and it will become clear how the dentist can play a larger role in the overall health of patients.
The Houston, Sleep Education Consortium presents a unique opportunity to learn about the dentists' role in sleep disorders treatment (we don't just treat "a" disorder).
In an effort to provide the best educational experience the conference dedicates one day of lectures specifically designed to address the educational needs of the D.D.S., and the second day of lectures has a Break Out Session for the dental support staff. Also, the second day is open to all health care professionals and has a broader range of sleep related lecture topics. Registration is available for the first day alone or both days (highly recommended).
By addressing the patients' questions regarding sleep issues, the dentist and support staff can be grounded in the broader aspect of sleep disorders on a basic level. Attending both days of the conference will allow the dentist and support staff to become familiar with a multitude of sleep problems, and they can be more responsive to questions patients may ask as the dentist screens for sleep disorders within their practice. The educational methods will include lectures, Q&A and panel discussion.
This course meets the lecture and clinical requirements of RULE §108.12 Dental Treatment of Sleep Disorders adopted by the TSBDE on June 11, 2014.
