Q: If I want to stay up on current literature, what journal/source do you recommend?
Dr. Smith: I get asked this question often, and it isn’t easy to answer. The only ones for dentists are Dialogue (worthless) and Sleep & Breathing (compilation of research that’s fairly relevant). Sleep Review (www.SleepReviewMag.com) is the easiest to read and provides interesting insight and well-written articles. Sleep Diagnosis and Therapy (www.SleepDT.com) is written for the diagnostic community, but has an interesting perspective from the tech field. The Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (www.aasmnet.org) is more research, and is the official publication of the sleep MDs organization (AASM). Sleep (www.JournalSleep.org) is a combination project of the AASM and the Sleep Research Society, and has the best research, IMO.
That’s about it. You get most of these after joining various organizations, but I am unsure if you can get them separately. You asked which one I would pick, but it would have to be a tie between Sleep and Sleep Review. If you want to narrow your reading to what specifically applies to dentistry, I would have to say Sleep & Breathing.
