As healthcare experts continue to suggest that patients with sleep apnea can benefit from visiting a dentist, some dental schools are launching new classes that teach students how to diagnose and treat individuals with this illness.
For instance, The Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies has created several course offerings that focus on patients with sleep apnea. Students who take advantage of these classes will be better prepared when they enter the job market to work with both disorder sufferers and sleep specialists.
In addition to learning diagnostic and treatment skills, these classes will emphasize the importance of having this knowledge and the many dangers that are linked to this disease.
Don Lowrance, a dentist who treats sleep apnea patients, stated that "people with [this disorder] often dont know that they have it." He added that "by simply asking some questions that their primary doctor might not know to ask, we can help people be aware of the problem and start them on the road to treatment."
Patients with little or no dental insurance benefits who have developed the disorder can benefit from researching discount dental plans. By finding an affordable dental program, people can receive treatment without having to worry about expensive medical bills.
