Dental Sleep Medicine - Your Team on Fire

1 CEU: On Demand

COST: Free

PRESENTER: Mr. Michael Cowen, CEO & Founder of Awaken2Sleep

SPONSOR: Awaken2Sleep

DESCRIPTION: In this webinar we will discuss how to build the basic structure for a sleep program and equip your dental team to understand the path of treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea. We will first connect with what OSA is and the prevalence of the condition in the practice, then how to screen, and finally a simple protocol to increase case acceptance of a home sleep study. If you are in a state that does not permit the dental involvement of providing home sleep studies this webinar can help you learn a system for referring those patients to the appropriate provider. if you are just starting or looking to take your sleep program to the next level, this webinar is for you! 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 

In this course we will learn and focus on:

  • Understanding the Presence of OSA in our Dental Patients
  • Defining "Dental Sleep Medicine" and the Role of Dentists in Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Exploring Screening for OSA from "The Mouth Out"
  • Building a Simple Workflow for Case Acceptance of a Home Sleep Study to Diagnose Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Mr Michael Cowen, CEO & Founder of Awaken2Sleep

Michael Cowen, CEO & Founder of Awaken2Sleep, started his journey in sleep medicine in 2003 performing in-lab sleep studies as a classically-trained pediatric sleep technician at Loma Linda Children's Hospital in Southern California. Five years later, this training and experience empowered him to save his infant daughter's life from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a leading cause of SIDS in infants. After recognizing his calling to passionately assist others to help their own patients, Mr. Cowen went on to become an expert in the Business of Sleep Medicine, building and developing a network of sleep centers/DME companies across the United States. Additionally, Mr. Cowen assisted with the development of newly-patented CPAP technology at the start of the decade. After spending 8 years in the sleep medicine field, Mr. Cowen identified the dental market as the largest segment for growth in the awareness of OSA. In 2015, seeing an opportunity to bring testing and awareness to the forefront, he founded Awaken2Sleep, a company whose vision is to empower dental providers and their teams to treat patients with sleep apnea.
