So many dental sleep leaders don’t remember what it was like to implement, manage, and grow dental sleep medicine in a restorative practice. They lecture about it like it’s easy peasy - no biggie. The struggle is real. You know it. So do our guests...
Dr. Michael McCormick and Dr. Marc Newman share their real world journeys to make sleep an integral, life-saving, profitable part of their respective practices. Whether starting in Virginia or Indiana, their DSM paths to success take some different twists and turns.
- One has used telemedicine to streamline sleep testing processes. The other owns 5 HST units.
- One has encountered nearly every challenge a dentist can face, while the other said it’s been pretty seamless.
- One started with a DSM consultant. The other one began using a consultant much later.
Which one are you?
How do you measure a successful case? Is it a 50% reduction in AHI or spooning with your spouse for the first time in 22 years?
