“It does help generate more additional income to the office, but it really helps improve your understanding of what you’re already doing as a dentist.”

Dr. Paul Lawrence on Increasing Revenue and Becoming a Better Dentist
Dr. Lawrence first heard about Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. through a trusted friend. Airway dentistry had already piqued his interest, as he often liked to stay at the forefront of new science and technology, but it was a recommendation to check out Vivos that led him to implement it in his practice. “At the time, I was already looking into airway, treating patients with mandibular advancement devices, and him talking to me about Vivos was kind of the next step in looking for a solution to help patients that did not necessarily involve a CPAP machine,” shared Dr. Lawrence.
Once he dove in, Dr. Lawrence realized that getting ample and adequate sleep is essential to living a full and happy life. Sleep-disordered breathing is related to many daily symptoms and comorbidities, such as depression, exhaustion, confusion, irritability, and more. “A key part is getting them to be able to breathe through their nose,” he shared. Nasal breathing is essential to functioning at an optimal level, as the air is heated, humidified, and filtered before passing into the lungs, versus breathing it directly in through the mouth. Dental professionals can educate their patients on this fact with Vivos and train them to breathe more effectively.
“If I were to tell somebody else who was considering Vivos, I would say do it. It does help generate more additional income to the office, but it really helps improve your understanding of what you’re already doing as a dentist, which in turn helps you be a better provider and a better dentist to your patients.”
