Dentists were split right down the middle when it comes to screening dental patients for sleep problems. Half said they do, and half said they don’t.

“I wish everyone screened for this, and every course I teach emphasizes this,” said one doc.

Here are some other comments:

  • “I see a couple of hundred sleep patients yearly. Patient value averages $3000-3500 on sleep, but they also lead to many TMJ cases as well as full-mouth reconstructions.” (Illinois dentist)
  • “I include specific screening questions in my health history.” (North Carolina dentist)
  • “If you are treating sleep apnea you need to be well-versed and have networks with local physicians established.” (Illinois dentist)
  • “Sleep studies need to be done on moderate and severe cases.” (Tennessee dentist)
  • “Very hard to get insurance coverage. Very successful treatment.” (California orthodontist)
