I’m David Steffen with Sand Creek Family Dentistry in Glendive, Montana. We highly recommend OSA University and its dental sleep medicine training program. One of the reasons we introduced dental sleep medicine to our practice was because Dr. Coburn’s father had obstructive sleep apnea. We were excited to start on the road with treating our patients for obstructive sleep apnea or to address obstructed sleep airways and to help people have a more healthy and better lifestyle. OSA University and its team have been highly instrumental in our success.
OSA University helped us with dental sleep medicine implementation guidelines needed to treat patients in our practice who showed signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. OSA University was a tremendous help to our staff. They made learning fun and very educational. They helped us learn how to talk to patients about their sleep health and how to educate the patient to have their sleep health evaluated with sleep testing. The whole OSA University program helped our staff. It was a lot of fun and very educational.
I practice in Moore, OK and I’ve been a dentist since 2001. Got an opportunity to become involved with the sleep academy. We have been in-focus with total health of our patients and we noticed many patients with sleep health problems. This really prompted us to get deeply involved in helping improve patients sleep health. With the help of OSA University we were able to gain information about dental sleep medicine implementation, and the education and knowledge our team needed to be able to treat patients and make a better life for them.
My name is Katie Howard and I am General Manager for Advanced Family Dental and Orthodontics and Affiliates. I have been with the company for almost 16 years and I have seen Dr. David over the years educate patients on sleep health and the issues with obstructive sleep apnea. Today OSA University trained the staff and doctors on how to better communicate with and educate their patients on sleep health and how to get better sleep and lead a healthy life. I am grateful for them being here today and teaching us all how to have a uniform approach to our patients to provide better care.
I’m Dr. James Crouse from Salsberry, Maryland, and I am an orthodontist. My whole staff and I have gone through the OSA University sleep medicine team training curriculum. First with the online classes and then we had a day of dental sleep medicine team training in our office. Every thing was awesome and it has tied everything together for us. We have been able to go back and review the courses to add greater depth to our knowledge. We feel very confident now that we are providing excellent care to our patients that are suffering from sleep breathing disorders.
I have now been affiliated with OSA University for approximately the past 6 months. We went through the in-house dental sleep team training. We learned the importance of what sleep apnea and breathing disorders can do to our patients. Our staff became deeply involved in learning and working together. I find that it is very important to have a great staff that is very knowledgable in order to take some of the weight off me in order to introduce this to our patients. We are all working well together and have the same sleep health message for our patients.
Hi my name is Kerri and I am an assistant to Dr. Patterson in Stoney Creak in Muncie, IN. I am very thankful that he has put us all through the training with OSA University. Really just to bring awareness to what dangers occur when someone has an obstructed airway, especially not just in adults but in children. I think going forward just learning and being able to teach our patients and give them the best possible care, we can hopefully show our patients that we are in this to be the best provider we can, not just for their mouth but their whole body.
We decided we wanted to help people with sleep apnea or sleep airway problems. I signed on with OSA University to right from the start get all my staff educated. The OSA University online process allowed our staff to train whenever we had downtime at the office. In 8 weeks we had everybody up on the same educational level as well as myself. We learned how to communicate properly with patients to show concern and that we truly want to help treat patients and offer a life saving treatment, rather than “We have this appliance for sale”. I feel really good about were we are thanks to OSA University.
Hi I’m Dr. Lohner and I just wanted to give a shout out for OSA University. I have been trying to implement sleep medicine and sleep dentistry here into my office for quite some time. OSA University has the educational system in place to actually educate my team and to get them excited and to give us all the things that we need to be successful in treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea. I’m excited to work with them, we had a great experience and we look forward to treating many patients and to helping many people because of OSA University. Go OSA U!
Hi my name is Valerie Hubbell. I’m a general dentist in Grapevine, Texas. We just completed our eight hour OSA University Dental Sleep Medicine Team Training course. I cannot express how pleased we have been. My staff enjoyed the entire course. And they have the opportunity to review all the information presented in the online courses for at least a year. They are now very excited and confident about discussing sleep health with our patients and we look forward to working with OSA University going into the future, thank you.
