Dental Sleep Solutions announced a strategic partnership with Sleeptest.com. The goal is to create a streamlined home sleep test model for dental sleep medicine practices across the United States. This model could lead to easier access, faster results, cost savings, and improved health for millions of Americans who suffer from undiagnosed sleep apnea.
Helping Dentists Treat Sleep Apnea
Dentists have the ability to turn the tide against the epidemic of sleep apnea. Dentists can quickly and effectively treat sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy. This draws off strengths in the dental specialty at providing other custom oral appliances like mouth guards, bite guards, and oral splints. Swelling membership in the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) shows that dentists are willing and eager to step up to help their patients. However, their ability to treat patients has been stifled by barriers to getting patients tested for sleep apnea.
The partnership between Dental Sleep Solutions and Sleeptest.com hopes to break through this barrier. The goal is to create a seamless sleep test solution that provides rapid sleep tests for patients to get tested in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Patients can use their insurance to help cover the cost, and they get a full diagnosis accompanied by treatment recommendations from board-certified sleep physicians.
President and CEO of Sleeptest.com, Ryan Javanbakht, sees the advantages of the combination. He says, “It’s a privilege to align with a like-minded organization who shares similar values and missionーputting the patient first and creating new opportunities for dentists and patients alike. Together we work relentlessly to have a positive impact on the sleep medicine field and minimize barriers to treatment.”
Software Integration for Speed and Efficiency
The DS3 system also makes it easier for dentists to order home sleep tests from Sleeptest.com. With this integration, dentists can order a sleep test with the click of a button and the results of the sleep test are uploaded to the dentist’s system once they’re available. This makes it much more efficient for a dental practice to offer sleep tests.
Jason Tierney, COO of Dental Sleep Solutions states, “DS3 has a network of hundreds of Dental Sleep Medicine providers across the country and all have a desire to increase access to care and improve patient outcomes. Our partnership with SleepTest.com directly satisfies these goals. The streamlined workflow ensures that dentists and their teams can provide the necessary testing services to obtain a proper diagnosis by minimizing the typical roadblocks that inhibit patients’ access to care. DS3’s ease of use and SleepTest.com’s emphasis on communication and responsiveness make this a win-win for patients and providers.”
