The adverse effects of sleep apnea such as diabetes, stroke, depression, and other cardiovascular diseases have been established due to increased technology and research in the field. With the new findings on the effects of sleep apnea, there has been pressure to come up with treatments as quick as possible. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a medical professional and founder of Dental Sleep Masters, a company that identifies sleep problems and offers possible solutions. He has an extensive background in sleep disorder and treatment where he believes 90 percent of people with the disease remain undiagnosed. He is committed to solving the issue and has been working tirelessly together with other dentists and physicians to get the ideal model of treating sleep apnea.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel started his medical career at his dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care in New Jersey. He operated the place for 15 years, which helped him earn the Best Dentist Awards for several years. He is an alumnus of the University of Rutgers where he graduated with a degree in Biology and Psychology. He then got another degree in Dentistry from the University of New York before finally doing his Masters in Dental sleep. During his career in dentistry Dr. Weisfogel was exceptional in his work hence most of his cases were mostly referrals from other dentists who did not know how to help their patients. In his career, he was always fascinated by the world of sleep medicine, and the fact that he has a passion for entrepreneurship were a good mix for him to become a sleep disorder expert. Though he had started treating sleep patients long ago, Dental Sleep Masters provided an excellent avenue to reach out to more doctors to enable them to learn more about how to treat sleeping conditions. His hard work led to the development of systems that use oral appliances to treat sleep disorders.
Inspired by the love he has for his children, Dr. Weisfogel is an active philanthropist who helps the less privileged in the society. He supports Operation Smile Foundation, which helps children born with facial deformities through his Go Fund Me campaign. Millions of free surgeries are conducted on children and young adults with facial deformities across the world. This cause is important to Dr. Weisfogel as he believes every child deserves access to the best dental and health care available.
