LONDON, ON - Local dentist Brock Rondeau, DDS recently received certification from the
American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM).
"The American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine congratulates Brock Rondeau, DDS on fulfilling the high standards required to receive certification through the ABDSM," said ABDSM President Jonathan Parker, DDS. "ABDSM certification signifies to patients, colleagues and professional organizations in both medicine and dentistry that Dr. Rondeau has met established qualifications and demonstrated a thorough understanding of oral appliance therapy."
To sit for the ABDSM certification examination, a licensed dentist must meet or exceed all eligibility criteria designated by the ABDSM for education, clinical experience and patient care. The ABDSM certification exam tests candidates on their broad understanding of oral appliance therapy, including treatment selection, proper fitting techniques and long-term follow-up care.
Dr. Rondeau practices at 1295 Highbury Ave., Suite C8, in London, ON.
Dentists with a broad understanding of oral appliance therapy work closely with board-certified sleep physicians to treat sleep-disordered breathing. An oral appliance that is custom-made and fit by a trained dentist is an effective treatment option for patients who have been diagnosed by a
sleep physician with primary snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
Established in 2004, the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) is an independent, nonprofit, self-designated board of examiners that certifies licensed dentists who treat sleep- disordered breathing with oral appliance therapy. Currently there are over 200 dentists nationwide who have earned certification from the ABDSM.
