The work of New Jersey based dentist and sleep disorder expert Avi Weisfogel has taken many different paths since he established his own dental practice in 1999; Weisfogel has taken his passion to become an entrepreneur and a long standing interest in sleep disorders to become one of the top experts in dental field in the U.S. After spending 15 years as a dentist in New Jersey, Avi Weisfogel believes he has now found the success he always craved because of the passion he is able to bring to his current position as the leader of Dental Sleep Masters.
Throughout his dental career of 15 years Dr. Avi Weisfogel maintained an interest in sleep disorders and the use of many different forms of dental mouth guards used to open the upper airway for those with sleep apnea. The graduate of Rutgers University and the New York University of Dentistry believes dental experts can play a role in sleep disorders and looks to bring evidence of research to the seminars he holds for medical professionals; under the Dental Sleep Masters banner Weisfogel and his associates use their knowledge of sleep disorders to educate dentists around the world about identifying those with sleep apnea and similar issues.
In creating his Dental Sleep Masters group Dr. Avi Weisfogel has looked to develop a new way of looking at sleep disorders that is designed to be of assistance to sleep labs and sleep specialists. Avi Weisfogel understands that around 90 percent of those affected by sleep apnea are unaware they suffer from this condition, which has recently been shown to lead to greater medical issues such as diabetes, stroke, and heart problems. Increasing levels of research are now being done to link dental issues with sleep apnea and should see this become an increasing part of the work completed on a regular basis by dentists around the world, in the view of Dr. Weisfogel.
