According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes Sleep Apnea remains a growing health concern with an estimated 18 million  Americans suffering.  Sleep Group Solutions offers dental continuing education  courses, with an emphasis in Dental Sleep Medicine.  With a growing demand for  treatment, SGS is now offering an Advanced course to the dental community,  taught by Dr.  Daniel Tache, Diplomat of the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the current  president of the Wisconsin Sleep Society and an instructor for Sleep Group  Solutions.

Now more than ever, dentists are seeking higher education to learn new skills  and protocols on proper treatment methods for snoring and sleep apnea.  Sleep  Group Solutions is currently the leader in dental continuing education for  Dental Sleep Medicine, offering over 60 courses in 2012.

Dentists such as Dr. Larry  Grillo in Aventura, Fl attended a course from SGS and currently is one of  the few dentists in the area screening and treating sleep apnea.  “Treating  obstructive sleep apnea impacts the systemic health of our patients more  significantly than almost any other service we provide.

It is incredibly  rewarding to work with physicians and offer treatment to patients once you begin  to recognize the intra-oral signs and symptoms of sleep apnea,”  says Dr. Grillo, who  will also be attending and speaking about his experience at the Ft. Lauderdale  course offered by SGS on February 10th and 11th.

An advanced Dental Sleep Medicine course will debut in July, taught by Dr.  Daniel Tache an innovator and pioneer in education, speaking about sleep apnea  and treatment options.  This course is strictly for dentists who have treated  patients and have made a few appliances.  This advanced course will be in depth  and skip over intro level topics and deal with cases individually.

“Such  courses as the Advanced Sleep/Pain Course are slowly beginning to emerge.  This  course will help to establish and evidence-based framework for both IDENTIFYING  and TREATING our patients and those who are sent to us who have Sleep and/or  Pain problems,” explains Tache on his upcoming seminar.

2012 will be the year of Dental Sleep Medicine!  Numerous dental companies  have followed in the footsteps of Sleep Group Solutions, and have since  incorporated a sleep program in their initiatives.  Heavy hitter, Glidewell  Laboratory has also joined forces with Sleep Group Solutions to offer a course  on January 20-21 in Irvine, CA at the Glidewell International Technology Center.  Its safe to say 2012 will witness a demand for further education and  information on Dental Sleep Medicine.
