Learn Dental Sleep Trade “Secrets” from IAOS

The Dental Sleep Medicine Problem

With so many people living with sleep apnea (OSA) – and quite a few dentists having taken at least one sleep course – it’s surprising to learn that the majority of dentists who try to add sleep treatment to their practices fail.

Why Attend SleepCon?

Because no-one else in the industry is teaching how to harness the opportunity using proven, sound business strategies specific to sleep disorder treatment.

SleepCon: It’s like 3 Events in 1

SleepCon is the only conference of its kind: here, we have three unique educational tracks, providing you and your staff with 14 qualifying CE hours. Whether you’re looking for clinical depth, business acumen, or skills training for your team, SleepCon brings together all three key pillars of sleep:

The Science of Sleep

From understanding sleep disorders to conducting basic sleep exams, CPAP for dentists, APAP for titration, and other advanced topics, there’s a lot to know and understand about the science of sleep to be fully prepared to treat your patients.

By the time you leave SleepCon, you’ll be more knowledgeable about the science of sleep than almost any dentist you know.

The Business of Sleep

Most well-meaning dentists fail to experience much success in dental sleep medicine because they’ve been taught methods and strategies for getting patients that don’t actually work in the real world.

At SleepCon, you’ll discover a new, innovative and proven method for making your work in dental sleep medicine as successful as you want it to be. You’ll discover the framework for literally creating sleep patients instead of waiting for magic to happen.

Skills for Success

There’s a big difference between knowing how to succeed and actually realizing that success. While success in dental sleep medicine does require knowledge and consistent action, it also requires a specific mindset and skills that allow you to make smart decisions, quickly work through obstacles and assume the role of an effective healthcare entrepreneur.

At SleepCon, our focus is on giving you and your team tools that will increase the success you experience in every area of your life and work.
