AUDIO - DUwHF #922 - Ken and Patty Berley
A graduate of University of Tennessee, College of Dentistry and UALR School of Law, Ken has practiced dentistry in Arkansas for over 35 years and practiced law for over 22 years. He is a member of the Bar in Arkansas and Texas. His dental interests vary, but over the past 10 years he has increasingly focused his practice on the treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing and TMD. He is the only DDS/JD/Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine in the world. This fact keeps him very busy lecturing and consulting on Oral Appliance Therapy and the successful implementation of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Ken is on the editorial board of Dental Sleep Practice Magazine and writes a legal column for each edition. His consent forms are widely used in dentistry and dental sleep medicine and are included in two of the major software programs for dental sleep medicine. He provides consulting services for various insurance companies and actively defends and consults dentists who are facing legal challenges.
Patty Berley has been the office manager for Ken for over 25 years and has gained a wealth of experience in the legal and managerial aspects of the practice of dentistry and Dental Sleep Medicine. She provides consulting and training services for dental offices in the implementation of dental sleep medicine focusing on the business team to screen and educate the patients on the serious health consequences of Obstructive Sleep Apnea as well as insurance and medical billing. Her prescription form for OSA has been approved by a representative from Medicare and is used in dental sleep medicine practices across the US.
