AADSM Launches Dental Sleep Medicine Facility Accreditation Program
AASM Weekly Update
Friday, March 25, 2011
The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) is accepting applications for its new Dental Sleep Medicine Facility Accreditation program. Facility accreditation is a voluntary process created to evaluate and recognize competency and delivery of optimal care to dental sleep medicine patients. Facilities that achieve accreditation illustrate to their patients, medical professionals and reimbursement decision-makers that they meet the high standards required to provide quality patient care.
Dental sleep medicine facilities that seek to earn accreditation through the AADSM must meet the quality measures outlined in the Standards for Accreditation of Dental Sleep Medicine Facilities, which aim to ensure that an accredited facility demonstrates proficiency, practice and professionalism regarding the treatment of patients with sleep-related breathing disorders. Application details and FAQ answers are available on the AADSM website.
