In this episode, Hallie talks with Kalli Hale, DDS, MPH, AFAAID all about airway centric dentistry and how to implement it into your practice. She gives great tips that the RDH and/or Dentist can use to screen and assess the patients already sitting in the exam chair. Dr. Hale discusses the signs and symptoms of sleep disordered breathing and obstructive sleep apnea in both adults and children. Both Dr. Hale and Hallie promote the need for pediatric airway screenings and the necessity for teachers and parents to be knowledgeable about what to look for so they know when to refer to an airway centric dentist.
