Recap: Dr. Avi Weisfogel Treats Sleep Apnea with Dentistry

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is the founder of Dental Sleep Masters, a company with the goal of addressing complications associated with dentistry and sleep disorders. A product of Rutgers and New York University for his undergrad and graduate work respectively, he is at the forefront of bringing dental experts together to combat sleeping disorders, such as sleep apnea.

Through years of working at his practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, Dr. Weisfogel encountered many patients who were having trouble with apnea that was not successfully treated by other means. Taking matters into his own hands, he began his effort to combat the disorder with the foundation of Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012. This think-tank allowed dentists and other experts to communicate more effectively with each other.

Building on this success, Dr. Weisfogel launched the Dental Sleep Master’s Program. He created the program to offer problem-specific treatment to patients, including applied oral therapy – sleepwear which does not obstruct breathing. It also provides appliances that support the jaw of sleeping patients, which helps to keep airways open and prevent the dangerous pauses of apnea sufferers.

These days, Dr. Weisfogel is as busy as ever. Typically rising at 6 a.m., he mentally prepares through prayer and talking to a life coach. He spends his work time doing everything from taking calls, to writing, holding meetings, and speaking with members of his programs and businesses.

Dr. Weisfogel is considered a generous philanthropist and spends much of his spare time doing charitable work, as well as providing donations. Aside from this, he enjoys his time with his family, and keeps himself sharp and up to date with an active reading schedule. With over 20 years and counting of helping others, his high standards and professional ethics drive him to help as many people as he can.
