CREATING AND GROWING A COLLABORATIVE AIRWAY PRACTICE
JERALD SIMMONS, MD
December 21, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
What is the best treatment for an airway sleep patient? The physician / CPAP, dentist / OAT, physical therapist / posture, myofunctional therapy, breathing training, diet and supplements … or … providing care together? We must move out of our silo, understand what other practitioners do, and learn and work together. This webinar will provide knowledge on building an interdisciplinary team for a patient. Dr. Jerald Simmons has been teaching physicians, dentists and other practitioners for years and will share methods you can use to build a collaborative practice in 2022.
