Prose. Pugs. Pronation. Pathology. Protrusion. Professional pursuits.
These words all describe interests of Jason Tierney.
Now, “Editor-in-Chief” can be added to the list.
Lisa Moler, founding CEO of Medmark Media, announced that effective November 1, 2019 Jason has been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Dental Sleep Practice magazine. Lisa states “Our entire Medmark/DSP team is thrilled for Jason to be joining us and we look forward to the knowledge, and energy he will bringing to our ongoing OSA mission.”
Upon appointment, Jason commented, “I am humbled to be named as the esteemed Dr. Steve Carstensen’s successor and honored to have this opportunity to play an integral role in DSP’s future. Unfortunately, the prevalence of Sleep Disordered Breathing continues to increase. Fortunately, the number of dental professionals and their medical colleagues tackling this crucial issue is growing. DSP has the potential to be the canonical journal of the profession. I intend to take the baton and run with it.”
For years Jason functioned as the specialty department Business Unit Leader at Keller Laboratories where he was fortunate to collaborate with numerous Dental Sleep Medicine (DSM) continuing education initiatives and learn from myriad key opinion leaders. While there he also helped to develop and bring multiple new products to market including various iterations of the NTI device and a custom fabricated FDA cleared device used for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
Over the past 5 years he’s served as Chief Operations Officer for Dental Sleep Solutions (DS3) where he cultivated relationships with a veritable Who’s Who of DSM while growing the company 10x, launching the North American Dental Sleep Medicine (NADSM) Symposium, and the Dental Sleep Medicine Insider journal.
After learning of Jason’s new role at Dental Sleep Practice, DSM mover and shaker, Dr. Erin Elliott stated, “In ten years of treating DSM in my general dentistry practice, I’ve found Jason Tierney to be the most knowledgeable expert non-dentist in the field. He personifies leadership and I value his practical insights which are always delivered with a bit of humor. He is a masterful wordsmith although I want to go on the record as stating that I did identify a typo in his writing ONCE.”
Jason aims to synthesize many of his passions into this exciting new role. From his dedication to continual learning and the discipline of running to his aptitude in DSM, vision for the future, and ability he’s demonstrated to produce results, he will prove to be an invaluable addition to the Dental Sleep Practice legacy. Jason has repeatedly exhibited a knack for bringing harmony to the disparate but vital voices in the DSM field at the annual NADSM Symposium. Furtherance of the Dental Sleep Medicine mission is reliant on a sense of community and Jason aims to bring that same sentiment to DSP.
“I’m truly ecstatic to collaborate with veteran and newer contributors within the field of dental sleep medicine to keep DSP’s readers abreast of the latest developments while fostering collaboration and growth in the profession. Lisa and DSP have built an excellent foundation, and I aim to build upon it, Thanks for the opportunity to serve you. Now, Let’s make it happen.”
