Avi Weisfogal is both a sleep disorder specialist and a dentist. In 1999, he founded Old Bridge Dental Care and collected several accolades for Best Dentists over the course of the next 15 years. It was also during this time he started to extensively study the phenomenon of sleep. In doing so, he figured out how dentists and sleep specialists can work together to help patients overcome sleep disorders.
From there, he went on to found multiple companies that study sleep-related disorders. In 2014, he launched Dental Sleep Masters to help break through the disorders through usage of oral appliances. Dr.Avi Weisfogal specializes in sleep apnea and is always searching for ways to help break through it.
Sleep apnea has been known to increase the risks of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and strokes. As a result, there has been an increasingly urgent need to figure out ways to combat sleep apnea and Dr. Weisfogal is considered to be one of the top leading experts helping to advance the cause. The scariest fact is that over 90 percent of the population who struggles with sleep apnea remain undiagnosed often throughout their whole lives.
Dental Sleep Masters has very recently designed and established a new model that can be shared not only between primary and secondary physicians. It can also transfer to certified sleep labs and physician so that they will be better able to work as teams to combat this serious issue. This is also great news as the old methods don’t seem to have been very effective for a lot of patients. Treatments are also becoming smaller in size and increasingly more effective due to being more user-friendly.
