Todd Morgan Dental Corporation Has Partnered with Sleep Data Corporation to Ensure the Best Oral Appliance Treatment and Maintenance for Patient Success

“In my new venture between Todd Morgan Dental Corporation and Sleep Data Corporation we will help over 30,000 patients in 2017-2018 with sleep apnea.” said Dr. Morgan

Todd Morgan Dental Corporation has partnered with Sleep Data Corporation to ensure the best oral appliance treatment and maintenance for patient success.

Dr. Todd Morgan, DMD, ABDSM is board certified in Dentistry and Dental Sleep Medicine. He is a clinician and researcher with more than 25 years experience in treating snoring and sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy (OAT) and maintenance. In his most recent venture Todd Morgan Dental Corporation partnered with Sleep Data Corporation last month to develop a revolutionary business model involving patented software offering patients a treatment pathway that will direct, monitor, coach and ensure the best protocol for patient success. At their new facility in Kearny Mesa, CA patients can get tested, and treated all in one location for their chronic sleep apnea. The process is easy, patients who are referred to Sleep Data Corporation are evaluated and take an easy at home sleep test to determine their best method of treatment. Although some patients use continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) this option is not a catch all for everyone, it is estimated over 30% of patients do not use CPAP. The patients who prefer using OAT meet with Dr. Morgan who has contracts with the top industry manufacturers and is able to offer a full range of treatment options so that patients feel empowered about decisions made about their healthcare. “Sleep Data helped 20,000 patients suffering from sleep apnea last year and with my new venture between TMDC (Todd Morgan Dental Corporation) and Sleep Data Corporation we will help over 30,000 patients in 2017-2018. Our core business values line up so it just made sense to partner together.” said Dr. Morgan.

As the pioneer in dental sleep medicine, Dr. Morgan does not stop at oral appliance therapy, he also takes the time to educate his patients about the importance of maintaining and cleaning their oral device. The proper care and maintenance of an oral appliance is essential in keeping the mouth guard working to its full ability, lasting a lifetime in many cases. Since it’s going into your mouth, it’s critical to remember that the mouth itself is one major portal in the body that can introduce bacteria, viruses… all kinds of unwanted microorganisms into the bloodstream. These can cause infections, trigger allergies or simply make you sick, not to mention that they put your mouth at risk for tooth and gum disease. For oral appliance therapy Dr. Morgan offers options such as the Narval, Herbst, EMA, and Micro so that his patients have choices as to what type of mouth guard they will get. But to maintain those appliances and keep them in like new condition, Dr. Morgan only uses one product: a revolutionary formula he calls Prodentclean.

Prodentclean is an oral appliance cleaner that is a 100% safe, non-toxic, concentrated formula using key ingredients such as empowered oxygen. In laboratory testing it was proven to kill 99.9% bacteria and effectively break down biofilm that forms on all oral appliances. Dr. Morgan invented this highly effective formula when he grew tired of watching his staff use masks and gloves when handling harsh chemicals to clean devices in their ultrasonic machine. Prodentclean is just as effective in deep cleaning appliances without discoloring or affecting their metal components. In 2016, Dr. Morgan began offering Prodentclean to patients, dental offices and labs where the feedback has been astounding. “ I have seen a lot of cleaning products used throughout the years, but none has been as safe yet effective in cleaning my clients mouth guards, and retainers. I was able to introduce Prodentclean to a dental practice who loved it so much they now use it in their office as well as sell direct to patients.” said Frank Madrigal – Founder True Function Laboratory.

According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, an estimated 22 million Americans experience sleep apnea. What’s more surprising is that they also estimate that 80% of moderate and severe cases go undiagnosed. Now with the partnership between Todd Morgan Dental Corporation and Sleep Data Corporation patients can feel confident they will not only find the correct oral appliance therapy and maintenance, but also be a part of the decisions related to their own healthcare.

News Image

“Future-proofing is the name of the game in today’s collection agency, and this report shows that the overall industry is confident in the policies and evolving technology, yet has been slower to adapt their business models,” said Terrel Bird, CEO of TCN.

