PRLog - Feb. 22, 2013 - TEQUESTA, Fla. -- Nierman Practice Management, developers of DentalWriter Software, releases expanded 2013 "Successful Implementation of Dental Sleep Medicine" Phase I and Phase II CE Seminar Schedule. The highly acclaimed 2-day course educates dentists and team members on how to treat sleep apnea patients with oral appliance therapy. If a patient has been diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and has failed or rejected CPAP treatment, they can turn to their dentist for care. These seminars, part of Henry Schein's Sleep Complete program, are taught by Dr. John Tucker, an ABDSM diplomat, who has successfully integrated dental sleep medicine into his practice. Providing 14 CE Credits, the sessions cover identifying at-risk patients, oral appliances and treatment protocols. While the dentist is learning the medical model for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), their team members are trained by a certified Nierman Practice Management instructor about more effective medical insurance documentation and billing, as well as creating referral letters and progress reports. Attendees of the Sleep Complete course have the opportunity to test out the overnight sleep study and analyze the results as part of a group session. Additional hands-on activities will be offered in 2013 to help practices feel comfortable with the home sleep testing unit, bite registrations and the DentalWriter Software.
Nierman Seminars are taught by Dr. John Tucker, ABDSM, and Rose Nierman
Attendees of seminars come away with the knowledge, confidence and inspiration to bill medical insurance for sleep apnea, build physician referrals and grow their OSA practice. Dr. Tara Griffin, a recent seminar participant advocated, “As our sleep medicine practice has grown, so has our team. And they are all being trained by Dr. Tucker and the DentalWriter team. My goal in the next two years is to be solely practicing dental sleep medicine. I will own much of that success to Dr. Tucker and DentalWriter!
Rose Nierman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nierman Practice Management, said "We're very excited about a packed 2013 seminar schedule! In addition to the Sleep Complete courses, we are also expanding our Unlocking the Code to Medical Billing in Dentistry courses”. As part of our mission to help dental practices expand their special services into areas such as TMD, Orthodontics, Implant Dentistry and Dental Sleep Medicine, we believe it is vital to provide dentists and their teams with comprehensive education and training programs.”
