Hygienists from coast to coast are finding out that nothing in dentistry is more rewarding, both financially and emotionally, than Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM).
Hygienists (and dentists) are at the front line in the battle against obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We’re in the most favorable position to discover and treat our sleep apnea affected patients.  One out of every three patients we see has the symptoms of sleep disorder
The timing is opportune for you. Less than 5% of dental offices are qualified to provide service to the 40 million victims of OSA.

We Hygienists are in the key position to recognize the signs and symptoms of OSA in our patients and to introduce the service to our practices.   The benefits-  financially and emotionally, are tremendous- to us Hygienists, to our doctors, and to our patients. .

OSA can kill, or at minimum, will severely diminish quality of life.  The repeated episodes of no oxygen passing to the brain for prolonged periods of time while asleep affects all the organs,  and is connected to strokes, HBP, diabetes, dementia, weight gain and demeanor of people who have this disease.  Sleep Apnea is so much more than snoring.
