Avi Weisfogel has been working with dentists and sleep physicians for several years though he started his company, Dental Sleep Masters a little more recently in 2014. Weisfogel has discovered many things that cause patients to lose sleep from large necks and the size of their airways and other healthy eating and exercise habits. He’s researched into mouthpieces and non-obtrusive sleep instruments and given other tips on improving breathing support while sleeping. He decided to talk to Ideamensch about the work he does at DSM and how he came to do it.
Avi Weisfogel told Ideamensch he had gotten interested in sleep medicine while practicing regular dentistry and also knew several things about business marketing, and so he decided to take the things he knew and combine them into a new idea. He has a day spent preparing mentally in the morning with a life coach and then attending to business matters in the afternoons. He’s talked about using regional marketing as the best way to help people find DSM and he loves using mass online communications to speak with people around the world. Weisfogel’s favorite author is Eckhart Tolle who’s bestselling book is The Power of Now, and he points to Steve Jobs as his favorite entrepreneur. Watch Video Here .
Avi Weisfogel came from the Newark, NJ area and got his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers and later entered dentistry at the College of Dentistry at NYU. For about 15 years he practiced at the offices of Old Bridge Dentistry in a suburb of Newark, and he performed his job very well earning great patient reviews and even given the Best Dentist award several times. Yet Weisfogel by his own words never truly felt “passionate” about his practice, but when he started noticing people struggling with sleep and saw the relation to dental work and medicine he decided to pursue the field completely.
In addition to his work at DSM, Weisfogel is also using GoFundMe to help bring awareness to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is there to help provide treatments for certain dental and facial disorders including cleft lips for young children around the world. Weisfogel is also passionate about sports including hockey and basketball and also has put together various music tracks on his Soundcloud page.
