2019 Winter Conference - Another Brick in the Wall: Incorporating Sleep into Your Orthodontic Practice

Credits: None available.

While orthodontistists are uniquely poised to incorportate sleep into orthodontic practices, there are signficant challenges in actually doing so. The orthodontist will need to understand the challenges and discern to what capacity they will incorporate sleep into the practice. From simple screening to more advanced complex case management, building of a sleep practice will come with numerous challenges. Creating a medical practice within your orthodontic office can be rewarding, but there is much that can upset the apple cart.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and understand several challenges to incorporating sleep medicine in an orthodontic practice.
  • Evaluate the interactive role the orthodontist can play with the patient's physician.
  • Comprehend that success in case management of each sleep patient may be defined differently based on case presentation and the fluid nature of sleep disordered breathing.
