“Half of the patients that I’ve treated so far have actually been patients who’ve sought out my practice.”

Dr. Adriane Graham on Patient Interest in Vivos
This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Adrian Graham, a seasoned dentist and talented Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).
For over 20 years, Dr. Graham has served the patient population of Inglewood, California. She first joined Vivos in 2019 and, since then, has seen her practice grow exponentially. Fatigue, exhaustion, issues with sleep, and snoring are common issues that individuals with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) face. Specialists refer to it as a sleep and breathing epidemic. Challenges brought on by disrupted sleep, reduced blood-oxygen saturation, and an underdeveloped mouth and airway are dangerous for an individual’s overall health and wellness.
That said, many of these individuals are tired of suffering, doing their due diligence and research to discover a better solution. This is how many are coming to find Vivos. Patients are actually seeking out VIPs to do the treatment. “Every single one of my patients [has] had a positive experience,” Graham shared. “Half of the patients that I’ve treated so far have actually been patients who’ve sought out my practice.”
Once onboard, it doesn’t take long to see real, positive results. “One of my patients said [that], for 30 years, she has not been able to breathe through her left nostril,” shared Dr. Graham. “Once we started a nasal hygiene program and she was given an appliance, she saw results.”
With Vivos, “I completely see people differently now. I can’t see a patient the same way I did before.”
My name is Dr. Adrian Graham. My practice is in Inglewood, California. I have been involved with Vivos for about two years. I’ve been practicing for about 24 years, maybe. Well, I tell you this, every single one of my patients have had a positive experience. I’ve had half of the patients that I’ve treated so far have actually been patients who’ve sought out my practice, and the other half were existing patients. What they all have in common is that they have issues with fatigue, with sleep, with snoring. One of my patients was one who said for 30 years, she has not been able to breathe through her left nostril. Immediately with her, once we started a nasal hygiene program, a protocol with her and, and she was given an appliance, she saw results. And, you know, she came to me and said, ‘had I known this years ago, you know, I would have done this years ago.’ I would say to another dentist that it is absolutely worth everything that you have to do. I know in, in my case, I had to completely revamp things in order to make it a part of the, the flow of every day. I completely see people differently now. I can’t see a patient the same way I did before.”
