The busy individual may overlook the effects that a lack of restful sleep can have on their professional lives. An even more surprising factor in sleep deprivation is how one’s oral health can directly impact the hours of quality sleep experience at night. Dental professional Avi Weisfogel detected a trend early on between dentistry and getting relief from sleep apnea and other disorders. Weisfogel used this experience and knowledge to create Dental Sleep Masters.
Started in 2014, the Dental Sleep Masters program uses Avi Weisfogel’s expertise on treating sleep disorders by educating professionals on how to properly diagnose patients and provide the needed devices and applications. Weisfogel has used this platform to reach numerous dentists around the world and his program currently helps hundreds of patients each month. His success can be attributed by teaching practices that treat each patient individually and finding personalized solutions.
Inspiration for Dental Sleep Masters came from the time Avi Weisfogel spent with Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients, another program that he founded. The program’s mission was to bring dental professionals and sleep experts together to discuss the relationship between the two fields and formulate solutions. Weisfogel used Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients to design the most practical business models for treating sleep disorders and help experts to conduct lab studies.
Prior to his success through the Dental Sleep Masters program, Avi Weisfogel established a solid reputation for himself through his career as a dental health professional. Weisfogel began his higher education at Rutgers University where he graduated with a BA in psychology and biology. He continued education at the College of Dentistry at New York University and earned a DDS. Shortly after, Avi Weisfogel created a dental practice in 1999 and served his local community for over a decade.
Weisfogel’s dedication to treating sleep disorders through dentistry stems from his career at his dental practice. He was quick to recognize the recurring patterns of patients complaining of sleep deprivation and their oral health. The research into the various issues encouraged Avi Weisfogel to focus his efforts on specifically treating sleep disorders through the education of other dental professionals and patients.
