 Dr. Sonia Aykroyd on Learning as You Go

This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Sonia Aykroyd, an exemplary dentist and talented Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).

Dr. Aykroyd is originally from Brazil and has over 34 years of experience in dentistry. Her clinic, the Visage Wellness Institute in Sao Paulo, offers not only traditional dentistry but sleep apnea treatment as well. “My major interest in sleep disorders actually started a while back when I was personally diagnosed with sleep apnea. When I picked it up, it was already severe, and the thing is, I’ve been really looking, searching for an answer,” she shared.

Sleep apnea is a global epidemic. The danger lies not only in the condition itself but also in the comorbidities, including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and certain types of cancers. “I feel guilty if I just go and do fillings when I should be doing more to help people out there who could be having their life expectancy reduced by 10 years because they have sleep apnea,” shared Dr. Moore.

As for her experience with Vivos, she shared that “the amount of training they give you, I’ve never seen any company like this. I have no financial interest, but I tell you, this is so amazing, and it’s so rewarding. We get so much support. You don’t need to be an expert, because Vivos turns you into an expert.”

And actually, I was the one who found Vivos. As you know, apnea can lead to heart conditions, other issues in the body, diabetes eh, Alzheimer’s, etc. You don’t sleep well. Cancer is linked to sleep apnea, but now think about it, who is being able to actually treat is dentists. And I say, I feel guilty if I just go and do fillings when I should be doing more to help people out there who could be having their life expectancy reduced by ten years because they have sleep apnea.
