Weisfogel Advances Sleep Apnea Treatment
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has opened up a new area of treatment and study for dentists around the country. He recently founded the company Dental Sleep Masters, that focuses on a program that diagnoses and treats patients with sleep apnea. Individuals with sleep apnea can experience waking up up to 30 times a night. This can lead to serious health problems such as weight gains, diabetes, high blood pressure and even a stroke.
Realizing the seriousness because up to 90% of individuals with sleep apnea may go diagnosed, Dr. Avi Weisfogel understood how catastrophic this could be for the individual. He also saw a huge opportunity for fellow dentists to assist and grow their practice. In 2014, he founded Dental Sleep Masters, which focuses on a partnership with physicians and dentists in the identification and treatment of sleep apnea. The treatment gets away from the large, noisy and expensive CPAP Machine often prescribed by sleep physicians and labs. Instead it focuses on the recently FDA approved upper airway stimulation method to allow patients to get a good night of rest.
Dr. Wiesfogel founded Dental Sleep Masters after 15 years of dental practice. He has a Bachelor of Art from Rutgers University. He received his Doctor of Dental surgery from New York University. Since 2014, he has been showing and converting hundreds of doctors and dentist to the Dental Sleep Masters program. The integrations of the two professions have come together to demonstrate care that others will try to emulate in the future. Everybody wins, including the patients.
