Dental Sleep Medicine for Students

Dental Sleep Medicine & the AADSM

Dental sleep medicine (DSM) is an area of dental practice that focuses on providing oral appliance therapy (OAT) to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dentists work together with physicians to identify the best treatment for each patient. DSM is a fast-growing field that can enhance your career by unlocking immediate patient and partnership opportunities. By incorporating DSM into your education and career path, you will be able to work closely with sleep physicians to solve patients’ sleep problems to improve their long-term health.

The AADSM is here to help! As a professional membership society for dentists who help patients control snoring and obstructive sleep apnea through the use of oral appliance therapy, the AADSM has had 25+ years of proven success providing members with first-rate educational opportunities and resources to grow their dental sleep medicine practices.

Joining AADSM can give you a head start at a successful career and arm you with the resources to excel at providing OAT. As an AADSM student member, you will have access to education, research and networking opportunities that will position you to succeed in dental sleep medicine.
