role of the GDP' in Oxford on Friday 29th - Saturday 30th April
2005. Details can be found at
www.zsa.co.uk. Practitioners interested in the treatment of
anti-social snoring and OSA with dental appliances are urged to register
for what we believe should be a most informative and stimulating course.
The BSocDSM wishes to promote research on the use of oral appliances for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing and intends to provide training and resources for those who work directly with patients. The BSDSM members intend to collaborate with colleagues to learn about oral appliances and the role they play in the recognition and treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders. The society wishes to build bridges and form relationships with the medical community, especially in sleep centres, and other professional groups who play an integral part of the sleep disorders treatment and research team.
The BSocDSM intends to help educate practitioner Dentists through clinical meetings that keep leading-edge ideas accessible and establish and maintain appropriate treatment protocol. The BSDSM also intends to reach out to the community at large, working towards the creation of a positive public awareness of sleep disorders and the role of the Dentist in recognition and treatment of sleep breathing disorders.
