Getting quality sleep is essential to having a productive day. Unfortunately, many people suffer from chronic sleep deprivation that hurts their quality of life. Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by the inability to breathe for up to a minute while you are sleeping. Many people are unaware that they have the disorder until they are diagnosed by a sleep specialist.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a dentist who is pioneering the fight against sleep apnea. His innovative surgical techniques have successfully treated patients suffering from the debilitating problem. In 2012, he founded the Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients (OUSP) organization. OUSP focuses on fostering collaboration among doctors specializing in sleep disorders and experienced dentists in order to discover possible solutions.
Dr. Weisfogel later founded Dental Sleep Masters (DSM). DSM’s mission is to cure sleep disorders through properly matching patients with a treatment appropriate for them. Treatments can range from the use of a sleeping appliance to prescriptions for an application that provides jaw support while patients sleep. These innovative solutions have solved many of Dr. Weisfogel’s patients’ sleep disorders and cemented his legacy as a premiere medical researcher.
Dr. Weisfogel’s educational career began by earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology from Rutgers University. He went on to become a Doctor of Dental Surgery through New York State University. He then opened his own award-winning dental practice called Old Bridge Dental Care. Dr. Weisfogel has been innovating outstanding patient care in his field as a licensed dentist for over twenty years.
