jim papadopoulos
Dr Papadopoulos is one of Australia's leading sleep medicine physicians and is widely known for his work with sleep studies in children, and in particular children with AD/HD special needs, orthodontic problems, gastro-intestinal issues and need for CPAP therapy.

Dr Papadopoulos was admitted to FRACP in General Paediatrics in 2002.
In 2003 he became the first prospectively accredited Level 2 Paediatric sleep physician in Australasia (highest possible level).

He then established the Paediatric Sleep Unit at St George Private Hospital.
This continues to be the only Private Hospital Paediatric Sleep Unit in NSW to offer ASA/NATA accredited Paediatric Sleep Laboratory services including diagnostic studies and CPAP. Our first-in-Sydney ASA / NATA accreditation for these services, including a commendation for our CPAP service, makes us unique amongst paediatric sleep laboratories in Sydney.

Dr Papadopoulos also established Australia’s first multidisciplinary Sleep Clinic for developmentally delayed children, the adolescent sleep unit at St George Hospital and the first paediatric sleep clinic within the Department of Orthodontics at Sydney Dental Hospital.

Growth, Sleep and Pain. What can go wrong?
and What to do about it? 
SYDNEY, MARCH 19TH - 21ST 2021
Facial pain is a complex topic. Look, Listen and Learn 
from world class educators. 

The beginning and the end are very important parts of any endeavour. And when we are talking about the adventure that is life we really want to get it right. But sometimes, even with the best of intentions and the greatest efforts, things do go wrong, and then we have to work out how to fix it.
  
As dentists our role in this saga is to safeguard craniofacial development and growth. Failure to do so results in immediate changes to facial appearance and function, and we are trained to deal with that. But what happens in the future? We know that disorders like sleep apnoea, insomnia and headache make their first appearances during early childhood. What are the critical factors that lead to this? Which conditions can we affect as dentists? What is it that we have to do? How much success can we expect to have?

This conference tells the story. It’s an incredible journey from embryology to childhood. Adolescence to adulthood. We will trace the origins, development and treatment of airway, sleep disorders and pain. We hope to share it with you next year, March 19-21, 2021.
