Sleep Physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. A referral from a GP or other specialist is required before an appointment can be made.
These services include ENT surgeons, physiotherapist and sleep equipment suppliers. ASA recommends that individuals have seen a sleep physician, and have a referral, or prescription before using these supplementary sleep services.
These dentists are members of ASA and have an interest in the fitting of Oral Appliances for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing and snoring. It is recommended that individuals have seen a sleep specialist to ensure this is the most appropriate treatment, prior to having an oral appliance fitted. Referral to a sleep specialist can be organised by a dentist but ordering a sleep study needs to be done via your general medical practitioner.
