Nexus Dental Systems, a conglomerate that fulfills the needs of a dental practice to identify, screen, treat, and monitor sleep treatment compliance for oral appliance therapy, has launched, and the new company includes several familiar names.

Deepit Anand, founder and fund manager of Sapphire Group of Funds and who has experience running a dental support organization, is financially backing the new company. “After being a part of the dental industry for over a decade, we decided that now was the right time to develop a comprehensive ecosystem for all aspects of dental sleep medicine,” says Anand in a release. “We ended up creating a nexus of several successful companies to cater to the current industry needs.”

Fellow founders are Brett Brocki, creator of proprietary software for obstructive sleep apnea medical billing, and Patrick Kircher, who was CEO of National Dental Systems.

“The ability to coalesce the most synergistic and powerful relationships in the dental sleep medicine business within one organization is by far the most unique opportunity to combat the debilitating problem of OSA,” says Brocki in a release. “Deepit’s prowess and financial depth allow Nexus Dental Systems to immediately stand supreme in the arena.”

Nexus also includes Frank Mahony, who is senior technology advisor. Mahony has successfully managed technology-based organizations including those in healthcare, ecommerce, point-of-sale, warehouse, logistics, manufacturing, and accounting.

Other members of the team include Lee Surkin, MD, FACC, FCCP, FASNC, FAASM, who is board certified in cardiology, nuclear cardiology, and sleep medicine, and founder of the American Academy of Cardiovascular Sleep Medicine; Lisa Moler, chief marketing officer,who founded Medmark LLC and Dental Sleep Practice magazine, amongst other niche dental properties; John Peterson DDS, who holds National Medical payor contracts; and Mel Blount, former Pittsburgh Steeler cornerback, a five-time Pro-Bowler, and four-time Super Bowl Champion as national health & wellness spokesperson.
