From Apnea to Zzzzz: Pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing

This year's Symposium took place virtually on Zoom on Saturday, October 23.

This course was designed to provide dental professionals a clear understanding of how oral-related factors contribute to pediatric sleep-disordered breathing. The overarching goals were a focus on early intervention, the signs of dysfunction, and when to refer the patients out. Attendees gained knowledge in the area of orofacial myofunctional disorders and their effects on the soft tissue complex, airway, craniofacial, and dental development in children.

CE Units:
Attendees received six (6) CEUs
PLUS: Voucher for a free home study on Pediatric Feeding for an additional two (2) CEUs

Brian Hockel, DDS – General Dentist
Sarah Hornsby, RDH – Myofunctional Therapist
Christine Nguyen, OTD, OTR/L – Occupational Therapist
Tracy Tran, DDS – Pediatric Dentist 


An additional two (2) CEUs were available for free for attendees of this event in the form of a home study. This course features pediatric feeding and how it affects oral development.

Throughout the Symposium, there were door prizes from our sponsors Orascoptic, Young Dental and HuFriedyGroup .
