The Journey Dr. Avi Weisfogel has Taken to Help Create Better Treatments for Sleep Disorders

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has become a prominent figure in the field of sleep disorders with his primary focus being sleep apnea. Studies have shown that people who experience disruptions in their sleep have difficulty getting through their day. Not only can conditions such as sleep apnea make it hard for people to focus on the tasks they need to complete during the day, but it could also create issues that affect their overall state of good health. Dr. Wesifogel has established a number of organizations and opened several facilities to help determine new methods for more effective treatments of sleep disorders. His most recent breakthrough program is referred to as Dental Sleep Masters.

Although Dr. Avi Weisfogel has made a name for himself in the field of sleep apnea, he began his career as a practicing dentist in New Jersey. He was able to establish his own dental practice after obtaining his Doctorate of Dentistry from the New York University College of Dentistry. This allowed him to open the Old Bridge Dental Care clinic, where he continued practicing dentistry for more than 15 years before leaving to establish Dental Sleep Masters. In addition to his degree from the New York College of Dentistry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel also obtained a bachelor’s degree in the fields of biology and psychology from Rutgers. His combined knowledge of the human anatomy as it applied to the alignment of the lower jaw, gave him new insights into the treatment of sleep apnea.

In an effort to gain a better understanding of the changes people underwent during periods of sleep disruption, Dr. Weisfogel started his first company in 2010. This company was called Healthy Heart Sleep and was designed to provide information to health care practitioners about the developments in the treatment of sleep disorders. Dr. Weisfogel accomplished this by holding sleep labs for the purpose of research. His journey on the road to helping people with sleep disorders continued to expand when, in 2012, he founded an organization known as Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient. This lecture venue would become the precursor to Dental Sleep Masters, which was founded in 2014.

A Doctor of Substance: Avi Weisfogel and Sleep Apnea

Dr. Avi Weisfogel founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 in order for doctors and dentists to better understand sleep apnea. His team has created a model in which physicians and sleep physicians can better serve their patients in order to get a handle on the disease.

Dr. Weisfogel also wants to shine a light on sleep apnea since roughly 90% of patients are undiagnosed with the disease. He has extensive knowledge in the area of sleep apnea since beginning his dental practice in 1999. Studies have shown that sleep apnea and the correlation between cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and strokes and Dr. Weisfogel is at the forefront of treatments and advancements for this disease.
Clinical advancements in the area of sleep apnea have given patients as well as physicians new headway into combating sleep apnea. Machines have become much smaller and much more user-friendly. Also, a new procedure called THN Sleep Therapy, developed by ImaThera Medical has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for use in clinical trials. In many cases when patients wake up in the middle of the night, smaller user-friendly devices can help make the disease more tolerable in their everyday lives.
As technology gets more and more advanced in the area of sleep apnea, Dr. Avi Weisfogel will be leading the charge against the disease known as sleep apnea. With his expertise, physicians, sleep physicians, and most importantly their patients will be able to gain a better understanding and insight into the world of sleep apnea. This is what I mean by a doctor of substance.
