Avi Weisfogel attended Rutgers University and earned his Bachelor of Arts in both biology and psychology. He then went to the New York University College of Dentistry and was given his Doctor of Dental Surgery certificate. He continues to study and research even after obtaining his degrees and believes in furthering his education as much as possible. Since then, he has built up a large amount of experience in sleep treatment and sleep disorders. He opened his own dental practice in 1999 called Old Bridge Dental Care. During this time, he came known for exceptional dentistry work and founded Healthy Heart Sleep.
Health Heart Sleep is a company that connects doctors all around the world by recommending a network of interconnected sleep labs. This was the push he needed into the world of sleep and he began doing lectures and speaking to other dentists about the use of oral appliances and their relations to sleep disorders in patients and more information click here.
In 2014 he created Dental Sleep Masters in order to continue on the idea about treating sleep disorders that he had in previous years. He has studied and collected a large of information and knowledge on the subject of sleep apnea. He believes this information will help dentists provide the proper treatment for patients and also to determine which patients potentially need their help. Through his research wit Dental Sleep Masters, Dr. Avi Weisfogel realized that over half of all patients with sleep apnea are affected by risk factors such as carrying extra weight, large necks, narrow airways, and chronic nasal infections. That is not to say that someone without these conditions cannot have sleep apnea, however. They are simply less likely to have it than someone who is overweight or sporting a very large neck.
In 2016, Dr. Avi Wseisfogel launched a Go Fund Me program alongside Dental Sleep Masters that intends to help primary and secondary care doctors find the proper treatment for sleep apnea patients. He hopes this will help diagnose more people and get them the help they need since currently over 90% of people with sleep apnea are undiagnosed and resume him.
