You may be wondering WHY a dentist - or dental team member - administering sleep apnea appliance therapy, needs to know about CPAP treatment. It’s simple. As your DSM practice grows, fostering physician relationships is a critical component to maximizing the full potential of your dental sleep medicine practice — and helping more patients sleep and breathe better!
Understanding the fundamentals of CPAP therapy enables you to drive insightful and comprehensive discussions with physicians regarding sleep apnea treatment options. CPAP knowledge and appreciation can fuel the conversation of what happens next, to the patients that reject CPAP treatment. Additionally, gaining an understanding of CPAP non-compliant patients leverages an entry point into a discussion of the country’s sky-high rate of untreated sleep apnea and airway sufferers.

The OSA-U goal is to help dentists better understand CPAP patients and CPAP providers so that more patients are treated.
