Transforming a Generation: Diagnosing & Treating Airway & Sleep Problems in Pediatric Patients

World leaders in the diagnoses and treatment of sleep disordered breathing and airway will convene to address the most crucial of patients… The pediatric population.

Sleep Disordered Breathing can be prevented, avoided & sometimes cured in pediatric patients yet the access to qualified care is limited.  Please join Dr. Daniel Klauer from the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre in welcoming key opinion leaders and experts to impact a generation to come.
