The NYU School of Dentistry will be hosting their first annual Dental Sleep Medicine Continuum. The program, led by nationally recognized experts in the field, will offer practicing dentists hands-on experience with Oral Appliance Therapy to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea. OravanOSA is proud to be chosen as the dorsal provider for the program's participants. In conjunction with Apex Dental Sleep Lab, dentists will learn about the advantages of the Oravan devices through the fitting and delivery sessions. The course is a 3 session, 6 day program beginning in July of this year. OravanOSA continues to share its devices with top universities across the country.
Today, OravanOSA and Apex Dental Sleep Lab announced that its Dorsal device, Oravan, will be featured at the 2018 University of North Carolina Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency Program. The program consists of three, weekend sessions of lectures from nationally recognized experts and hands-on clinical exercises to prepare each participant in evaluating and delivering customized oral appliance therapy for obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. The course directors include Dr. Gregory Essick, Dr. Terry R. Bennett, and Dr. Mayoor Patel.
"We are very excited to be chosen as the Dorsal provider for this program. Being able to walk through each participant from the taking of impressions to delivery to follow up is incredibly effective," Daniel Stein of OravanOSA said.
Apex president, Sonnie Bocala, will be in attendance with Daniel Stein, leading the effort in manufacturing the Oravan's for the program's participants.

The Oravan and Oravan Herbst sleep apnea devices by OravanOSA encourage natural protrusion of the tongue, maximum patient comfort and less clinical chair time at the fitting session.
Ivan Stein, DDS, a NJ based dental sleep practitioner, is the proud inventor of the Oravan and Oravan Herbst. “After many years of practicing sleep medicine, I was frustrated with the lack of comfort my patients were facing with other appliances as well as the amount of extra chair time having to refit and adjust them,” said Stein.

On May 17th, OravanOSA announced that Johns Dental Laboratories, a dental sleep manufacturer based in Indiana, is licensed to fabricate the Oravan and Oravan Herbst sleep devices. Johns Dental is a full service laboratory with 75+ years of experience specializing in orthodontics, sleep apnea, TMD and more.

OravanOSA introduced the Oravan Herbst at the 2015 Greater New York Dental Meeting in New York City. Oravan Herbst is Medicare PDAC approved and FDA-cleared to treat obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. The company states that the Herbst has a truly open anterior design, encouraging natural protrusion of the tongue, maximum patient comfort, and no interference with anterior dental cosmetic work. The telescopic arms connecting the upper and lower components allow for easy lateral and vertical movement, which is particularly beneficial for those patients that grind or brux their teeth while sleeping.
Daniel Stein, co-founder and CEO of OravanOSA, says in a release: “We are very happy to announce the introduction of the Oravan Herbst. This is a very important step for our company and our clients. Now, Medicare patients can experience the difference with our unique open anterior design and get the sleep they deserve.”
OravanOSA currently fabricates the Oravan (dorsal fin) and Oravan Herbst appliances.
