Dr. Kent Smith DDS, President of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA), works at promoting the dental sleep industry by providing dentists with his knowledge of treating patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea through use of oral appliance therapy. His mission to build and support a community of dentists dedicated to enhancing the lives of others is what has been the driving force behind his biggest annual event, known as “The Roundtable”, which has been running seven years strong.
The Roundtable provides a rare opportunity to learn from the best in both formal lectures and informal conversations. The weekend event has seen over 2,000 dentists learn how to successfully add sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment to their practices using hands on programs. Although 2017’s meeting took place exactly one month after the ASBA’s Sleep and Wellness Conference, dentists who attended both the ASBA annual meeting and Dr. Smith’s Roundtable said they were “glad they went to both meetings” due to the different value each held.
The ASBA showcases a very nuts and bolts practice management style program. It’s topics range from Medical Billing “Explained” for Dentists, Working with Physicians, Proving Compliance in customer oral devices, getting credentials, building your dream team in dental sleep medicine, what % should sleep be in your practice to how do we grow our individual practices as well as our industry over the next 5-10 years!
