Of course, he also treats sleep and uses imagn Sleep to manage the flow of sleep treatment in his office. Dr. Fincher has been using imagn Sleep for over a year and exclusively recommends the RiPPLE and RiPPLE Plus Appliances to his patients.
We have been to Dr. Fincher’s office for training twice and are planning another visit in June. Heather (one of our fabulous trainer/coaches) has been working closely with Dr. Fincher and his team. During an on-site visit, Heather works side by side as if she is an employee of the practice. Some of the things Heather does during her 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
During a consultation with the local sheriff, Dr. Fincher and Heather 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 share how the RiPPLE 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 the Healthy Start program for children, treating children with sleep and behavioral issues.
