How is sleep apnea diagnosed?

This question was asked in Lino Lakes, Minnesota on 01/27/2015.
I know previously that dentists could not diagnose sleep apnea. However, now in 2015, I hear that there are some states that allow this. Is this true? How would a dentist be able to tell if someone has sleep apnea?

We have a proprietary scan that accurately identifies and quantifies an airway.
