What is this CE course all about?

As dentocentric practices evolve beyond treating just teeth, recognition of treatment protocols and payment for medical-in-nature services provided by dentists are incorporated into everyday practice. Perhaps the most important of these services centers around the connection of the oral cavity and the upper airway.

Dentists play a critical role in helping people with airway issues. When treating such medical-in-nature problems, the dental practice must be prepared for the intersection of clinical workflow and medical insurance to achieve a successful clinical and financial treatment outcome.
