Dr. Avi Weisfogel, is a prominent dentist and entrepreneur who has provided innovative solutions for sleep apnea, currently treating patients who are deprived of sleep due to this disorder. The solution is in the form of oral application of sleep wear, which is specifically made to treat particular causes of a patient’s sleep apnea to enhance or alter a patients particular position while sleeping. Dr. Weisfogel had the vision to create this breakthrough and followed through with the support of his passion to do so by founding the Dental Sleep Masters Program. The first dentist to treat sleep apnea through dentistry methods is a big accomplishment and Dr. Weisfogel has followed his heart!
Dr. Weisfogel has been a busy man over his pursuit into dentistry. Besides creating a way for patients to treat sleep apnea through dentistry, versus traditionally doing it through physicians, Dr. Weisfogel started his journey at the University of Rutgers, where he would earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and Psychology. Afterwards, he would earn his credentials as a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of New York.
Following his academic accomplishments, Dr. Weisfogel, in 1999, would open his own dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in New Jersey. Honorably speaking, the practice would win the best dentist award, twice, two years consecutively! Old Bridge Dental Care is still in operation today.
In 2012, Dr. Weisfogel founded the remarkable and innovative Dental Sleep Masters Program. The main purpose of this program was to specifically adapt sleep devices as they pertain to a patient’s unique cause of sleep apnea. In the event that a patient suffered sleep apnea due to tongue flapping, a device specific for that case would be issued, the same would go for tonsil cases as well. These methods would go on to become innovative and crown Dr. Wesfogal as the pioneer of creating the world’s first and most effective methods of treating sleep apnea through dentistry.
With Dr. Weisfogel’s methods, patients are getting better sleep, less puffy eyes, no pauses while breathing and of course a rejuvenating sleep. The days when physicians were the sole gate key holders to treat sleep apnea, is over, Dentists now holds the keys too, thanks to Dr. Weisfogel.
