Nationally-recognized dental website design company, Officite, has recently announced its new partnership with Glidewell, industry-leading provider of dental lab services, to offer dentists a turnkey website and Google local search program for Glidewell’s new anti-snoring device—the aveoTSD.
The aveoTSD is Glidewell’s newest dental appliance for the treatment of snoring. Available to patients only by prescription from a dentist or physician, the aveoTSD is the simplest and least invasive device indicated for problem snoring. The appliance increases airway space by preventing the tongue from falling back in the throat, reducing air velocity and soft tissue vibrations and thereby reducing snoring.
“An estimated 80 million people in the United States are affected by chronic sleep disorders,” said Jim Shuck, Glidewell Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “Patients are searching the Web for snoring solutions, making it critical for any dentist offering treatment for snoring to have a strong online presence and a focused search marketing strategy that yields new patient leads.”
The new joint solution from Officite and Glidewell is offering dentists a cost-effective, unique turnkey solution for attracting snoring patients online. The package includes a well-branded aveoTSD dental website pre-loaded with anti-snoring information, aveoTSD patient friendly resources and videos, and an easy appointment requesting feature. Special pricing on this unique package is available for all dental professionals offering the aveoTSD.
The success of the new program is driven by the specialized Google search engine marketing campaign that targets prospective patients at the exact moment they are searching for snoring treatment in a dentist’s local neighborhood. Directed to the aveoTSD website and presented with a strong call to action, qualified leads will be compelled to pick up the phone to contact the practice for additional information about snoring treatment.
“In order to create a steady pipeline of snoring patients and increase case acceptance for the aveoTSD, today’s dentists need a focused marketing strategy, starting with a fully-functional website and a first page Google ranking," said Glenn Lombardi, President of Officite. “Our new turnkey package is exclusively designed to promote the aveoTSD at the exact moment a patient is searching for snoring treatment in your local area.”

This kit, helpful for in-office patient sizing of the aveoTSD, contains one small, one medium and one large aveoTSD (Tongue Stabilization Device); two Uni-Spacers, sized 4 mm and 7 mm, which can clip on to the aveoTSD for extra titration; and one autoclavable tray.
The aveoTSD, manufactured by Innovative Health Technologies and designed by Dental Sleep Medicine specialist Dr. Chris Robertson, is an anti-snoring aid that is worn on the tongue during sleep. It works by holding the tongue forward using gentle suction and is unique because, unlike other anti-snoring devices, it requires no impressions, no adjustments, no specialist fitting and has no moving parts.
Clinical case studies have shown that the medium aveoTSD fits 95 percent of patients. However, for the precise health professional who wants to ensure an adequate fit from the start, the aveoTSD Patient Sizing Kit allows the dentist or medical physician to try each size device on the patient to check for comfort and fit. For patients who need extra titration due to a long tongue, the 4 mm or 7 mm Uni-Spacer can be used to provide a more restful night’s sleep. After trying in each piece, place items back into the tray and autoclave, then reuse the kit minutes later.
Priced individually, the pieces included in the aveoTSD Health Professional Patient Sizing Kit total up to $489. But when purchased as a kit, dentists and medical physicians will pay just $269.
Pre-order the aveoTSD Patient Sizing Kit by calling 800-334-1979. The first orders will be shipped beginning September 24, 2010. For more information, visit getaveo.com.
