Getting Patients to say YES to a Sleep Test – The Psychology Behind Obstructed Perceptions
April 24, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
We hope by now you are screening all your patients for an airway problem, and finding more and more patients with suspected sleep and airway issues. How do you get them to take the next step – a Home Sleep Test.
In this webinar, Ryan Javanbakht will teach you how to identify the emotional reasons for patient resistance and how to overcome them for the benefit of the patient and your practice.
Ryan Javanbakht is a Co-Founder of SleepTest.com, a national home sleep test service that allows patients to be tested in the comfort of their own beds, and equips clinicians with a trusted source for obstructive sleep apnea diagnostics. Ryan and his team founded SleepTest.com to initiate a safer, more effective sleep testing model, driven with purpose and integrity, to tackle the +30 million patients in the US that suffer with obstructive sleep apnea.
Ryan has spent most of his professional career in the healthcare arena, because his passion is people – specifically helping people live better, healthier and more impactful lives. His experience in both the medical and dental fields led him to fall in love with sleep medicine. Ryan fully committed to the field when he learned his father’s detrimental, cardiovascular condition could have been avoided with a sleep test.
Ryan demonstrates his passion to help people by providing engaging experiences that get his audiences to take action. He has been invited to speak at the North American Dental Sleep Symposium; the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine Annual Meeting; the i-CAT Congress; Henry Schein, Vatech, Benco, Burkhart and Invisalign continued education events.
Most important, Ryan is a husband to his wife Celena and father to their 4-year-old twins Micah and Skyla. Together they call Southern California their home, where they enjoy long walks at the beach with their dog Kya.
