Sleep Apnea Patients Receive Better Care Through Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s Organization, Dental Sleep Masters
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a specialized sleep apnea researcher and doctor with extensive knowledge on the relationship between sleep disorders and dental complications. He began his career working in his practice Old Bridge Dental Care in 1999 where he served for 15 years. During Avi’s tenure at the firm, he was the recipient of several awards honoring his expertise in dentistry. Recently, he recalled his experience at the practice and revealed that the job did not motivate him or inspire any satisfaction. After ignoring his interests in studying and treating sleep apnea for several years, Dr. Avi branched out to start sleep laboratories that would help physicians conclusively consider the field. He worked with practitioners from around the world to through his firm Healthy Heart Sleep to manage the sleep labs.
Dr. Avi started Owner Sleep Patient in 2012 to offer dentists with information on his findings on how dentists can effectively care for sleep apnea patients. In 2014, he began Dental Sleep Masters to delve deeper into the case study and widen the opportunities for dentists to manage sleep apnea conditions using oral appliances. One of the available technologies that physicians use is the FDA approved THN Sleep Therapy device that is the development of ImThera Medical. Dental Sleep Masters notes that most patients do not interact well with traditional methodologies of treatment and has opted to adopt a new range of devices to realize the same goals. The new devices are smaller and less noisy in comparison to their predecessor, hence encourage patients to check in for sessions regularly.
Dental Sleep Masters allows physicians and dentists to combine efforts while still maintaining flexibility with ownership of their independent practices. The firm has a training model that equips these professionals with the required skills for sleep apnea treatments and markets their expertise to bring in more patients. Dr. Avi aims to help physicians spend less time and effort handling non-medical issues such as marketing so that they can maximize their effectiveness in sleep apnea treatment. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a Rutgers University alumnus where he earned his bachelor’s in psychology and biology. He also has a DDS from the dentistry school of New York University College.
