Integrative Orthodontics & Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders
Dr. Genny Duran is dedicated to the oral health and overall physical well-being of our patients.
She practices Airway-Centered Dentistry to address a wide range of concerns that impact the oral health and everyday quality of life of patients of all ages.
Dr. Durán is proud to be an official Vivos® Integrated Provider.
Vivos® DNA/mRNA Appliance Therapy comes from Vivos® Therapeutics, Inc., a leader in the breathing wellness movement. The company focuses on developing advanced treatment options for individuals who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing.
The Vivos System is a multidisciplinary therapeutic protocol for the treatment of sleep disordered breathing including mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Through craniofacial development and pneumopedic development with specific oral appliance therapy the pharyngeal airway can be developed to become larger and less likely to collapse. This collapse is a primary cause in airway resistance and obstruction.
Dr. Durán is educated and trained in the Vivos System of treatment and is a Vivos Integrated Provider.
Dr. Durán earned her Bachelor’s degree in Dentistry from The Central University of Venezuela (UCV) in 1996. After working as a general dentist for one year, her passion for children led her to pursue advanced specialty training at Santa María University (USM) to become a Certified Pediatric Dentist.
Later she moved to Monterrey, Mexico, and completed her Master’s degree in Dental Science with advanced specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at The Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon (UANL). This extended specialty training has provided her with a solid foundation of knowledge on delivering dental care to all children, including those with special needs and medically compromised conditions.
In addition, she was a faculty member at the School of Dentistry of the University of Carabobo (Venezuela) for six years at Undergraduate & Graduate Programs in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr, Durán has been in private practice for more than fifteen years.
Feeling the call to continue her education, she then attended Seneca College (Toronto, Canada), and this was where she received her certificate in Clinical Research.
Apart from this, Dr. Durán clinical passions include functional orthodontics, treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and sleep-disordered breathing. Moreover, she has lectured nationally and internationally and published in professional peer-reviewed journals.
Without a doubt, Dr. Durán is committed to providing high-quality dental services for disadvantaged children who don’t have access to adequate dental care by volunteer her time at ‘Fundación Odontología Solidaria’ in Madrid.
