Overview of Session Training
Introduction to Adult Cases
In Session One, you and your staff are introduced to the fundamentals of craniofacial sleep medicine for adults. Your instructors have a wide variety of experience and advanced clinical knowledge. In this first session you will begin to understand how to identify medically compromised patients and you will be introduced to proper clinical protocols.
The How + Why
Session two provides a foundation in sleep medicine and the craniofacial origins of an obstructed airway. In this session, we explore the “why”. We explore the connection between craniofacial developmental deficiencies and a compromised airway.
Session two introduces clinical procedures and protocols for pediatric cases. Finally, session two introduces you to adjusting and delivering appliances for patients of all ages.
Integrating The Vivos System Into Your Practice
Session three connects the dots. In this course, you will learn how to integrate The Vivos System into your practice. This course was developed by a team of top practice management consults and has been proven effective for hundreds of practices.
In this course you will learn how to ensure that each functional area inside your practice is successful.
Hey, don’t forget…
Each session is designed to build upon the last. To make sure you and your team have the best experience and outcome, we do require you take the courses in order.
Advanced Clinical Protocols
Session four is an advanced clinical course. This session provides an in-depth clinical understanding of what you will encounter as you treat patients. Instructors cover advanced topics including: advanced interpretation of cone beam computed tomography imaging (CBCT); clinical occlusion; an introduction to the benefits of myofunctional therapy; and finishing cases using orthodontic aligners and more.
Advanced Clinical Protocols II
Session five continues to build clinical aptitude and knowledge. In this advanced course instructors provide an overview of identifying and treating less common and often more complicated cases. In this course you will also have an introduction to other conditions your patients may be experiencing. Topics include: an intro to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD); the importance of sleep and sleep hygiene; an introduction to the role of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic intervention; and an introduction to working with your medical colleagues.
The ICSM staff and the staff at Vivos have developed a number of interactive courses to help you prepare for session training. These courses are available online. Our online learning platform offers a number of courses you should take before session training. These courses will introduce important terms and a variety of things to know before you begin session training.
You will also find a variety of elective courses and additional resources such as documents and forms inside our learning management portal.
Although we do assign courses to you in a specific order—you may take and retake these courses as many times as you want. If fact, I recommend it!
We’ve already assigned your Session One courses . Please ignore the Prexion and Trios courses if you do not use this equipment in your office.
