World Dentofacial Sleep Society is developing programs in several core areas that advance its mission.


WDSS provides specialized education for the dentofacial sleep medicine field. Topics generally include oral appliances, combination therapies, treatment for sleep apnea, and pediatric treatment options. 

WDSS successfully held an in-person meeting this past October 2023 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This meeting featured a full day of scientific presentations, industry updates, and a social dinner all included in registration. 

The WDSS scientific meeting was the first day of a three-day track of dental sleep courses and presentations planned in coordination with World Sleep Society at the World Sleep congress.   

WDSS is now organizing a second in-person meeting in San Francisco over November 7 – 10, 2024. 

In addition, online course and seminar content is under development and will be provided during the 2024 membership year. 


WDSS is developing a speaker’s bureau and other media resources to better enable public understanding of sleep health and disorders. WDSS will also participate in sleep and health awareness events like World Sleep Day. 


WDSS offers a variety of benefits to its members. Benefits and member types can be found on the individual membership page
