Articles and Resources
The program also provides access to a range of articles and landmark studies in dental sleep medicine, allowing participants to stay up-to-date with the latest research in the field. This information is designed to help participants make informed decisions about patient care and treatment. The articles and resources can be found in the menu above.
Identify a Patient
To get the most out of the Oral Appliance Therapy program, we recommend that participants identify a patient who they can treat for snoring and/or sleep apnoea. This is because the program is designed to be hands-on and practical, and we believe that participants will benefit greatly from having a patient to work with as they learn. By treating a patient, participants can apply the knowledge and skills they learn during the program in a real-world setting and gain valuable experience. This will also enable participants to discuss case studies and receive feedback from the expert mentors during the one-on-one mentoring sessions.
The patient can be an existing patient, a family member, or a friend, but we recommend that the patient is someone who is willing to participate in the program and receive treatment for their condition. Identifying a patient beforehand will allow you to come prepared with their medical history and help you to make the most of the program modules and the time you have with the mentors.
Organising a Sleep Study
If your patient hasn’t already had a sleep study we recommend that you organise one. Please feel free to use any system of diagnosis you have in place, and if you are new to this we recommend using 3D Sleep Diagnostics.
