Oral Appliance Therapy constitutes the fastest growing market at a projected growth of 19.0% from 2013-2018

In recent years, David Gergen President of Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA), has lead the push for sleep apnea awareness nationwide and raised the bar for the industry. Through free community awareness events, health evaluations and partnerships with organizations such as the American Sleep and Breathing Academy Dental Division (ASBA), Living Heart Foundation and RemZzzs CPAP mask liners he has been able to reach thousands of people in need of treatment of CPAP and/or Oral Appliance Therapy for obstructive sleep apnea(OSA). Now Pro Player Health Alliance is looking for providers nationwide to team up with and help sufferers of obstructive sleep apnea get treated. Education and support can come from the ASBA Dental and patient outreach through PPHA, making it an unbeatable program that sees the patient winning every time.

The Global Sleep Apnea Therapeutic Devices Market which is mostly in part supported by the PAP industry and oral appliances worldwide, was valued at $7.0 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $15.3 billion by 2018. With that being said, Oral Appliance Therapy constitutes the fastest growing market at a projected growth of 19.0% from 2013-2018. With this projected growth, Pro Player Health Alliance is looking to grow a network of doctors across America to accommodate the overwhelming need to treat patients for the disorder.

Sleep & Wellness 2015: A Conference for Healthcare Professionals is a partnership between ASBA Dental and The American Sleep & Breathing Academy. If a dentist is just beginning or has been treating their patients for obstructive sleep apnea for years, this will turn out to be the most worthwhile seminar of the year. Two main sponsors of the event will feature Gergen's Orthodontic Lab and Pro Player Health Alliance and all dentists are welcome to attend.
