Oral appliance maker and sleep apnea therapy company Vivos Therapeutics has signed a cooperative agreement with distributor Benco Dental to help broaden the Vivos System’s reach.
“Sleep apnea is a serious and growing health epidemic facing America,” says Kirk Huntsman, CEO at Vivos, in a release. “Our newly formed partnership with Benco Dental will allow our revolutionary technology to reach dentists and their patients throughout the United States and introduce them to our VIP program designed specially to help clinicians achieve success, regardless of their experience levels.”

Chuck Cohen, managing director at Benco Dental, says, “Our company has a long history of bringing to market innovative products from trailblazing companies. The Vivos System stands as one of those potential gamechangers because it’s a possible curative solution—a technology-enabled, multidisciplinary, comprehensive solution that dentists are uniquely qualified to apply. The Vivos vision of empowering clinicians to rid the world of OSA is keenly aligned with Benco’s own commitment to driving dentistry forward and opening new worlds of treatment possibilities.”

The partnership will launch with a series of events beginning this month. Vivos and Benco also plan 27 seminars—one in every Benco sales territory—during Q1 of 2020. Benco customers in all 50 states will have an in-person opportunity to learn more about the treatment, how it helps people with OSA, and helpful resources available for integrating it into their practices.
