Dr. Steven Carstensen - Airway Therapy for the General Dental Team  
 

Program Synopsis/Description:
This is an overview of sleep disordered breathing and what the dental team can do to impact the health of their patients.  We cover basics of sleep, dental appliances, how to work with sleep physicians to market your service, and touch on medical insurance interaction. For those offices currently providing sleep appliances, we discuss complications, titration and follow-up testing, dig a bit deeper into marketing and team development.  We discuss more complex sleep disorders they might be encountering. 

Learning Objectives: 
At the conclusion of this lecture attendees will be able to: 

  • Describe sleep physiology, both what is normal and what is abnormal
  • Illustrate to their patients the medical consequences of untreated SDB
  • Apply basic sleep appliance therapy to selected patients
  • Communicate with sleep physicians about collaborative care
  • Develop a proper history of complications and create a treatment plan
  • Create a system for calibration of the patient’s airway using portable monitors

Dr. Steven Carstensen  - Pediatric Airway Therapy 2020 

Program Synopsis/Description:
Children are not just little adults and cannot be identified, diagnosed, treated, or followed the same as our adult patients with sleep related breathing disorders.  We must reframe our entire thought process and rethink our clinical systems to help them grow to their maximum potential.  In this talk, we’ll discuss how to identify children at risk from birth to adolescence, how to communicate to families and other providers, what treatments are possible and when, and how to follow these children to ensure their path to health.

Learning Objectives: 
At the conclusion of this lecture attendees will be able to:

  • Ask the right questions from families to identify children at risk for SRBD
  • Discuss with families and other providers the various age-appropriate treatment options
  • Outline how to begin habit correction therapy as soon as possible
  • Devise a follow-up plan to make sure kids are on a healthy growth plan
