“Poor sleep leads to a variety of different things, including behavioral issues [and] learning and cognitive issues, that can all be tied back to the airway.”

Dr. Christensen on Orofacial Development, or Lack Thereof, in Children

This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Edward Christensen, a talented pediatric dentist and trained Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).

Each day, Dr. Christensen sees dozens of patients. While doing so, he began to notice similarities in their jaw and airway development—or rather, a lack thereof. Many parents complained about their child snoring, struggling with their sleep quality, and behavior during the day. Once Dr. Christensen searched for further understanding, he came across Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. and hasn’t looked back.

“[I realized that] poor sleep leads to a variety of different things, including behavioral issues [and] learning and cognitive issues, that can all be tied back to the airway.”

Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. understands patients young and old. VIPs learn to encourage proper growth and development in pediatric patients to ensure a high quality of life into adulthood. It is essential to understand how to communicate this information with parents to set their children up for success.

“One of the things that I like about Vivos . . . it’s kind of a neat thing to be able to talk to parents about these types of things.”
