-- In an effort to train more dentists and staff members on screening, testing and treating sleep apnea patients, in-office virtual seminars will now be available in 2018.

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, test, and treat patients for snoring and sleep apnea by offering dental continuing education seminars
on the matter. "Attendees can still learn live with us throughout the year in a classroom setting," says Henry Armstrong, HST America's Dental Sleep Program Manager. "And for the offices not interested in traveling but still want to learn our zero-dollar sleep protocol, we will be offering virtual seminars that are live, but the dental offices will be logging-on to attend our Success in Sleep seminar."
During the full-day virtual sleep seminar
, attendees can expect to learn everything they would in the classroom lecture. Including the basics of sleep apnea, prevalence, signs and symptoms, screening techniques, treatment options, and medical billing best practices. "The goal is to bring sleep apnea protocols to the masses," 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, which can be learned in either our live classroom seminars, or our virtual ones." Dr. Marty Lipsey is the lead presenter during the HST America Success in Sleep seminar series.
Dentists and staff members will grasp the idea that they need not invest in any equipment or software, or pay any sign-on or referral fees just to be able to screen, test, and treat sleep apnea patients. "One of the major obstacles dentists face when starting a sleep program is the large upfront costs," says Henry Armstrong. "Add in paying travel expenses for an entire office, and the idea to implement a sleep protocol may seem even more out of reach for some dentists." The HST America virtual seminar will aid in eliminating extra costs associated with traveling for live CEU training, while experiencing the same learning objectives.
