Illinois Dentists are Offered Dental Continuing Education Courses Focusing on the Treatment of Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

Sleep Group Solutions, leaders in dental continuing education teamed up with Ottawa Dental Laboratory in 2012 to teach dentists how to treat patients for sleep apnea and snoring, through oral appliance therapy (OAT).  Ottawa Dental Laboratory, a full service dental laboratory, fabricates sleep appliances for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea, and offers clients continuing education opportunities to learn Sleep. SGS and Ottawa Dental Laboratory are offering their next joint seminar on July 19-20th in Rosemont, IL, with SGS instructor, Dr. Marty Lipsey.

Dental continuing education courses focusing on the treatment of sleep apnea have become an asset in dental offices across the country.  With more than 20% of Americans report getting less than 5 hours of sleep each night, the sense of urgency to offer treatment options to those who suffer is imperative.

All our attendees are taught the proper sleep protocol to practice.” mentions John Nadeau, SGS Vice President. “This partnership makes sense.  Ottawa Dental Lab is very good at what they do.  They offer a variety of sleep appliances, including the Respire Blue Series, EMA and the NORAD.”

Teaming up with Ottawa Dental Laboratory, a full service lab in Ottawa, IL will provide seminar attendees with a hands on experience with oral appliance therapy.  “Our partnership with Sleep Group Solutions affords us the opportunity to help our dental clients expand their business through sleep medicine. We’re very excited to be a part of the treatment of such a life-threatening condition, and it all begins with education.”  says Luke Caruso, President and CEO of Ottawa Dental Laboratory.  SGS and Ottawa Dental Laboratory have already hosted six seminars together since 2012, and there are many more in the pipeline.

About Ottawa Dental Laboratory
The Ottawa Dental Laboratory has been serving the dental community since 1937. The lab was founded by Lucien “Tony” Caruso on a shoestring budget. Tony’s philosophy from day one was to “treat every case as though it were for your mother” which became the foundation for his success. Little did Tony realize way back then, just how strong of a foundation he had created, which now in it’s 3rd generation, supports 3 locations. It’s been seventy-five years in the making. Like the father before him, Luke, Jr. has mentored his sons, Luke, III and Jim, in the dental laboratory business. Luke, III is VP of CAD/CAM and New Technology. He is committed to the investment in innovative equipment, technology, and materials, as well as new product development. Jim is VP of New Business Development and oversees many of the operational functions of all three laboratories. He ensures that all three of the locations operate like a well-oiled machine in order to deliver the best products and service to their customers.
