Airway & Breathing Related Disorders – Evaluation, Diagnosis & Treatment (Member Discount Eligible)

May 7, 2020 - May 8, 2020

Through hands-on instruction by Dr. Witt Wilkerson, Resident Expert of Integrative Dental Medicine and immediate past President of AAOSH, you will gain an understanding of the critical role of airway obstructions and disordered breathing when proper treatment planning.  Manifestations may include signs and symptoms such as dental malocclusions, bruxism, tongue-tie, GERD, attention deficit, poor sleep, sleep apnea, daytime fatigue, TMD and morning headaches.  Every patient, regardless of age, should be assessed for the presence of potential airway problems. Positive findings should initiate definitive protocols for management and resolution.

This hands-on workshop will enable the dentist to develop specific clinical guidelines for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of Airway & Breathing Related Disorders. Participants will learn how to examine and test patients, along with phase one management options. Phase two management options, which may include arch expansion and reorganization of the dental occlusion, following the Dawson Principles will be explored.

Attendees will leave this course knowing how to:

  • Read home sleep tests
  • Interpret CBCT assessment of airway
  • Effectively use oral appliance therapy
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of airway disordered breathing

This course will also be held on September 25-26  in Denver, CO (Mountain West Dental Institute) and October 8-9 in St. Petersburg, FL  (The Dawson Academy).
