Dr. Steve Carstensen Presents First Webinar for Dental Division of American Sleep and Breathing Academy

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013

People want to see doctors, therapists, and dentists who keep up with the latest strategies for treating their problems. Sleep related breathing disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are being noticed more and more and are being connected with life-threatening problems like heart attacks and diabetes.

Busy doctors look online for education. The American Sleep and Breathing Academy offers a wide range of webinars and research to provide the latest education to these professionals.

While physicians do all the diagnosis of sleep breathing disorders and together with therapists provide much of the treatment, dentists are called upon to make custom oral appliances for many of their patients. It takes special training for dentists to be part of this therapy.

Thus, the Dental Division was started to not only provide education for dentists interested in treating obstructive sleep apnea, but also so the physicians can learn more about how collaboration with a trained dentist can allow them to offer more solutions to their patients.

The very first educational offering of the new Dental Division is "A Summary of Oral Appliances for Sleep Breathing Disorders" presented by Dr. Steve Carstensen, DDS. Intended as a introduction for this treatment strategy, this hour long webinar covers how oral appliance work, how the treatment compares to more common CPAP machines, and how physicians can find the trained dentists in their communities.

Medical professionals across the board are finding that working together gives their patients a better chance of optimum health. Dentists are reaching out to physicians to open the door to closer collaboration in ways not seen in years past.

The Dental Division and this first webinar is a great example of the realization that there is no separation necessary between all kinds of medical care if the focus is on helping as many people as possible in our community enjoy the best health.
