Expanding Dental Continuing Education Through New Partnerships
February 22, 2012
Sleep Group Solutions offers over 60 dental continuing education seminars annually. With a focus in Dental Sleep Medicine, Sleep Group Solutions remains a leader in dental continuing education, training thousands of dentists how to properly screen and treat sleep apnea. SGS is pleased to announce a new lab partnership with Gergen’s Orthodontic Lab, which will add an in depth, hands on oral appliance overview to the seminars.
With such an increased demand for sleep disordered breathing appliances, SGS is teaming up with dental labs, such as Gergen’s Orthodontic Lab to offer attendees a turn key solution for their sleep apnea practice, and patients. David Gergen of Gergen’s Orthodontic Lab has seen a huge demand by his dental clients to incorporate the treatment of sleep apnea into their practice. “I have been training offices across the country on the use of the Sleep Herbst and the Respire appliance. These appliances are in huge demand. For example, Chief Dental Sleep Director Brittany DeFrank from Lone Star Dental Sleep Medicine, says they have successfully treated over 40 patients with these appliances in just one month time.” David adds, “We are excited about this new partnership with SGS and are looking forward to teaching dentists how they can save lives.”
Sleep Group Solutions have added two new seminars with Gergen’s Orthodontic Lab to the calendar. Myrtle Beach on March 16/17 and Phoenix on May 4/5. To register for these courses, or to see the course layout please log onto SleepGS.com.
