What our past students are saying about the
Dental Sleep Medicine Mini Residency
"Dental sleep medicine is here to stay. This is such an important course to do if you genuinely want to positively impact the overall health of your patients, not only their mouth. Modern medicine is heading down the path of personalised and integrative care, whereby we realise the interconnectedness of the body. When your eyes have been opened to this way of practicing, you will see it truly changes the lives of both children and adults in ways never imagined. With Derek dedicating much of his professional life to this area, holding a degree in sleep medicine and a PhD on this topic, he is one of the best to teach this area."
-Dr Andrew Bachour, Dentist
"Doing the Dental sleep Medicine course with EODO has educated me on how I can treat our patients better. It has enabled me to become an integral part of a team that identifies Bruxism, Sleep Bruxism, patient s who suffer mild, moderate, or severe sleep disturbed breathing, sleep apnoea. I can now identify people, both children and adults, who are predisposed to sleep problems and upper airway restrictions. Most patients don't even realise their sleep is the main cause to ill health, malocclusion, grinding teeth, ADHD, chewing and swallowing dysfunctions.
I have been able to develop a comprehensive medical history form that alerts our dental team that our patients may be experiencing sleep problems. A comprehensive template for extra - oral and intra - oral examinations.
We use AER sleep for our sleep studies and Chris Kelly (CEO) who is a sleep scientist is always willing to help. Dr Geof Williams and Chris Kelly give detailed reports for the sleep bruxism and treatment planning for all patients sleep treatment.
Since completing the Dental sleep medicine course I have continued to study with EODO to learn more about Airway Orthodontics and Oral myology.
I am very grateful for having the opportunity to be taught by Dr Derek Mahony and his valuable and experienced team. Dr Mahony is the most passionate, knowledgeable educator I have had the pleasure of being lectured by.
I now have patients being referred to me by speech pathologists, GP's, Chiropractors, physiotherapist, ENT's, and our word-of-mouth referrals has grown as well.
As I am a hygienist all my diagnostics, reports, referrals, and treatment outcomes are approved and reviewed by my principal dental practitioner.
I hope this helps people to choose to further their careers. So grateful I did, I love being able to improve people's health outcomes."
