Malocclusion & Medical History: a Dentist’s Guide to Pediatric Airway & Sleep Medicine


  • Pediatic OSA is more common that cancer.  It contributes to cause to hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, ADHD, and depression.  Yet we’ve only just barely scratched the surface of understanding this complex and multi-dimensional disease.  As a result there’s more uncertainty than clarity for practicing dentists – more fiction than fact; more sizzle than steak.  Lots of strongly held opinions, but minimal evidence to offer useful clinical guidelines for successful case selection.

    Therefore purpose of this introductory lecture is to offer essential instructions about sleep apnea and airway for general practice dentists.  By understanding the association between malocclusion and medical history, attendees will learn how to implement a phenotype-based approach to guiding multi-disciplinary care.

    Topics reviewed in this lecture include

  • Fundamentals of Dental Sleep Medicine
  • The Hidden Connection between Malocclusion and Medical History
  • Craniofacial Phenotypes of Children with OSA
  • Effective Screening & Diagnosis using Everyday Tools in Clinical Practice
  • An Overview of Multi-Disciplinary Care: lessons learned from 10 years of practice in a multi-disciplinary airway team
  • Useful Homecare Advise for Patients & Parents
  • The ADA&C Standard of Practice for Sleep Disordered Breathing
