Whole You Inc, a Mitsui Chemicals company dedicated to providing innovative solutions that allow those with sensory and physical mobility challenges to live life to the fullest, will make its first conference appearance at the California Dental Association’s CDA Presents Anaheim 2015. The conference takes place from April 30-May 1 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Whole You will provide information on the company and feature its oral appliance products at its booth. The company will also present sessions titled “Expanding Your Business with Sleep Dentistry” at The Spot on April 30 and May 1 at 4 p.m. These duplicate sessions will examine how and why dentists should implement a dental sleep medicine program into their practices. The sessions will be hosted by David Walton, CEO of Respire Medical, featuring Kimberly Hubenette, DDS, MAGD, Synergy Dental Group, and Pat McBride, BA, RDA, CCSH, Dental Sleep Medicine Clinician, Dental Sleep Medicine Offices of MJ Selleck, Board of Directors for the American Academy of Dental and Physiological Medicine (AAPMD).

“It is estimated that over half of the 12-18 million people in the US suffering from sleep apnea are not diagnosed,” says Hiromi Inagaki, chief innovation officer, Whole You, in a release. “Dental practitioners have a great opportunity to diversify their business by focusing on dental sleep medicine, while increasing awareness of oral appliances as a viable treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea. This, in turn, will greatly improve the lives of their patients.”

In November 2014, Whole You launched and announced Mitsui Chemicals acquisitions of CAD/CAM denture company Dentca. In March 2015, it announced the acquisition of oral appliance company Respire Medical.

“Whole You strongly believes in a collaborative approach to healthcare and is committed to providing more options for patients,” Inagaki says. “We expect to have very productive conversations with dental professionals to discuss opportunities for Whole You to support their business and patient needs.”
