Course Description

Most of us became Pediatric Dentists to help kids.  While removing decay and handling challenging behavior cases are noble, how does saving a child from a life of sleep disordered breathing, inflammatory illnesses and cardiac disease sound? During our time together we will discuss:

Why do kids snore?

What maladies are tied to snoring?

How can we help?

Who else can help?

When and how do we address this in our already busy and successful dental practices?

…….And So Much More!

We will end our day together discussing things that can help you with marketing, leadership, customer service and your team!

Course Objectives:

  1. Catch up on the latest in sleep disordered breathing
  2. Understand how a tongue tie can affect sleep and airway
  3. Recognize signs and symptoms associated with sleep and airway issues
  4. Learn who can help in the collaboration and treatment of sleep and airway issues
  5. Initiate ideas discussed to integrate helping these patients in our practices
  6. Listen and be entertained with proven ideas that help with marketing, customer service, leadership, and teamwork
