Sleep apnea is a condition experienced by many people around the world. People with this condition do not receive a full night’s sleep, because their air passageway prevents them from breathing correctly. This in turn, prevents them from experiencing REM sleep. Lack of sleep could contribute to everything from an unsightly appearance to impaired thinking. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has taken an interest in the effects and causes of sleep apnea. This interest led him to create a facility known as Dental Sleep Masters in order to bring more information about sleep apnea to the medical community. As a practicing dentist, Dr. Weisfogel has become very familiar with many of the physical indications for sleep apnea, which could include loss of hair, pooling of blood beneath the eyes and a dulled complexion.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has spent more than 25 years as a practicing dentist in the New Jersey area. During this time he created several organizations and companies designed specifically to help find more effective treatments for sleeping disorders. One of the first companies Dr. Weisfogel founded was Healthy Heart Sleep. This company was established as a way to connect with other professionals in the fields of medicine and dentistry to help create better management systems for sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. This also became a means through which Dr. Weisfogel could collaborate with others about his own ideas for the treatment of sleep apnea. Two years after launching Health Heart Sleep, Dr. Weisfogel created Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient as a medium through which he could provide lectures to other dentists on how to best serve patients with sleep apnea.
In addition to the qualifications Dr. Avi Weisfogel has as an experienced dentist, he also holds a Bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology, which he obtained from Rutgers University. Along with the work he has done to help improve the treatment of sleep apnea, Dr. Weisfogel has also taken an interest in helping children from impoverished countries receive better oral care. In an effort to assist Operation Smile with the surgeries they perform, he established a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise money to support their efforts.
