On-Site Team Training

Devdent has been to Dr. Fincher’s office for on-site training twice and are planning another visit in June. We have been working closely with Dr. Fincher and his team. During an on-site visit, we work side by side as if we are an employee of the practice. Some of the things we do during our visits are:

  • Presenting Treatment Plans to Patients

  • Sending Insurance Information to Imagn Billing

  • Assisting the Office Manager with Insurance Claims

  • Assisting Dr. Fincher with Impressions, Ripple Position, and Obtaining the Correct Bite for Sleep Patients

  • Assists with Dental Appliance Delivery

  • Coaches the Team on Any Speed Bumps they are Experiencing in the Sleep Process
Community Involvement

During a consultation with the local sheriff, Dr. Fincher and our Devdent Trainer discussed the importance of sleep and how the Ripple Appliance may help his officers with the long hours and stress they cope with daily. The sheriff invited Dr. Fincher to speak to the officers and their spouses at an upcoming department event. One officer shared how the Ripple Oral Appliance has changed his life. The officers (and some family members) are now coming in for screenings and home sleep tests! The sheriff’s office presented Dr. Fincher with a wooden flag plaque as a thank you gift. Dr. Fincher is planning to speak to the SWAT team and their spouses next.

Dr. Fincher participates in the Healthy Start program for children, treating children with sleep and behavioral issues.

He takes treating sleep in his community seriously and wants to reach as many people as he can. About half of his patients have conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes or are overweight and improving their sleep through dental sleep medicine can have a tremendous improvement in their overall health.

Partnering for Success

Dr. Fincher is a perfect example of the success that can be found by partnering Imagn Sleep with on-site training and on-going coaching. Improving patient health through dental sleep medicine.
