An Intimate Conversation on Sleep with Dr John Remmers
05/06/2020 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PMFree
This webinar will be slightly more unique than our standard. This will be a conversation with sleep medicine pioneer, Dr. John Remmers, on the history and evolution of sleep apnea, diagnosis, and treatment. Dr. Remmers will answer the million-dollar question “what will it take to have oral appliance a Gold Standard alternative to CPAP.” What’s missing in the industry today to have more physicians prescribe OAT? What needs to be done to move the conversation forward? Attendees will also learn a different approach to the conventional way of administering oral appliance therapy. Join us on this webinar for an in-depth discussion with one of the most respected innovators in sleep medicine.
