  • course description

    Perhaps the most popular topic in the world of dental CE is that of sleep apnea. We have all been told about how insidious and deadly this highly undiagnosed disease can be, but sadly, most of our CE centers around dental treatment, often based on expensive oral devices and an ethically questionable shift in our roles as healthcare practitioners.

    In this highly entertaining and pragmatic full-day course, Dr. Gupta presents a realistic vision of our roles in preventing this disease, especially in susceptible children, while still staying in our lanes as dentists.
