Dr. Avi Weisfogel has revolutionized the methods in which sleep apnea is diagnosed and treated. As the Founder of Dental Sleep Masters, Dr. Weisfogel has introduced a new model, bringing together medical and dental professionals to effectively treat the general public affected by sleep apnea.
Due to advanced research which unveiled possible side effects to sleep apnea, like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke, the FDA approved the use of Upper Airway Stimulation, allowing Dr. Avi Weisfogel to move forward with using an oral application to remedy sleep apnea. This new technology could potentially eliminate the need for the commonly used noisy machines and face masks that are used to assist individuals who suffer from sleeping disorders. The alternative treatments for sleep apnea that are being developed currently are expected to create a larger niche in the world of dentistry, where now dental professionals may now devote much of their time to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea.
Dr. Weisfogel earned his BA in biology and psychology from Rutgers University and received his DDS from New York University’s College of Dentistry. His education set the stage for the start of his dental career in 1999, when he opened his first dental practice. He was extremely successful in managing the practice and received numerous recognitions from the community he served. Through his success, he was named Best Dentist for multiple years.
Through his dedicated work in the dental field, Dr. Weisfogel became increasingly aware of the number of patients he served who suffered from sleeping disorders. He continued to launch several companies that further researched treatments for dental related sleep disorders. It is through his dental and entrepreneurial experiences that led to the opening of Dental Sleep Masters in 2014. Dr. Weisfogel has revolutionized the world of sleep through innovation and technologies positively affecting not only dental and medical professionals, but also helping people who suffer from sleep disorders from around the world.
