About the AADSM Mastery Program

The AADSM Mastery Program is a comprehensive, clinically focused and evidence-based education program that provides dentists with the necessary training and skills they need to provide oral appliance therapy to patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. This program is limited to licensed dentists and consists of two courses (Mastery 1 and Mastery 2). Upon successful completion of the program, dentists will be eligible to sit for the ABDSM certification examination.

The AADSM provides unbiased, standardized education and therefore does not reference any specific appliance or other product or service during its educational courses. Attendees of Mastery will instead become familiar with the Mastery Nomenclature for Device Classification, so industry is encouraged to refer to this document when corresponding with attendees.

The AADSM will be hosting a Mastery 2 in-person, November 3-7, 2021, which will include an exhibit hall with tabletop exhibits. Attendees will consist of dentists who have completed Mastery 1. 

The maximum number of attendees is 130. Exhibit space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The AADSM is also hosting the Emerging Concepts: Ordering and Administering HSAT Course in-person, December 4-5, 2021, at the same hotel in New Orleans, which will include an exhibit hall. Discounted pricing is available to companies who exhibit at both courses. Please see below for more information regarding pricing.
