The field of dental sleep medicine is rapidly growing. Around 20% of patients in a dental practice have undiagnosed sleep apnea. Dentists are in an excellent position to help treat this epidemic although many dentists have problems with the obstacles dental sleep medicine entails. The struggles that dentists go through when implementing sleep apnea treatment frequently overwhelm dentists into evading pursuit of dental sleep medicine. With the correct protocols in place, dental sleep medicine can be implemented into any dental practice. Dr. Elliott will share her experiences implementing sleep and how she has achieved success in her practice.
