Do you want to be the dentist, in your area, to work with NFL greats?

The Pro Player Health Alliance works exclusively with members of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy. This ensures that the NFL greats will have the highest quality of care. The ASBA members are in a league above the rest. The American Sleep and Breathing Academy offers the highest levels of training. With its monthly study clubs, online webinars, and the world’s largest resource library in sleep medicine, ASBA gives its doctors all the resources they need to become the pillars of sleep practice in their community. The ASBA’s Executive Director, David Gergen, hand selects the dentists in each market that will participate in NFL screenings of former players. This project has been going on, successfully, for five years and has helped to catapult many practitioners sleep practices. For example, Dr. Harry Sugg in Dallas, TX. Harry was doing only 1-2 sleep cases per month until he joined the American Sleep and Breathing Academy. Dr. Sugg’s now treats Tony Dorsett, Michael Irvin, Eric Dickerson,  Derek Kennard, Derek KennardPreston Pearson,  Isiah Robertson and many more NFL greats. Sugg’s sleep practice became so busy he had to hire an associate to exclusively manage it. Harry is just one example of the many ASBA doctors who now have a thriving sleep practice as a result of membership in the American Sleep And Breathing Academy.

The conference will feature Dr. Rod Willey, the single most successful sleep apnea dentist in the industry. Rod holds the national record for billing 106 cases in a single month. The head of a 3.5 million dollar a year, stand alone, sleep practice, Rod is going to give you a step by step cook book for success.  Five years ago Dr. Willey was not doing Dental sleep medicine. He joined the ASBA and received study club training and the rewards are still paying off. By joining the ASBA, you could be the next Rod Willey. Remember, records are made to be broken.

Dr. Kent Smith, a dental sleep icon, sees the value in joining the American Sleep and Breathing Academy; an academy that is pro dental sleep medicine and pro oral appliance therapy. Dr. Smith has dedicated more than 20 years of his career to researching, analyzing and developing proven techniques in sleep medicine. He has treated more than 6,000 patients with sleep apnea, and his success is not a coincidence. In addition to being a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Smith is going to sit for the ASBA Diplomacy exam on April 18th at 8am. Which, of course, he will pass with flying colors since he is one of the foremost leading authorities on dental sleep medicine.

Congressman Marty Russo will be speaking on how oral appliance reimbursement is increasing with the U.S Government while C-PAP reimbursement has been decreased by another 25%. More importantly, he will be discussing what this means for the industry and how dentists will greatly prosper in the coming years.

Dr. Kevin Mueller, Sleep and TMD professor out of Midwestern University in Glendale Arizona, will teach you how to restore a sleep case, how to take a proper sleep bite and, through restorative dentistry, eliminate the need for oral appliances. His revolutionary process and successful outcomes have made Kevin one of the top sleep doctors in the world. This is a rare opportunity for you to learn from a true expert in the industry. His 30 years of experience, personally trained by Robert Rickets and Ed Spiegel, puts Kevin in a world of his own.

Chronic Care Management: what is it? 

For a dentist, it’s an opportunity to bring something to the physicians where they can have residual income and a built in mechanism for oral appliance therapy. The best way to ensure your success in chronic care is to attend the ASBA annual meeting, April 15th and 16th, and become an ASBA member.

What makes the ASBA different?

The ASBA is truly the cream of the crop when it comes to a dental sleep based academy. Our 700+ ASBA members are all being walked thru the process step by step to ensure they are ALL seeing a large number of oral appliance patients per month. How do we ensure this happens? The ASBA has study clubs that meet every other month. This helps to ensure that our members are learning from the most successful sleep dentists in the country. To be a mentor at one of these study clubs, you must have, at least, a 1.5 million dollar per year sleep practice. Having the opportunity to learn from these mentors at these study clubs helps to maximize your success.
