Due to the hard work and diligence of independent Vivos providers, we can proudly say that 97 percent of patients who have used our system report reaching their desired results. It is because of providers like them that we are able to change lives with our treatment of mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
We also have reason to thank Vivos providers for their hard work outside of their practices. Not only are they a great source of information for our patients, but many of them also offer life-changing instructional courses to dentists around the country through our events and webinars.
