Becoming a Diplomate

Demonstrate excellence by becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine

Becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine is an important way to demonstrate your clinical knowledge and experience in the provision of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. The ABDSM publishes guidelines that outline all the rules and requirements for earning and maintaining Diplomate status.