TCN, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based call center technology for enterprises, contact centers, BPOs and collection agencies worldwide, today announced the results of its “State of the Collections Industry” report, which reveals the collection industry executives’ views on technology, communications, regulations and future outlook. With the goal of understanding human sentiment and identifying the challenges collections professionals face, TCN surveyed numerous executives and owners at small and medium-sized collection agencies, collection departments and law firms that support the industry.

Despite industry consolidation and the challenges associated with new regulations in recent years, the report uncovers that collections industry executives feel positive about the future of their businesses and the industry as a whole. However, the findings also show that TCPA continues to be the most difficult regulation to navigate because of variations interpretations and application, coupled with the extreme costs associated with compliance failure.

Key Findings from the State of the Collections Industry report include:

Confidence in a Bright Future

While the results aren’t a clear landslide, most of the survey respondents expressed positive outlook for their own companies and the collections industry, in general.

How do you feel about the future of the collections industry as a whole?

  •     Extremely Positive: 17 percent
  •     Somewhat Positive: 35 percent
  •     Neutral: 35 percent
  •     Not Very Positive: 12 percent
  •     Negative: ~1 percent

How do you feel about the future of your company?

  •     Extremely Positive: 61 percent
  •     Somewhat Positive: 29 percent
  •     Neutral: 9 percent
  •     Not Very Positive: 0 percent
  •     Negative: ~1 percent

Confidence in Policy Adherence

Majority of survey respondents shared that they feel “extremely confident” or “somewhat confident” in their adherence to state and federal call center regulations. The positive sentiment is likely derived from businesses actively taking steps to protect communications and data collection processes.

Are you confident that your company is complying with state and federal dialing regulations?

  •     Extremely confident: 62.5 percent
  •     Somewhat confident: 30 percent
  •     Neutral: 7 percent
  •     Not very confident: ~1 percent
  •     Not confident at all: 0 percent

TCPA Remains a Dominant Concern

Though the survey results reflected an overwhelmingly positive sentiment towards confidence in policy adherence, respondents also shared specific concerns about compliance. A large percentage stated that they found TCPA regulations more challenging than others.

Which regulation is most challenging?

  •     TCPA: 41 percent
  •     CFPB Rulemaking: 18 percent
  •     FDCPA: 7 percent
  •     Other: 5 percent
  •     None are a challenge: 29 percent

Use of Digital Tools

With rapidly changing regulations and policies, it’s critical to stay up to date on the legal landscape in order to avoid costly fines and penalties. The survey reveals that more than half of the respondents are adopting cloud-based technology solutions to maintain compliance and stay updated on policy changes.

  •     59 percent of respondents are using a cloud-based solution to keep pace and stay compliant with regulatory changes.
  •     Of the 41 percent who said they are not using cloud-based solutions, 52 percent said that they have plans to invest in a cloud-based call center solution in the future.

Which tech solutions are most beneficial to your organization’s operations?

  •     Compliance solutions: 29 percent

Geometry and Particle Hitch-hiking: A New Window—and Possible Breakthrough—Into Improving Nanopharmaceuticals for Personalized Medicine

Moghimi advises that in today’s medical environment patients can and should be pre-screened for nanomedicine applications and that his research gives hope that better nanomedicines can and should be designed.

In a newly published study in Nature Nanotechnology (, the shape and geometry of nanoparticles can have a significant impact in modulating adverse injection reactions and offer realistic solutions for patients receiving nanopharmaceuticals—drug delivery systems specializing in microscopic-particle drug combinations. Almost reminiscent of the popular 1966 Fantastic Voyage movie where a team of scientists and their ship were shrunk down to microscopic—nanoparticle—size to enter a dying man’s body to cure him.

Geometry and hitch-hiking are not the first things that come to mind regarding the immune system. However, the recent work by Moein Moghimi, Professor and Chair of pharmaceutics at Durham University, United Kingdom and collaborators shows that geometry is key in nanoparticle recognition by the immune system. When a patient is infused (slow injection) a nanomedicine, in some rare cases reported, the patients react immediately with allergic-like symptoms and creating what in medicine is known as adverse or anaphylactic reaction. Understanding why these adverse reactions happen in some patients and not in others and how to overcome it is what Moghimi and collaborators address in this intriguing paper.

