Sleep apnea dentists and physicians converge on San Antonio to continue their quest for better treatment options for sleep apnea.

Online PR News – 27-May-2010 – – On June 4th, dentists from all over the county and even internationally, will converge on San Antonio for the 19th annual meeting of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). The AADSM is an organization that promotes the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders such as sleep apnea, through the use of oral appliances and upper airway surgery.

The meeting is a scientific program that features presentation from dentists, physicians, researchers and other professionals in the sleep medicine arena. The meeting will also feature educational courses that will teach dentists of all experience levels in dental sleep medicine. The keynote speaker is Dr. Allan Pack, a well-renowned expert in sleep apnea research and treatment.

“I’m looking forward to being exposed to new ideas and to collaborate with my colleagues from other states,” says Corpus Christi sleep apnea dentist, Dr. Don Lowrance, “Attending the AADSM meeting is an investment in my practice and in the health of my present and future patients. I wouldn’t miss it.”

“I am a member of both the AADSM and the AASM because I believe that it is extremely important for sleep physicians and sleep apnea dentists to work together to create the best treatment plan for our patients,” said Dr. Lowrance.

The AADSM meeting runs through June 6 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
