One of the major obstacles dentists face when starting a sleep program is the large upfront costs.
IRVINE, CA, February 24, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea, have become a growing health concern in the United States. According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, an estimated 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80 percent of those cases remaining undiagnosed. HST America is helping dentists to screen and treat patients for snoring and sleep apnea by offering dental continuing education seminars on the matter.
During the full-day sleep seminar, Success in Sleep, attendees can expect to learn the basics of sleep apnea including prevalence, signs and symptoms, screening techniques, treatment options, and medical billing best practices. "80 percent of dental teams attempting to implement sleep in their practices fail," says Dr. Marty Lipsey, a dentist and medical billing specialist in California. "Success in this area is not based on equipment or software. Success comes from implementing a tried and true system." Dr. Marty Lipsey is the lead presenter at the seminar, and has been fine-tuning successful sleep systems for the past 11 years.
HST America teaches a truly zero dollar sleep protocol. During the full-day, eight CEU seminar, dentists will grasp the idea that they need not invest in any equipment or software, or pay any sign-on or referral fees. "One of the major obstacles dentists face when starting a sleep program is the large upfront costs," says Henry Armstrong, Dental Sleep Program Manager at HST America. "These costs can be eliminated by referring out certain services to partners who work directly with the patient and their medical insurance." HST America mentoring can make the difference between failure and success in sleep.
Upcoming seminars include:
APRIL 8 - ORANGE COUNTY
MAY 13 - ORANGE COUNTY
JUNE 17 - LOS ANGELES
JULY 8 - SAN DIEGO
