We have recently been highlighting some of the members of the leadership team at Vivos Therapeutics. In this spotlight, we will be looking at Dr. Tara M. Griffin who is a member of the recent Clinical Advisory Board. Outside of Vivos, Dr. Griffin is the CEO and founder of Emerald Coast Dental Spa and Sleep Medicine and Wellness PCB which is a dentistry that specializes in dental sleep medicine, general and cosmetic dentistry, whole-body health with nutraceutical supplements and facial cosmetics like Botox and Juvederm. She has accumulated over 11 years of experience of creating beautiful smile makeovers as well as taking on the training of other dentists in the field of oral appliances for children and adults with sleep-disordered breathing.
Dr. Griffin was raised in Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. She then continued her education at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where she received her Doctorate in Medical Dentistry. She was later mentored by Dr. Carlton S. Schwartz who brought her into his practice in 2007. Since that time, she has gone to continue her studies in advanced periodontal therapy, temporomandibular joint disorder, functional medicine and genomics, oral-systemic health, and orofacial pain. She also has her Diplomates from the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.
Dr. Tara Griffin was also mentored by Vivos co-founder Dr. Dave Singh in the field of Biomimetics using the concepts of Pneumopedics and Craniofacial Epigenetics. She is one of the ten dentists who are internationally certified to train doctors for the biomimetic DNA/mRNA and VIVOS appliances. She is also a member of the American Dental Association and the Florida Dental Association. She was the former president of the Bay County Dental Association, American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Sleep and Breathing Academy, American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce, Bay County Chamber of Commerce, and is on the Board of Panama City Marine Institute.
Since 2010, she has been recognized for her work as she received the nomination of Business Woman of the Year by the Emerald Ladies Journal and was awarded Small Business Person of the Year by Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce. She spoke at the Harvard Faculty Club at Harvard University in 2016 as an expert in “dental sleep medicine.”
We, at Vivos Therapeutics, are more than happy to have Dr. Tara Griffin on our team. She has made quite the name for herself in the field, and we are confident that her contributions to the team will help lead Vivos in the right direction.
