Sleep & Total Health

Why and How to Implement a Predictable Sleep and Airway Management Program

Dental sleep medicine is a growing procedure, especially as we start to look at our patients’ total health rather than just their oral health. 

Zephyr Sleep Technologies recently hosted an exclusive Seattle Study Club webinar: Sleep and Total Health, presented by Dr Shouresh Charkhandeh, that builds on the theme of holistic dentistry. During the session, he spoke about how sleep is an essential component of our lives and truly plays a vital role in both our physical and mental health. 

He discussed the value of sleep and how important it is for the dental community to start offering predictable sleep and airway management programs in their practices. He recommended dentists implement evidence-based and systematic clinical workflows which utilize available health and dental technologies to achieve improved and predictable clinical outcomes, better patient experience, and higher quality care and access to care. Dr Charkhandeh explained how interdisciplinary treatment planning is fundamental to the diagnosis and evaluation of proper airway management.
