While Dr. Avi Weisfogel was studying to become a dentist at NYU College of Dentistry he began to learn that dentists can help patients with sleep apnea and other sleep issues. The idea so fascinated him he’s been researching ways to use dentistry to help alleviate sleep problems ever since. And over the past 20 years he has been able to help countless people with sleep problems through the work he does at his dental practice.
A talented, dedicated, innovative dentist, Dr. Avi Weisfogel opened his first practice, Old Bridge Dental Care in 1999. Countless of his patients raved about the high-quality care he provided. He was even voted Best Dentist several times. But Dr. Weifogel’s interest in the link between dental care and sleep problems never wanted. Through Old Bridge Dental Care he helped a large number of patients address their sleep problems. But he yearned to do more as he identified the potential for a breakthrough for dentists to help patients dealing with sleep issues.
To help more dentists and physicians to collaborate to help patients with sleep problems, in 2010 Dr. Weisfogel founded Healthy Heart Sleep. This allowed him to reach out to medical professionals all over the world and make them aware of the great potential dental services had for helping people with sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. He also provided advice and assistance for dentists as well as physicians that were interested in setting up sleep labs to learn more about sleep problems and work on solutions. Dr. Weisfogel even showed them how to manage the labs and run them efficiently.
Even with the great inroads he was able to make through Healthy Heart Sleep, Dr. Weifogel knew there was much more he could do. In 2012 he set up Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient. This created a vehicle through which he could give informative talks on the role they could play in addressing sleep problems, create an addition income stream and perform a valuable service. Dr. Weisfogel then founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 to teach dentists ways to treat sleep disorders using oral appliances.
