DNA/VIVOS Sydney Practitioners
I had an appointment today with a specialist in Sydney who is working directly with VIVOS/DNA. A lot of people believe there is nobody in Australia that works with this appliance, but I have found one.
Dr. Mark Levi at The Smile Shop
63 Oxford St. Darlinghurst, Sydney
+61 2 9283 1900
He is very professional, friendly and patient. He will take the time you need to go through questions and information. He informed me that he knows Dr.Singh personally and has close relationships with the Vivos community in the USA.
This was caught by our spam filter, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. You would be surprised how many "professional dental clinics" seem to be promoting themselves with spam bots targeting forums like ours.
Please update the community on your discussions with this Dr. Levi and your experience with the DNA appliance (if you choose to go ahead with treatment).

Thanks for the tip-off. I'm also in Sydney and considering Vivos to treat my severe sleep apnea. Could you give us some more details of why you sought Dr. Levi out? Would you be open to talking in private with me about it?
@admin Sorry, yeah not a problem.
I am female, 28 yrs old. I had 4 teeth extractions and braces when I was young. As a result of this I have mild sleep apnea, forward neck posture and of course an underdeveloped jaw.
I live in Sydney and see a chiropractor that specialises in upper cervical spinal adjustments who I highly recommend. Most often when the atlas is not aligned the entire spine is affected negatively so this has been a game changer in my healing journey and dealing with neck pain. Her name is Dr. Cecilia Yu and is based in Bondi. You can find her website here: https://www.abalancedatlas.com/
After some adjustments, we were realising that my alignment was having difficulty holding position, and my TMJ was beginning to get very noticeable. As many here would understand, if the jaw itself is not correctly aligned, then this affects the spine etc.
Dr.Yu herself is from the United States, and prior to her working in Australia she worked with clients based in USA who used the DNA/Vivos appliance and had great success.
I have done a lot of research into jaw expansion. I have visited Dr. Derek Mahony, and Dr Louis Chan - both who I would highly recommend. They are very expert in their field. However, neither of these doctors work with DNA/Vivos. I struggled to find anyone online in Australia who offered this sort of device.
So after all of this, I spoke with my chiropractor and she said she might be able to help me. Dr. Yu sent some of my facial scans to her contacts in the USA who advised my case would be suitable for the appliance, and gave the names of two people in Australia who are using the device: Mark Levi and Jalal Khan.
I contacted Dr. Levi first and it has been a very good experience so far. I am leaning strongly towards going ahead with treatment under Dr.Levi's supervision. He himself is using the appliance currently and he has an extensive list of contacts in the USA who are supporting his work. His website can be found here: http://www.drmarklevi.com.au/ , and here https://smileshop.com.au/home-new/
Thanks @JeanetteG. I met Jalal Khan at a presentation that Dr Singh gave in Sydney in November 2019, and have seen him to get fitted with a Vivos mRNA; which I'm now anxiously awaiting the arrival of. Have you received your device yet?
