- In May 2021, the Company completed an underwritten follow-on offering of 4,600,000 shares of its common stock and the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares, for net proceeds of $25.4 million;
- Also in May, the Company’s Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. G. Dave Singh, DMD, Ph.D., DDSc., released a new book titled Pneumopedics and Craniofacial Epigenetics to help doctors and dentists better understand how to address underlying craniofacial conditions that affect a patient’s overall airway, breathing and sleep health;
- Subsequent to quarter end, in July, the Company unveiled new data from an independent patient survey related to its proprietary Vivos treatment, showing nearly 97% of patients surveyed said that they had achieved their desired outcome from the Vivos treatment for their OSA;
- Also in July, the Company announced results from a national study commissioned by the Company to assess patients’ airway function and OSA symptoms after undergoing the Vivos treatment. In the study, 28 percent of the 74 adult patients treated with the Company’s FDA Class 1 DNA appliance for certain orofacial anomalies reported no remaining OSA symptoms; and
- Later in July, Vivos announced the opening of The Vivos Institute training center in Denver, Colorado. This 15,000-square-foot facility was established to provide advanced post-graduate education and training to dentists, dental teams and other healthcare providers from around the world in a live and hands-on setting.
“There are a number of key positive takeaways from our second quarter results,” said R. Kirk Huntsman, Vivos’ Chairman and CEO. “First, we achieved strong revenue results ahead of our internal forecasts and analysts’ estimates, although the year over year comparisons are somewhat augmented due to the impact of COVID last year.”
“Second, we have continued to focus on strategic sales and marketing initiatives, designed to introduce more healthcare and dental professionals to the benefits of the Vivos System. Chief among these initiatives was the launch of our VivoScore sleep apnea test, which our VIPs have utilized nearly 2,000 times with patients since launch. In a sample survey of nearly 60 VIP practices that converted over to VivoScore as their primary home sleep apnea test, the total number of VivoScore sleep tests performed was up over 300% versus prior period testing with alternative sleep apnea test technologies. This remarkable surge in sleep apnea testing means more dentists and sleep physicians are having dialogues with more candidates for Vivos System. It remains to be seen just how many of these patients will eventually start treatment with the Vivos System, but we are closely monitoring this process and working with dentists to help close cases where appropriate. Our business model is centered on treating sleep apnea via the dental community, and we believe more dentists talking with their patients about sleep apnea, and testing patients for sleep apnea, will lead to more dentists signing up as VIPs and more case starts with the Vivos System. Our second quarter results reflect the impact of these measures when compared to first quarter, with growing enrollments by new VIP dentists and sequential increases of 25% and 34% for products and services revenue, respectively. These strong results demonstrate the continuing recognition and adoption of the Vivos System by the dental community with growing awareness and support from medical doctors and other healthcare providers.”
“Third, in addition to our core business of enrolling new VIPs and increasing sales of appliances, we have begun to see revenue from other sources we have implemented, including from our recently launched MyoCorrect orofacial myofunctional therapy service and the beginnings of management fee revenue from our Medical Integration Division as well as some revenue from VivoScore (which we view principally as a marketing tool). While we just introduced these new revenue lines, demand has already surpassed our original expectations. Based on this, we believe these areas represent meaningful upside to our revenue potential as they build further momentum throughout the second half of this year and beyond. What’s more, we are constantly looking to develop new potential revenue sources as the good word spreads about Vivos and the Vivos System (as evidenced by our recently released patient data).”
“Fourth, we have recently begun an active outreach to the DSO industry. DSOs, or Dental Support Organizations, own and operate thousands of dental practices throughout the U.S. and Canada. Very few DSOs have successfully implemented a dental sleep management program, although several have tried. Our management team’s extensive DSO experience gives us a huge advantage in penetrating this market. Not only do we personally know the key players, but we have also specifically designed our model to seamlessly integrate and thrive within the corporate DSO environment. The initial response from the DSO community has been extremely positive, and we are working very closely with a number of these companies to initiate pilot tests within certain target markets.”
“In sum, we believe that the continuing formulation and implementation of our growth plans, supported by our augmented balance sheet after our follow-on public offering during the second quarter, leave us well placed to continue our growth during the balance of 2021 and into the following year. One cautionary note to our realization of these objectives would be the impact and disruption in dental patient access or uncertainty caused by a resurgence of COVID, which we are monitoring daily.”

She serves on the Founding Board of the American Board Physician Specialties in Integrative Medicine and is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of California, San Diego. In addition to her responsibilities related to Vivos’ first Pneusomnia Center, Dr. Guarneri duties for the Company include the promotion and expansion of the Company’s Medical Integration Division.
On May 11, 2021, Vivos closed an underwritten follow-on public offering of 4,600,000 shares of its common stock. The offering consisted of 4,000,000 shares of its common stock, as well as an additional 600,000 shares pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of common stock, at a public offering price of $6.00 per share. The aggregate gross proceeds to Vivos from the public offering was $27.6 million prior to deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and other estimated offering expenses.
In July, the Company unveiled new data from an independent patient survey related to its proprietary Vivos treatment, showing nearly 97% of patients surveyed said that they had achieved their desired outcome from Vivos System treatment for their OSA. Other key findings included:
- Over half (63%) of patients surveyed said that they rely on the advice of their dentist to find a lasting solution that addresses the root cause of their OSA; and
- Nearly one-third (29%) of patients surveyed said that they searched for non-surgical alternatives to current standards of care for treating OSA.
Also in July, Vivos announced results from a national study commissioned by Vivos to assess patients’ airway function and OSA symptoms after undergoing the Vivos treatment. In the study, 28% of 74 adult patients treated with the Company’s FDA Class 1 DNA appliance for certain orofacial anomalies reported no remaining OSA symptoms, which is defined as patients having an Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) score of less than five post-treatment. This real world patient data was gathered from multiple sites and has been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be used as part of the Company’s process for obtaining 510k clearance for the DNA appliance to treat mild-to-moderate OSA.
On July 29, 2021, the Company announced the opening of The Vivos Institute training center in Denver, Colorado. The 15,000-square-foot facility was established to provide advanced post-graduate education and training to dentists, dental teams and other healthcare providers from around the world in a live and hands-on setting. The Institute’s emphasis will be on educating healthcare providers about OSA and Vivos’ treatments for OSA within their practice areas, along with training on Vivos’ related practice management tools for dentists.
