Sleep apnea and other breathing related sleep disorders are a growing problem worldwide. But dentist Dr. Avi Weisfogel has found a way to help. He has been exploring ways dental care can help to solve sleep problems ever since he was at the NYU College of Dentistry. His work over the past two decades has helped many patients with sleep disorders to get relief for their issues. Dr. Weisfogel has done all of this while building an award winning dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care. He has also created several organizations designed to get more dentists involved in providing treatment for sleep disorders.
When Dr. Weisfogel opened Old Bridge Dental Care in 1999 he not only provided patients with high-quality dental care, he also began treating a growing number of patients with sleep problems. That led to him being voted Best Dentist numerous times. And his work treating patients with sleep disorder has increased since then. In an effort to help even more patients have dentists assist them with their sleep problems, Dr. Weisfogel founded Healthy Heart Sleep in 2010. Through this organization he has worked with dentists and physicians to show them how they can work together to help address sleep problems plaguing a growing number of people.
Dr. Weisfogel also provides the advice and assistance dentists need to set up and manage sleep clinics. These provide valuable insight into sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. He has also helped to raise awareness about the role dentists can play in assisting patients with sleep problems. While Healthy Heart Sleep has been very effective in doing this, Dr. Weisfogel realized more needed to be done. So in 2012 he created Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient. The focus of this organization has been arranging informative talks to educate dentists and other medical professionals about innovative ways to deal with sleep problems.
In 2014 Dr. Weisfogel took his work to new heights. He established Dental Sleep Masters. This organization shows dentists how to use dental appliances to combat sleep problems. This has been very helpful for both dentists and patients with sleep disorders .
