 Updates in management of Sleep Breathing Disorders (SBD)


Program Co-Chairs: Mariona Mulet, Maria Hernandez, Massimiliano Di Giosia


Course Description: The basis of this conference is to review the current status of Sleep Medicine disorders with an emphasis on the role of the dentist in the management of Sleep Breathing Disorders (SBD). The conference will provide presentations by guest speakers as well as an opportunity to have an interactive discussion at the end of each presentation. The diverse disciplines and professional backgrounds of the guest speakers reflect the multidisciplinary nature of sleep medicine. Dental professionals should become familiar with the most common sleep disorders, including Sleep Breathing Disorders (SBD), since these impact a high percentage of the population, often times remaining undiagnosed, and their presence can negatively impact outcomes in pain management.
