Experienced dental sleep medicine and craniofacial pain specialist, Dr. Mayoor Patel, announces the upcoming four-day mini-residency at ResMed’s facilities in San Diego, CA on Sleep Medicine and Dentistry. Dr. Patel encourages dentists to join the limited list of students allowed in this American Academy of Craniofacial Pain (AACP) mini-residency September 28 - October 1, 2016.

This all new program is now offered as a weekend course that will incorporate lectures, hands-on training and case reviews. Dentists will receive approximately 30 continuing education credits for their participation and completion of the AACP’s mini-residency.

“Partnering with the AACP for this mini-residency can be life changing,” said Dr. Mayoor Patel, a dental sleep medicine and craniofacial pain specialist in Atlanta, GA. “This course is limited to 25 students, which means it is imperative that dentists and doctors sign up as soon as possible. I look forward to working with my fellow dentists, as well as sleep physicians in this team effort for the treatment of patients with sleep breathing disorders.”

In this sleep course with the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain in San Diego (https://www.aacfp.org/events/AACP_MiniResidency_Class5_Brochure_2016_INTERACTIVE.pdf), dentists will pick up the knowledge and clinical skills required to assess and differentially diagnose commonly encountered temporomandibular disorders seen in a dental practice that might impact the successful treatment of a patient with a sleep breathing disorder. Dentists will also gain advanced medical and dental training to successfully treat patients in their practice. While learning these specific areas, dentists will also make progress toward fulfilling AACP Fellowship, AGD Mastership requirements and ABDSM CE requirements for examination.

“Training is provided by both dentists and physicians to increase the scope of understanding, as well as fostering the importance of a team approach to ensure the highest level of patient care possible,” said Dr. Patel. “This is a unique opportunity for both dentists and physicians, so I highly encourage dentists to sign up now.”
