The American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA) continues to forge new ground in dental sleep medicine.
David Gergen and the team will be in Dallas, TX on May 17, 2017 to meet with executives overseeing a hospital chain made up of 16 hospitals regarding a groundbreaking program in sleep dentistry. In addition, the meeting will include NFL Hall of Fame running back and “Prince of Texas” Earl Campbell who will be involved in doing advertisements for the program. The hospitals are now going to, when medically indicated, send for oral appliance therapy (OAT) as the first line of defense in treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
The program, which will be operated by Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) and the ASBA, is going to integrate sleep dentists into hospitals. The only sleep dentists allowed to be included in the program by the hospitals will be ASBA members due to the higher standards of excellence that is a direct result of ASBA training. A key component of the program is the process which the dentists will be paid – the hospitals will bill insurance on behalf of the dentists to ensure higher reimbursements. This is another reason why ASBA members will become the top sleep dentists of the country in coming years.
