OSA Education and Advocacy is Redefining the Roles of Dentists Around the World
Date:7/31/2013

Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

Dentists from around the world are attending dental continuing education courses focusing on the dental treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. Dental sleep medicine education company, Sleep Group Solutions has instructed thousands of dentists on implementing a proper sleep protocol. SGS Instructor, and dental sleep medicine expert, Dr. Daniel Tache, encourages other dentists to become advocates, by learning how to identify and offer treatment for sleep disordered breathing patients, by attending the SGS program.

Wisconsin Dentist, and Dental Sleep Medicine expert, Dr. Daniel Tache is no stranger to airway issues. Since 1974, Dr. Tache has been heavily involved in assessing patients' airways, and continuing his education in snoring and sleep apnea. As the first dentist to become President of the Wisconsin Sleep Society, Dr. Tache has helped pave the way in dental sleep medicine, and continues to do so. “It began about 7 years ago, when I treated my first adolescent sleep patient,” says Dr. Daniel Tache when asked why he is an advocate for sleep apnea treatment. At the time, 14 year old patient, ‘A.N’ was referred to Dr. Tache by his pediatric neurologist, and described as having a ‘failure to thrive’.

In the course of 24 months, Dr. Tache witnesses a remarkable recovery and change in A.N’s health, development and over all demeanor. “This child, A.N., had his life changed because a dentist took the time to learn the basics of Dental Sleep Medicine from an excellent entry-level weekend course, like the ones offered by Sleep Group Solutions,” says Daniel Tache, DMD, Diplomate, American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. From this point on, the entire office became advocates for treatment, and has since treated thousands of sufferers through oral appliance therapy. (Read the full case review.)

As an avid advocate for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea, Dr. Tache continues to encourage other dentists, from around the world, to learn up-to-date techniques, and get familiar with technology that can assist in treatment. “Evidence-based knowledge of sleep medicine, coupled with technology can markedly increase effectiveness of Dental Sleep Medicine Oral Airway Device therapy,” says Dr. Tache. He adds the importance of using technology in the particular case of A.N, as this patient would not respond to mandibular advancement alone, and in order to stabilize A.N’s airway, an increased opening was needed. “Acoustic Pharyngometry helped us to determine how much opening we needed, and we incorporated that information into the fabrication of his mandibular repositioning device (MRD). A.N would have not responded to advancement alone,” says Dr. Tache on the use of technology.

To increase existing knowledge of dental sleep medicine, or to learn it for the first time, attending a dental continuing education course with Sleep Group Solutions is a great starting place, according to Dr. Daniel Tache. For those interested in learning with Dr. Daniel Tache, dentists can register for his upcoming course in Eau Claire, WI on October 26/27th.
