In the afternoon, Dr. Brandon Hedgecock shares insights from building a seven-figure sleep practice, and Heather Wallace talks about the impact of IAOS programs. The day concludes with Avi Weisfogel’s session on essential contracts and processes to protect against audits and ensure success in dental sleep medicine.

What People Are Saying

Over 180 Dentists Have Adopted the IAOS Model to Build a Successful Sleep Business

With the readily available daily support from the IAOS team and from fellow members, I was able to increase my sleep appliance numbers over 200 times in just two years. Today, I rent two operatories two days a month, and other than my beautiful wife, my only other payroll is a chairside assistant.

IAOS is like anything else in life: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. If you’re going to join, go at full steam and take advantage of everything that is offered through the organization and you will succeed.


Charleston, SC

Once I made the decision to hang up the handpiece, I was 100% all-in and I have no regrets at all. I never would have done that without IAOS guiding me in that direction. Today, we’re up to just over 20 appliances a month, and we’re planning on ramping that up quite a bit.
