Australasian Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine launched

Association News

The Australasian Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AustADSM) was launched at the three-day residential sleep seminar - An exploration of Dental Sleep Medicine and the role of the GDP - in Sydney in July.

Dental Sleep Medicine is a relatively new field of therapy that has allowed the dental team to help manage a medical problem - sleep-related breathing disorders ranging from benign snoring to severe obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). The Academy recognises that dentists are an important link in the chain and can often identify abnormal conditions in their patients and screen for medical problems. The AustADSM intends to help educate practitioner dentists through clinical meetings and webinars that keep leading-edge ideas accessible and establish and maintain an appropriate treatment protocol. Anyone connected with the provision of treatment to snoring/OSA patients is welcome to join, be they dental surgeons, dental technicians, medical practitioners, respiratory nurses, ENT consultants and Respiratory Medicine physicians. Membership is just $90 per year and includes a membership certificate, newsletter and discounts to postgraduate CE courses.
