Nierman Practice Management Returns to Charlotte as Part of Dental Sleep Medicine Seminar Series

Share Article

As the awareness of the dangers of sleep apnea continues to spread across the U.S., more and more of the estimated 22 million affected Americans are seeking solutions from their local dentist. Dentists can treat patients suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy (OAT), as an alternative option for patients who cannot tolerate or refuse CPAP.

“We’re excited about taking our dental sleep medicine course back to Charlotte,” says Rose Nierman, CEO of Nierman Practice Management.

Nierman Practice Management (NPM) is returning to Charlotte this year on March 7-8th at the Hilton Charlotte Center City with their 2-day seminar series, “Successful Implementation of Dental Sleep Medicine.” NPM’s continuing education seminar provides dentists with the latest clinical research, as well as practical implementation guidelines. Dedicated breakout sessions, led by Rose Nierman or a staff educator, help dental administrators navigate the documentation and codes needed for successful medical billing. “We’re excited about taking our dental sleep medicine course back to Charlotte,” says Rose Nierman, CEO of Nierman Practice Management. “Appliances for OAT are predominately approved as “medically necessary” by insurers and we are delighted to assist more patients in gaining access to care by teaching dentists how to implement sleep apnea appliance protocols and maximize their patients’ medical insurance benefits.”

The Nierman team and educational faculty of industry leaders share an incredible passion for providing the education, tools and support throughout all stages of implementation. The main speaker for the Charlotte seminar will be Mark Paschen, DDS, a practicing dentist from Baraboo, Wisconsin. Dr. Paschen limits his practice to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, dental sleep medicine and orthodontics. It’s obvious that Dr. Paschen does have a passion for treating sleep breathing disorders. He recently stated, “The ability to change someone's life through oral appliance therapy for OSA is one of my greatest rewards.”

The value dentists receive from an educational seminar should go far beyond a weekend course. It’s important that attendees gain access to an ongoing support network of dedicated industry experts. NPM has teamed up with some of the leading companies in the industry. Attendees will be able to try a variety of home sleep studies and view a wide range of oral appliances for the treatment of OSA while at the seminar.

Successful Implementation of Dental Sleep Medicine seminars are accredited with the AGD PACE and ADA CERP programs and offers 16 CE credits. A comprehensive list of course dates and locations for the 2014 courses can be seen at
