The 2-day course, Protect your Dental Sleep Medicine Practice is set for December 9-10th, 2016 in Jupiter, FL, covering the legal aspects and protocols for implementing dental sleep medicine. The course was first launched by Dr. Berley and his wife Ms. Patty Berley, and Nierman Practice Management in 2014.
“I will be digging deep into the legal aspects of implementing dental sleep medicine into the dental practice.” Says speaker Dr. Ken Berley, DDS, JD.
Dr. Berley is currently the only board certified sleep medicine dentist and practicing attorney, and offers a unique perspective on what it takes to stay legally protected when treating obstructive sleep apnea in a dental practice.
“This course was designed to equip practices with the knowledge to protect themselves from the consequences of providing treatment to sleep patients who could cause both automobile and industrial accidents.”
These incidents are becoming more frequent and recognized, as seen with the recent September 29th New Jersey train crash, where it was reported that sleep apnea was targeted as a causative factor in the incident that killed 1 person and injured over 100.
“Risk management of Dental Sleep Medicine will add value to every practice and will help establish gold standard protocols moving forward. We guide the dentists through the steps necessary to safeguard their practice from the tidal wave of litigation that is a real possibility. In addition, Rose Nierman will be teaching team members the proper risk management protocols for medical billing, documentation, record keeping and patient communications. This is an essential two-day seminar for dentists and team members.”
Nierman Practice Management is a leader in educating dental practices on incorporating dental sleep medicine, craniofacial pain, and proper medical billing protocols in order to expand their practice.
