Sleep Apnea Accredited Dental Sleep Medicine Facility
To become accredited by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, (AADSM), a practice must meet high standards of proficiency, professionalism and exceptional therapeutic care for patients with sleep disordered breathing. Schellnoble Dentistry is the only AADSM accredited facility in New Hampshire.
So what exactly is AADSM Accreditation?
For a dental practice to become accredited they must excel in these three areas:
The practice must adhere to the standards for the appointment, responsibilities and continuing education of the staff including a Dental Director, Clinical Auxiliaries and Coding and Billing personnel.
Follow standards regarding safety, consumer service and follow-up to ensure patients receive optimal care.
Policies and procedures for accepting patients, documentation, patient treatment and billing must be developed and followed precisely.
