For participants in the program, the next of our series of live webinars is Wednesday 23rd of September 7.30pm.

This webinar will cover one of the most important areas for establishing your practice in dental sleep. While you will have many patients in your practice that will benefit from an oral appliance, the key to being able to provide this treatment is to have in place a simple and expeditious method of diagnosing your patients. While we have covered aspects of diagnosis in the previous webinars, in session one we will provide all the details required to establish a system of diagnosing your patients.  The second area that is critical for success involves choosing the best available appliance for your patient.  With over 100 different designs available, in session two a rationale for appliance selection will be presented that goes a long way in ensuring successful outcomes in terms of comfort and effectiveness.
