Vivos Leadership Spotlight: Dr. Martha Cortes, DDS

I have recently been highlighting some of the members of the leadership team with Vivos Therapeutics. These individuals are dedicated to helping Vivos develop its patented treatment system for the sleeping disorder, obstructive sleep apnea. This spotlight will cover Dr. Martha Cortes, DDS who is a member of the Vivos Clinical Advisory Board. Dr. Cortes is the current president and owner of Sleep Fitness, LLC. She has been in the private practice for general, cosmetic and periodontal laser dentistry along with biological neuromuscular dentistry, in New York City, for the past thirty years.

   Dr. Cortes’ objective is to enhance the well-being of her patients through the use of biologically friendly materials and methods that include the most advanced equipment and techniques. She provides therapy for craniofacial pain which is the upper airway resistance syndrome and sleep breathing disorders. She has also been treating TMJ disorders and facial cervical/myofascial pain, neuralgias and neuropathies for over twenty years through orthotics and full mouth reconstruction. Over the past ten years, she has chosen to further enhance her practice through orthopedic and orthodontic therapy for TMJ, sleep breathing disorders and the treatment of neuralgias and neuropathies through craniofacial remodeling.

   In the field of craniofacial development, Dr. Martha Cortes has published articles that accepted the evidence for the growth of the maxilla and upper airways in the treatment towards reversal of obstructive sleep apnea and upper airway resistance syndrome in the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. She has also treated patients with craniocervical pain which includes seizures, dystonia, chronic pain, and chronic headaches. She was also the first to spearhead the training for Vivos certified instructor’s dentists in 2012 and was the first certified instructor in the US, in clinical pediatrics and adults for Vivos following her training with her mentor, Dr. Dave Singh.

We, at Vivo Therapeutics, are more than happy to welcome Dr. Martha Cortes, DDS to our leadership team as part of our Clinical Advisory Board. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge that will surely aid our efforts in the fight to combat obstructive sleep apnea. We look forward to more of her contributions.
