Course Description

Patients come into your practice with airway issues and a symptom as subtle as a broken tooth. The truth is, dentistry has been managing the airway this entire time, just not knowing it. We’re going to show you how to improve the longevity of your restorations, improve practice productivity, and realize that 70% of your patients need your help treating their airway and sleep issue. You’ll understand that you’ve been treating symptoms (broken teeth, occlusal wear, abfractions, collapsed vertical) of a bigger issue. You will have a new reason to look forward to treating your patients with a team-driven approach that has your back.
This 2-hour video moderated by Dr. Lou Graham, is designed to teach you the three pathways that uncover hidden airway issues in your practice. Learn the new direction of dentistry integrating airway management into the general restorative practice using the TAO Method (incorporating TMJ, Airway and Ortho).