By using spherical shape particles, the team discovered that a cardiopulmonary distress (a sign of anaphylactic reaction) is triggered. “In general, these particles are expected to be rapidly intercepted in the blood by scavenger cells known as macrophages. When these cells eat too much of these particles and especially too fast, they release some potent substances (inflammatory mediators) into the blood that triggers adverse reactions. The next question then was; could shape make a difference in triggering adverse reaction.” Moghimi explained. “We literally went back to the blackboard and did calculations. We wanted to understand how these blood scavengers see an object in the blood in terms of its shape and volume for grabbing. So, we came up with the idea of deviating from a symmetrical shape (sphere) to slow down macrophage ingestion or even trying to make the particles invisible to reactive macrophages.”

Next, the team made more particles but in the form of rod and disk morphology of a dimension similar to the diameter of their spheres. Amazingly, it was clear that the morphology and geometry was playing a major role in dampening adverse reactions to nanoparticle injection. In order to explain this better, Moghimi uses an example of a river. “Imagine a number of things/objects floating on a river and having to go through a gate. Depending on their dimensions, orientation, and volume (i.e., their shape) some of those objects will be stopped and actually impact the flow as they try to get through the gate.”

Also, the team explored “hitch-hiking”, an idea introduced earlier by Moghimi’s collaborator, Samir Mitragotri at the University of California Santa Barbara, where particles are hidden from the blood scavenger cells. This technique also worked proving that spheres, when attached to red-blood cells (like back packs), could not be ingested by the macrophages causing adverse reactions to disappear, according to Moghimi.

Recognizing that these simple approaches can create strategies for better and more patient-tailored nanomedicine (Personalized Medicine) could be a breakthrough for nanopharmaceuticals. Considered particle engineering at its best, these simple-by–design approaches, as Moghimi and collaborators write in the paper, could lead to better nanopharmaceutical solutions to overcome injection-related reactions. Even with spherical particles, hitch-hiking on red-blood cells may provide a viable clinical solution.

Though considered early in the study process, Moghimi notes the results offer great insights into why these adverse reactions occur in some patients and not in others. The reactive individuals presumably have some scavenger cells (macrophages) that tend to cause trouble—an idea that had been a part of a hypothesis formulated by Moghimi last year.†

“About two years ago, I was wondering if there were physiological differences in some people that made them more susceptible to certain nanomedicines. Our recent work shows it is possible that the reactive macrophages in some people’s lungs and livers could be causing these reactions,” Moghimi states. He also notes as the studies are further applied in testing in humans, they could eventually lead to alternative solutions for patient-care. In the end, Moghimi advises that in today’s medical environment patients can and should be pre-screened for nanomedicine applications and that the future, according to his research, gives hope that better nanomedicines can and should be designed.

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Enters China With Dry Eye Solution

News Image

There is exciting news in the war against dry eye disease, which afflicts 17% of the Chinese population of approximately 1.5 billion people. Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica, announced on the air the imminent arrival in China of a unique product that turns back the onslaught of dry eye disease.

Sharon Kleyne explained that this is a disorder of the tear film as a result of deficient tear production or excessive evaporation. This condition can lead to damage to the ocular system and even blindness. Well known symptoms include pain, discomfort, headaches, redness, swelling and poor vision. Depression and anxiety are also common in people suffering from dry eye disease. “Approximately 38,3000,000 Chinese are going to suffer from dry eye disease in 2017,” said Kleyne, “and we’re going to do something about it to help those suffering with these symptoms.”

Sharon Kleyne’s research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® has developed the only product on the global market, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, that solves the dry eye dilemma. Kleyne explained that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film, which is naturally 99 percent water. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water, and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both.

Sharon Kleyne, who has conducted groundbreaking research on dehydration of the body’s water vapor due to excessive evaporation for more than two decades, sees the need for more research because dry eye disease is on the rise around the world. “Everyone suffers dry eyes on occasion,” said Kleyne, “but billions of people are chronically afflicted with dry eye symptoms that can result in blindness. “Natural tears in China,” Kleyne said, “are the right ticket to getting rid of dry eye,” said Kleyne. “Natural tears lubricate our eyes. They protect the cornea and the surrounding tissues. That’s why Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is such a perfect fit for China.”
