When thinking about who can help them deal with their sleep issues, most people wouldn’t think of a dentist. Dr. Avi Weisfogel says they would be incorrect in this assumption because dentists can help people get a good nights rest. He has helped to develop a number of ways that dentists can treat sleep apnea including through the use of dental appliances that the patient uses each night while sleeping to treat their issue.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel started out his university education by earning a B.A. in both Psychology and Biology at Rutgers University. He then attended New York University and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery. Upon earning his medical degree he headed to New Jersey and started his own sole dental practice in 1996, Old Bridge Dental Care. He became a very popular dentist in the region, twice earning the best dentist award amongst his peers.
While treating his patients, Dr. Avi Weisfogel began to learn that a lot of them suffered from sleep issues. He thought about the ways his profession could help people dealing with these issues. He eventually developed a number of effective treatments. In 2012 he decided to pursue this area and established a company called Unlimited Sleep Patients which served as a think-tank for those in both the dentist and physician industries to share their viewpoints and best practices.
Dr. Weisfogel now operates Dental Sleep Masters, a company that is focused on the latest sleep appliances, in particular on oral appliances. The patient puts the appliance in their mouth once they’re ready for bed and it helps them to maintain healthy breathing patterns during the night which resolves the issue of sleep apnea.
