What is this CE course all about?

Sleep Apnea is a medical condition whose treatment includes various oral appliances constructed and delivered by dentists. The outcome of dental sleep medicine services should be successful both clinically and financially, including payment by medical carriers. In fact, patients expect their medical plans to participate in the cost of these treatments. Case acceptance is directly tied to the dental practice’s knowledge of billable services and available benefits for services, include diagnostics, radiography, and treatment by various oral appliances. Practices beginning to add these services or expanding treatment options beyond mandibular advancement will benefit from learning how to recognize and treat the full spectrum of clinical presentations and be paid for such valuable service!
