If you have a project in sleep medicine or need to hear from a leading authority in the field, Adrian would be delighted to help.

Very simply put, we wouldn’t be here, providing useful information to snorers, families, employers and dental professionals if it wasn’t for Adrian Zacher. His 25+ year experience covers oral appliance therapy, respiratory & dental market assessment, market entry strategic planning and futures thinking facilitation.

Adrian Zacher MBA

Adrian has a wide ranging experience in medical devices for both conscious and unconscious respiratory medicine. He is a recognised pioneer, inventor, author, expert and serial entrepreneur.

He is passionate about a holistic approach to patient care and frustrated by silo mentalities that stand in the way of improved patient outcomes.

Adrian pioneered the first commercial dental sleep medicine laboratory in Europe; ZSA Ltd. During the 11 years of successfully running ZSA, he invented a sleep device that could be adjusted to suit the individual needs of the wearer, winning an award for the device. He went on to co-found the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine (BSDSM) and instigated and assembled the sleep medicine team which ultimately developed the Pre-Treatment Screening Protocol, which forms the benchmark for obstructive sleep apnoea screening in the UK. He continues to provide specialist dental sleep medicine knowledge to interested parties.

Adrian successfully completed his MBA in Oxford. He consulted to ResMed making a recommendation that they diversify their portfolio by buying Laboratoires Narval, a French oral appliance manufacturer, which ResMed went onto acquire. He was then headhunted to lead international business development, working as subject matter expert on oral appliances and dental sleep medicine. He left in February 2012.

Adrian is often asked for advice and insight in the field of sleep medicine, co-authoring a chapter in Carranza’s Clinical Periodontology Expert Consult, and consulting to leading sleep business like SomnoMed. He has also co-taught Section 63 courses in Dental Sleep Medicine alongside Dr Roy Dookun, and trained dental technicians at Lambeth College.

Whilst taking time off as a new parent (truly appreciating the need for good quality sleep!) he started work on Ltd.

When not running, including (for patients), (for employers) and (for dentists), Adrian runs a LinkedIn group “The impact of sleep disorders on business” is a member of the British Sleep Society and a recent past Trustee of the charity Hope2Sleep that supports patients with sleep-related breathing disorders.

If your project would benefit from Adrian’s expertise, or your event would like a unique perspective that spans corporate, medical and dental, please get in touch.
