David helms the ship as CEO of Respire Medical, a flagship of Whole You™, where they’ve taken the oral appliance market to new heights with the launch of the innovative Whole You™ Respire Pink AT. David dishes on new advancements to the Herbst appliance, how listening to the voices of their customers led to the changes, why their BONKERS warranty matters, and how the dental sleep field would benefit by learning analogously from other business verticals. All of this with a British accent.
David also tells what he’s learned from the Who’s Who of physician specialty guests he’s had on his own podcast, “Sleep Talking.” You’ll be stunned by his suggestion about what dentists should do to earn more physician referrals. It definitely reinforces the idea that there’s more than one way to skin the proverbial cat.
David’s past life as a denturist gives him unique perspectives into what dentists can do to improve the quality of the cases they receive, the future of digital impressions in DSM, and which anatomic curvature can make or break a case. He downloads some truly meaningful insights, teaches the ZZZs about spotted dick, and stuns with some of his lightning round questions.
