Dr. Weisfogel’s path to creating better methods of treatment for people suffering from sleep disorders began when he chose to pursue a career in dentistry. Not only did Dr. Avi Weisfogel graduate with his Doctor of Dentistry degree from New York University’s College of Dentistry, but he also obtained his Bachelor’s degree from Rutgers, which was in the fields of biology and psychology. It was this unique educational combination that ultimately led him to establish not one, but several facilities and organizations designed to help both the medical and private communities understand sleep apnea better. Dr. Avi Wesifogel was among the first to discover some key factors that could put a person at risk for a sleep disorder, which included carrying excess weight particularly around the neck.
After establishing his own dental practice in New Jersey, Dr. Weisfogel went on to open a company called Healthy Heart Sleep. This facility had a primary focus of creating better connections between doctors and patients through the use of sleep labs. In an effort to reach as many people in the medical community as possible, Dr. Weisfogel also started Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient, which gave him a chance to present lectures on the causes, effects and treatments available for sleep disorders. This ultimately led to his creation of Dental Sleep Masters, which continues to inform and expand on the information trail Dr. Weisfogel began so many years before.
