Course Presenters and Description:
Taught by Board Certified ASBA Instructors Dr. Shad Morris DMD, Dr. Dave Singh and Dr. Rudi M-Ferrate MD, – Review Course for ASBA Diplomate Certification
- The American Board of Sleep and Breathing (ABSB) is an independent organization that provides a Diplomate designation for dentists who provide evidence of knowledge and skill in the provision of oral appliance therapy for sleep and breathing disorders.
- The American Board of Sleep and Breathing (ABSB) is a collective of physician and dentist contributors who provide their expertise and experience in developing and applying testing/evaluation of dentists seeking recognition for their education in sleep medicine and their expertise in provision of oral appliance therapy for sleep and breathing disorders.
- The mission of the ABSB is to provide physician colleagues and the public with knowledgeable and skilled dental practitioners in the field of sleep medicine through the process of Diplomate designation.
- The ABSB developed as an independent entity from the American Sleep and Breathing Academy. Diplomate status with the ABSB does not represent a specialty in medicine or dentistry, nor does it grant or imply any legal qualification, privilege or license to practice. Instead, it recognizes those dentists, licensed by law in their state, who have met the ABSB guidelines.
Dr. Morris began observing the toll that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was taking on the oral health of his patients. In particular a friend and dental patient whom he treated suddenly passed away in his sleep from obstructive sleep Apnea one night due to not wearing his CPAP.
Dr. Morris decided he wanted to help save lives through treating OSA. In taking many continuing education courses on OSA, along with the trained staff, Premier Sleep Solutions is now saving lives daily. His involvement in sleep medicine turned from primarily screening for sleep apnea to now having very close relationships with sleep physicians and allied health professionals in the community in treating this disease.

His goal is to find ways to permit the body to utilize its own healing processes and diminish the need for synthetic pharmaceuticals.
