Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) - the role of the dentist and pharmacist

We want you to know sleep, so we provide on-demand training and 1-2-1 coaching to develop and enable you to be an informed member of the sleep-patient care team. We know you're crazy busy so by providing our training on-line and on-demand we can make interesting CPD fit around you.

How does it work?

The course makes you feel you are in a one-to-one with a helpful and skilled teacher. It does this using short video lessons — many learners really like these.

  • Background knowledge of sleep-related breathing disorders associated with snoring
  • Knowledge of the signs and symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders
  • Ability to recognise those that require further investigation
  • [For dentists] Knowledge of how to get the protrusive 'Bite' right to be able to prescribe an Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD)

  • [For dentists] Knowledge of how to build your dental sleep practice
  • Enhanced CPD at your pace, to fit around your schedule
  • Ongoing support from your instructor and peers, in a private FaceBook group
 

With access to all the above, again and again, whenever you choose, we're confident you will know sleep. (FYI course enrolments do expire after 12mths) but your membership of the Facebook group remains.

The course will allow you to:

  • Fit your learning around your other responsibilities
  • Work at your own pace
  • Re-do any parts you want, as often as you want (within your 12mth enrolment)
  • Focus on the areas that you want

“I’ve no hesitation in recommending the Snorer.training Academy – convenient, well designed course with great support from Adrian. Interesting to expand my knowledge into a new area of dentistry and be able to offer a new health treatment for my patients.”

Lucy S. Dentist

“I’d highly recommend Adrian Zacher and the Snorer.training course. His course is efficient and very clear. As a dentist, I have many patients and a surprisingly high demand for treatment of snoring. It was very useful for me to begin sharing information on snoring, and to gain confidence in starting treatment.”

DENTISTS: Learn How and When to prescribe anti-snoring devices (MADs)

Dental devices also help people medically diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea/apnea (OSA)

Who should enrol?

Dentists, GPs and members of the dental team.
The course is specifically aimed at dentists. However, we would also encourage members of the dental team to enrol, because we recognise the vital role they play encouraging snorers (and their partners) to take action.


We welcome GPs, to enhance their knowledge of sleep-related breathing disorders and to build relationships with sleep-trained dentists, who in the United Kingdom, are able to:

  • Screen for OSA
  • Recognise OSA symptoms that require further investigation
  • Identify snorers (without consuming NHS diagnostic resource)
  • Offer benign snorers first-line therapy (a Mandibular Advancement Device)


Important note:
Unlike others, we are not a manufacturer of anti-snoring devices. So, you'll get the full, independent picture...

I train healthcare professionals how to help their patients stop snoring; sleep and breathe at the same time. Many of my customers find their work so rewarding they limit their practice to it.

25 years in the sleep business, yet I am NOT a pharmacist, dentist nor a doctor. I am however, an instructor, inventor, author, market access business consultant, car enthusiast, amateur cook and proud Dad to 2 fab kids.
