Dr. Martin Gorman on Discovering the Root Cause

This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Martin Gorman, a passionate dentist and skilled Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).

When discussing his years of service as a dentist, Dr. Gorman shared, “This has been the most rewarding, root-cause-focused healthcare I have provided in my entire career.” He sought out a partnership with Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. after receiving a diagnosis of sleep apnea and wearing a mandibular advancement device (MAD) for nearly a year. “I woke up one morning [with the MAD device] and said I just couldn’t do this for another 20 to 30 years.”

While a CPAP, MAD device, and other traditional sleep apnea therapies are effective for some patients, it is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Many patients prefer a simpler, noninvasive method to sleep and breathe better. In addition, modern healthcare is evolving before our eyes, developing a more comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment to give patients a better quality of life.

“I knew about Dr. Dave Singh,” shared Dr. Gorman. “I immediately signed up for his next course. And really, the best thing that ever happened to me [was when] Dave said, ‘Marty, get in the chair. You’re the patient.’ So obviously, he knew from looking at my facial features, my posture, etc. He knew I had sleep apnea.”

“Right now, our practice is probably 75–80 percent sleep apnea cases with The Vivos Appliances. And now we’re reaping the benefit of the health the patients are achieving. With The Vivos Protocol, you are treating the problem’s root cause, and the symptoms go away.”

My name is Dr. Martin Gorman. I practice in Encino, California, which is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. I’ve been doing Vivos appliances for over 11 years, and in general, I’ve been practicing 45 years, and this has been, uh, the most rewarding root-cause-focused healthcare I’ve provided in, in my entire career. I got into Vivos because I myself had sleep apnea, and I was wearing a mandibular advancement device. And after 10 or 11 months of wearing it practically every night of the week, I woke up one morning and said, ‘I just can’t do this for another 20 to 30 years.’ And I knew about Dr. Dave Singh. I immediately signed up for his next course. And then really the best thing that ever happened to me was when Dave said, ‘Marty, get in the chair. You’re the patient.’ So obviously, he knew from looking at my facial features, my posture, etc. That he knew I had sleep apnea. Right now, our practice is probably 75-80 percent sleep apnea cases with The Vivos Appliance. And then now we’re reaping the benefits of the health the patients are achieving. One of the things that we do, we give them a health a, a really extensive health questionnaire, and they check off all these symptoms they have. And then six, eight months into treatment, we give them back the exact same questionnaire they filled out originally, and we say, cross off the symptoms you don’t have anymore or that have greatly improved. And they’re crossing off all these issues they’ve had over the years that are gone now. With the Vivos Protocol, you’re treating the root cause of the problem, and the symptoms go away.
