Getting up close and personal with Dr. Avi Weisfogel of Dental Sleep Masters

Statistics show that more than 80 percent of the people who have sleep disorders haven’t even received a proper diagnosis of the same. The owner of Dental Sleep Masters, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been working on getting workable treatments for different sleep disorders for many years now. He started his first dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in New Jersey in 1999 and had been operating there for the past 15 years. The community of Jersey has given him many accolades for his extraordinary achievements and superior quality customer service.

 

When he was operating the dental practice, he developed an interest in sleep disorders and wanted to see if there were a ways doctors and other health workers could be of help to people suffering from the issues. He established Healthy Heart Sleep in 2010. This company has been working with physicians from all parts of the world and giving them the advice and support they need to establish their sleep labs. Two years later, he started another initiative, the Unlimited Sleep Patient. The initiative focused on helping dentists to identify patients who had sleep disorders and devise ways of helping them overcome them.

 

He accepted to be interviewed by Ideamensch about the journey it has taken him towards the current success in dealing with sleep disorders. Currently, there is a therapy that he and his team had been working on for the treatment of sleep apnea by stimulating the upper airways, and the machine they devised to use in the process has gotten FDA approval. The forum is what he has been using to identify patients that have sleep apnea and get them treatment.

 

Avi says that he goes to the office as early as 6 am. He likes speaking to his life coach and praying as these two activities give him perspective and at the same time keep grounded. Avi states that he is most fascinated by the ability to interact with different people from various industries across the globe. He adds that the only thing he would do if he were to start his journey again, is to approach it with more humility. He is a real inspiration.
