Identifying Sleep and Breathing Disorders

Event Details


Your chance to understand sleep and breathing disorders.

A study of a dental patient population found that approximately 30% of our patients have a high risk of mild to moderate sleep apnoea. Many practitioners feel unconfident in treating, let alone, talking about sleep disorders, airways and TMD. This deficit in our knowledge means countless patients suffering from these debilitating conditions fall through the gaps and don’t receive treatment.

Whether you’re a dental student keen to get ahead, a new graduate eager to catch up to speed, or an established dentist who’s always wondered about the world of sleep and airways, this live webinar is for you.


1.5 CPD with Dr Damian Teo | BHScDent MDent, PGDip (Dental Sleep Medicine)

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying signs/symptoms of sleep and breathing disorders (adults and children)

  • Communicating with your patients about sleep and breading disorders

  • Options for management, treatment, and referral (including to whom)

  • Practical tips to introduce sleep and breathing screening into your dental clinic


Dr Damian Teo | BHScDent MDent, PGDip (Dental Sleep Medicine)

Damian is a dentist with a focused interest in snoring, sleep disorders, teeth grinding, TMJ disorders, and airway focused orthodontics. In his dentistry, Damian is passionate about looking “beyond the mouth” and treating the body as a whole. He believes dentists play an important role in being able to recognize airway/breathing issues, sleeping problems, and craniofacial pain (such as headaches, neck pain, and TMJ disorders). This led him to undergo extensive postgraduate training with world renowned specialists in the field of sleep medicine and TMJ disorders.

Damian is a member of the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA), and has a Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine with the University of Western Australia. He also worked in Darwin’s first official TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre, where he exclusively treated patients for snoring, sleep apnoea, teeth grinding, and TMD. Damian understands the value in working with skilled allied health practitioners outside of dentistry. He has presented talks and held seminars to medical and dental professionals to spread the knowledge that dentists can help one’s health and quality of life “beyond the mouth.”
