The founder and head of New Jersey-headquartered Dental Sleep Masters, Dr. Avi Weisfogel, has deep-rooted mastery of sleep disorders and sleep treatment. Upon earning his dental surgery degree, he set up his dental practice known as Old Bridge Dental Care in 1999. He oversaw the operations of the office for over 15 years, bagging awards from the dentistry community. He was the holder of the Best Dentist Award for a couple of years.
Exploring the sleep medicine sector
Dr. Weisfogel started delving in the sleep medicine scene and researching on the ways dentists and doctors can offer innovative treatment to people suffering from sleep disorders. In 2010, he inaugurated Healthy Heart Sleep, a top-notch firm that worked closely with physicians globally and instructed them on the procedure of setting up and managing sleep labs.
In 2012, Dr. Weisfogel launched the Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient and started educating dentists on the process of increasing and delivering better care to sleep patients. He made a great stride in the world of sleep after launching Dental Sleep Masters in 2014. The organization specialized in assisting dentists to create effective sleep labs through utilization of oral appliances for treatment of sleep complications.
Sleep apnea’s risk groups
While anyone of any age can suffer from sleep apnea, risk factors rise substantially with age and excess weight. Nearly 50 percent of patients diagnosed with sleep apnea are overweight, a link that may be as a result of the location of fat deposits and the chance of these deposits squeezing the airway. The presence of fat deposits in the neck and waist region may be risky. However, sleep apnea is by no means limited to excess weight.
Reasons behind the formation of Dental Sleep Masters (DSM)
Dr. Weisfogel boasts 15 years of dental experience. However, he always had an unwavering passion for the arena of sleep medicine. He combined his passions with his superior marketing abilities and created a unique niche. As the head of DSM, Dr. Weisfogel enjoys scheduling everything to keep himself productive. He reaches to the office at 6 a.m. and prays for approximately one hour. He talks to his life coach for at least an hour. Dr. Weisfogel spends the rest of the day picking calls, chairing business meetings, speaking with members, and penning down blog posts.
