Listen to this webinar:

Considering a shift from restorative dentistry? Tired of drills, fillings, and that ever-present backache? Dive into the world of sleep dentistry with our dynamic panel webinar. No crowns, no complaints—just sleep.

Why go sleep-only?

Transitioning means more than escaping the drill—it’s about embracing a specialized, impactful niche. By addressing sleep disorders, you not only elevate patients’ health but also revitalize your work-life balance. The rising demand in this field promises a lucrative horizon, all while fostering enriched collaborations with physicians. It’s not merely a shift; it’s a professional evolution.

As a restorative dentist, you’ve got questions:

  • What is the start-up cost?
  • Is sleep-only financially viable?
  • How do I get patients?
  • Where do I find physician referrals?

Watch as our panelists share their experience of how they made the PIVOT to sleep-only!
