AviWeisfogel is a person who trained as a dentist and lives in Old Bridge, New Jersey. He had his own dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, since January 1999 and managed it for over 15 years. Dr. AviWeisfogel earned his Bachelor’s Degrees in Biology and Psychology from Rutgers University. He earned his DDS Dentistry degree from the New York University College of Dentistry. Dr. Weisfogel also founded and operates Dental Sleep Masters where he teaches seminars about how to treat sleep disorders with a focus on sleep apnea.
While he had his practice Dr. Weisfogel won Best Dentist from his community in a number of different years. While running his practice he researched how dentists could help people who are suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea serious disorder where people that suffer from it will stop breathing at night, sometimes for extended periods of time. This causes a lack of oxygen to the body and brain which can result in stroke, diabetes, heart disease, and death. It also leads to numerous accidents, especially involving a car, as people who suffer from sleep apnea tend to be drowsy and not as alert as they should be. His goal with Dental Sleep Masters is to help dentists learn how to treat sleep apnea through prescribing oral appliances that the patient can use at night which helps treat this disorder.
In an interview with ideamensch Dr. Weisfogel says he came up with the idea of Dental Sleep Masters through his interest in sleep disorders and realizing that it was a niche in the world of dentistry that wasn’t being fulfilled. He actually wasn’t sorry to leave his dental practice as he eventually discovered it wasn’t something that he was passionate about. He doesn’t regret starting out in dentistry but he is much more fulfilled in spreading the word about how dentists can help with sleep apnea than working as a dentist himself.
