Dr. Kalli Hale on the Impact of Vivos

This week on Vivos Voices, we visited with Dr. Kalli Hale, a talented dentist and an enthusiastic Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP).

“I never thought that I would get to a point in my career where I was no longer doing restorative dentistry, that I would need to hire another general dentist to come in and do the fillings and the things that used to be the bread and butter for me,” shared Dr. Hale. “Implementing The Vivos System into my practice has changed it 1,000%, I mean completely. My life is so fulfilled catching sleep apnea in our patients, they actually look forward to coming to see me. They’re sleeping better. They’re breathing better. It’s just been incredible.”

Untreated sleep apnea has many comorbidities, one being heart disease. As more and more providers integrate sleep and airway and begin to treat patients as a whole rather than on a singular level, the consistencies are evident. If we can diagnose patients before they suffer from a heart attack or stroke, screen them for sleep apnea, and provide the proper treatment, we may be able to change the course of their entire life. “It’s learning to recognize what their body is trying to tell you and understanding how to treat it.”

Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. isn’t in the field of sales. We’re in the field of saving lives. And there is nothing we won’t do for our providers. We are dedicated to their success. Because we’re team players, and we need everyone on board to rid the world of sleep apnea.

“There’s nobody that does it like Vivos. Nobody. They have cookie-cutter perfect examples, paperwork, everything you need to go do it,” shared Dr. Hale. “Sometimes I look around at the doctors who are like, ‘Oh I don’t know if I’m going to do it,’ and I’m like, ‘You have literally no idea how easy they’re making it for you.’”

My name is Dr. Kalli Hale. I practice at New Teeth Dental Solutions in League City, Texas. I’m a general dentist. I specialize now in airway treatments. So, a day in the life of my practice has changed significantly since I graduated and started practicing in tremendous ways. I never thought I would get to a point in my career where I was no longer doing restorative dentistry, that I would need to hire another general dentist to come in and do the fillings and the things that used to be the bread and butter for me. And implementing The Vivos System into my practice has changed it a thousand percent. I mean, completely. And my life is so fulfilled catching sleep apnea in our patients. They actually look forward to coming to see me. They’re sleeping better. They’re breathing better. They’re not coming in to get a shot in their mouth in a, you know, a cavity or whatever, so it’s just been incredible. Yeah, the deeper health issues in undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, unfortunately, is a cardiovascular event, aka a heart attack or a stroke. And if there’s anything I could change about the healthcare system, in general, is that before your patient has a heart attack, they’ve been screened first with, for sleep test. If they’ve already have stents, valves replaced, a history of heart attack that every practitioner would have immediately done a sleep test to make sure they didn’t miss it. So, it’s, it’s learning to recognize what their body is trying to tell you and understanding how to treat it. And that’s, that’s the biggest thing. There’s nobody that does it like Vivos, nobody. They have cookie-cutter perfect examples, paperwork, everything you need to go do it. Sometimes I look around at the doctors that are like, ‘oh I don’t know if I’m gonna do,’ and I’m like, you have literally no idea how easy they’re making it for you because when I was doing sleep before Vivos I was, I was on my own. It’s like you gotta figure it out, right. And they have everything. I am so thankful to the entire team. I consider them dear friends now. I can’t imagine not having such a great network of people behind me. This is blue ocean stuff. It really is. And to have these people that are so much smarter than me in so many ways, helping and leading, it’s the best thing they’ll ever do.
