Discover the Proven Blueprint for Success in Dental Sleep Medicine
The Sleep Practice Blueprint Event is a multi-day training in the BUSINESS of dental sleep medicine. Yes, you’ll learn about the science of sleep. But that’s just the beginning.
The rest of the time is used to cover the entire system we use to basically turn the traditional dental sleep medicine model upside down.
This is called a Blueprint, because that’s exactly what it is. We will SHOW YOU the entire process, step-by-step, and have you in a room long enough that we can clearly and meticulously explain every part of the system we’ve taught to some of the most successful dental sleep medicine practice owners in the country.
What we cover during this event is not something you will find anywhere else. No one else could present this to you because no one else KNOWS IT.
We’ve pioneered a complete system for getting sleep patients, getting paid and everything in between. You’ll learn every single detail at the Blueprint Event.
But it’s not just hearing about it – at this event, you have the option to actually see it in action. Peek over the shoulder at Dr. Brandon Hedgecock’s Sleep Better Austin or at Dr. Chad Denman’s Sleep Cycle Center the day before the event to see how a 7-figure sleep-only practice operates in real life.

Can YOU Build a Sleep Practice?
The IAOS Sleep Practice Blueprint event will walk you through every step of practicing dental sleep medicine the smart way. We’ll cover oral appliances, patient screening, patient acquisition, and we’ll go into extreme detail on how to get paid handsomely for each patient.
In the end, you’ll know exactly what it takes to build a successful sleep practice. The reality is most dentists fail to make sleep a viable part of their business, and that’s because the traditionally-taught approach fails. At the Sleep Practice Blueprint, we teach you our entire business model, including the details, facts, and figures so you can see proof for yourself this thing WORKS.
These Sleep Practice Blueprint events are an educational and low-risk way to SHOW you how this works. And depending on how things go, you might end up transforming your future in the process.
What You’ll Learn at This Event
The IAOS Business Model
Learn, in extreme detail, every component of the business model over 180 IAOS Members are using to generate and endless stream of physician-diagnosed sleep apnea patients in their practices. This is a dramatically different process than simply generating referrals from sleep physicians – your new business will create a pool of tested and physician-diagnosed patients.
Our Proven 27-Step Reimbursement Process
Most dentists struggle to get reimbursed by medical insurance as much as they should, if they even get reimbursed at all. The secret to medical insurance reimbursement is an immense amount of documentation – and we’ve whittled that down to a 27 step process which will ensure you are paid an average of $3,000 per patient, every single time.
Legal, Business, and Insurance Frameworks
The IAOS model requires two brand-new businesses that do not exist today. While your dental practice can be a key feeder for your sleep practice, you need to keep sleep separate. We show you the business frameworks required to ensure full legal compliance, maximum insurance reimbursement, and future business sale potential.
Fundamentals of Dental Sleep Medicine and Oral Appliances
Learn all the basic science of dental sleep medicine and an intro to oral appliances from Dr. Brandon Hedgecock. Brandon is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) and a Diplomate of American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. He has also achieved Diplomate Status with the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.

What People Are Saying
Over 180 dentists have adopted the IAOS model to build a successful sleep business
Today, I rent two operatories two days a month, and other than my beautiful wife, my only other payroll is a chairside assistant that only gets paid for two days a month. With this low overhead we’re able to help 15-20 patients a month with an average net of $4,000 an appliance.
IAOS is like anything else in life: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. If you’re going to join, go at full steam and take advantage of everything that is offered through the organization and you will succeed.
Once I made the decision to hang up the handpiece, I was 100% all-in and I have no regrets at all. I never would have done that without IAOS guiding me in that direction. Today, we’re up to just over 20 appliances a month, and we’re planning on ramping that up quite a bit.

Our Promise to You
While we could never guarantee that a two day dental sleep medicine course will make all of your wildest dreams come true, we can certainly guarantee that you will leave the event knowing more than 99.9% of dentists know about how to truly succeed in dental sleep medicine.
What you do with that knowledge from there will be up to you. Some dentists simply go on their way and return to traditional dentistry. A fair amount, however, choose to enroll in the four-year Dental Sleep MBA™ program and get our guidance, systems and support to build a successful dental sleep medicine practice.
You have two choices: close the page and continue down the dentistry path, or take a 100% risk-free weekend trip and see what this is all about.
