The International Federation of Sleep is an organization that endeavors to spread awareness and understanding of this common and mostly undiagnosed and untreated sleep disorder. Through our educational resources, we strive to educate the public on sleep apnea, its iterations, symptoms, risk factors and treatments. And through our quarterly ADA-approved, CE-qualified Sleep Apnea Seminars and online educational portal Sleep Practice Perks , we empower dentists to successfully and ably implement dental sleep treatment in their practices.
90% Of Sleep Apnea Sufferers Are Untreated
There are currently an estimated 22 million Americans with sleep apnea of which only 10% have been diagnosed and are receiving treatment. When you consider that the consequences of untreated sleep apnea are high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, moodiness, extreme fatigue and an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, it becomes evident that this sleeping disorder is a national health crisis that needs greater attention and focus from both physicians and dentists.
Greater Sleep Apnea Awareness Through Education
The International Federation of Sleep believes that by providing dentists with the training and education they need, not only in the screening and Treatment of Sleep Apnea through oral appliances, but also in the business and marketing strategies necessary for successful practice implementation, more and more patients can receive the treatment they need to enjoy a much better quality of life.
The treatment of snoring and sleep apnea is one of the fastest-growing fields of dentistry and yet it is virtually untapped, because the current model for patient screening is so incredibly selective! This is why the International Federation of Sleep has endeavored to spread the importance of incorporating sleep treatment into the standard services of any dental practice. The potential for increased patient intake and revenue makes it an extremely able enterprise, but the ultimate payoff is helping the millions of patients that didn’t even know they had a problem in the first place to markedly improve their quality of life.
