Is sleep medicine a bridge between medicine and dentistry?

Episode 1 of the Sleep and Dentistry webinar series.​

This webinar will identify the ways in which dental and sleep medicine interact. Dental practitioners are uniquely positioned to identify some common sleep complaints and contribute to their management, including obstructive sleep apnea.

At the end of this session the dental practitioner will be able to interact meaningfully with other medical professionals in the sleep field and gain an understanding on how best to manage common sleep complaints.

During this webinar you will:

  • Know the varied presentations of sleep apnea and understand other common sleep complaints
  • Be able to assess the anatomical contributions to airway obstruction while appreciating the non-anatomical ones
  • Be able to effectively communicate with sleep physicians

This webinar is a must-watch for trainees and dental professionals.

We would like to thank our sponsors SomnoMed UK for their support of this webinar. Please note that the scientific programme and content has not been influenced in any way by the sponsor.

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live.

“Thank you for your ongoing interest in the Clinical Update Sleep event. Due to the current restrictions to public gatherings we have decided to postpone the face-to-face meeting that was planned for the 16th October 2020 at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in London. We will instead have a free webinar on the day dedicated to current concepts around sleep and the impact of COVID-19, insomnia and the latest on cardiorespiratory interaction in sleep apnoea. We will also present the highlights of the special Sleep-focused issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease that will be published in October for the Clinical Update Sleep event. Please come and join us for this free briefing during the webinar on the 16th October 2020. In addition, we very much hope that we can bring to you the originally planned face-to-face event on the 19th March 2021 at the RCP with all the usual hospitality. Thanks again for allowing us to find the ’New Normal’, even if there’s nothing normal about it. We look forward to discovering the latest updates in Sleep Medicine together with you!”

– Professor Joerg Steier, MD, FRCP, PhD, Conference Director
