AviWeisfogel’s Work On Sleep Apnea
AviWeisfogel is the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, a firm which helps dental practices address patients sleep apnea problems. Sleep apnea is a serious condition where breathing during sleep stop, sometimes for very long times. Due to this not enough oxygen gets into the person’s body, and especially the brain. This can lead to a large number of health issues including diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, and heart failure. It can also lead drowsy people driving cars to nod off and cause a serious or even fatal accident.
In 1994 AviWeisfogel graduated from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey-New Brunswick with a degree in biology. He obtained his DDS, Dentistry in 1998 from the NYU College of Dentistry. He operated his own dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in 1996 in New Jersey. He took a strong interest in the issue of sleep apnea and how dentistry could help people who suffer from it. With Dental Sleep Masters he has created a model for other dentists to follow that is far more likely to be followed by patients; Weisfogel says that 90% of patients follow it. He also educates and coaches dentists about sleep apnea and how oral appliance therapy can be used to help patients. Additionally, AviWeisfogel works with physicians as well that are helping patients with this issue by installing a Sleep Study Center into their practice. A Sleep Study Center, which is run by Dental Sleep Masters, allows staff to research and monitor patient’s breathing while they are asleep inside of it.
AviWeisfogel recently conducted an interview with ideamensch. During the interview he said that during the first 15 years of his career was when he developed his strong interest in sleep issues. He realized that, because of his background also including marketing, he would be ideally suited to addressing the issue with his own business. He went on to say that the best strategy he has used with Dental Sleep Masters is to pursue regional marketing which makes it much easier to physicians and dentists to find out about his company and what he does.
