Welcome to the Virginia Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
Dental Sleep Medicine is an area of practice that focuses on the management of sleep-related breathing disorders including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, with oral appliance therapy (OAT) and upper airway surgery. The Virginia Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine provides its members with educational opportunities and resources. Through hands-on workshops, clinical meetings, courses and collaborative meetings with our physician colleagues, members are introduced to leading-edge developments as related to oral appliance therapy (OAT). Administered only by trained dentists, custom-fit “mouth guard-like” devices are used in OAT to help patients to maintain an open, unobstructed airway during sleep.
