I know we are going to save lives.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Coming together for the first time to educate dentists in the state of Arizona are Gergen's Orthodontic Lab and Hershberger Dental Lab teaming up with nationally known speaker Dr. Dar Radfar of Radfar Seminars to offer a one day course on dental sleep medicine on Saturday February 21, 2015. Topics to be covered at the event include: home sleep testing, taking the right bite, medicare model for treating sleep apnea, working with physicians, medical billing, office protocol, importance of chart notes and how to earn large profits treating sleep apnea. The speaker lineup will include Dr. Kevin Mueller, Dr. Dar Radfar and others and will offer 8 CEs.
David Gergen, CEO of Gergen's Orthodontic Lab who is nationally respected in dental sleep medicine, and Tom Hershberger, Owner of Hershberger Dental Lab who is known by hundreds of dentists across the country, have come together and their recent efforts to grow the dental industry in the field of sleep medicine have become a topic making headlines every where. Mr. Gergen, who many people know as the President of Pro Player Health Alliance, a company that spreads awareness of sleep apnea and holds health evaluations with the Living Heart Foundation sponsored by the NFLPA, says, "It was a no briner to partner with Tom [Hershberger]. He's a great guy, does quality work and is passionate about our mission. By showing dentists from all over the country how to overcome the hurdles in treating obstructive sleep apnea, I know we are going to save lives." Gergen and Hershberger are also putting an emphasis on finding the right bite. After the patient has an appliance and proves to find the correct bite, reconstructive work in the mouth can be done that could potentially offer a solution to obstructive sleep apnea without the patient having to wear the appliance anymore.
Pro Player Health Alliance is leading an effort to grow a nationwide network of dentists willing to learn more about treating obstructive sleep apnea and offer to treat NFL greats for their dental and sleep apnea needs. With countless people who have undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, David Gergen, Tom Hershberger, Dr. Dar Radfar and Pro Player Health Alliance are rapidly increasing awareness of the treatable sleeping disorder in the dental community and general population and ultimately changing lives.
