Course Overview

In line with the mission of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine being global leaders in dental education we are growing internationally. Our first global summit is this week and many other international courses are coming up this fall. The Tufts Dental Sleep Medicine Global Summit aims to bring to Talloires, France a group of leaders and emerging leaders in the field of Dental Sleep representing different countries to discuss the most relevant issues related to the teaching and practice of dental sleep medicine. Additional key leaders from around the world will engage in discussions online to share their experiences, exchange ideas, and share their needs to expand the field in their respective countries. Best practices will be shared along with the exchange of the latest research and clinical expertise in the field in different continents.As part of this summit, we are inviting you to join in a set of lectures from some of our participating leaders! It is estimated that approximately 1 billion people around the globe suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The cummulative long-term effects of untreated sleep disorders have been associated with an extensive range of health consequences. Awareness of the global burden of OSA among the general public and health care professionals is needed. This cooperative work is aimed at amplifying education in somnology, sleep disorders, dental sleep medicine, and holistic patient care. By collaborating with universities and dental associations around the world, we can bring continuing education to where the needs are.
