Sleep medicine, dental experience and knowing how to market the pitch to the right group is what Dr. Avi Weisfogel, the owner of Dental Sleep Masters has become known for. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been one of the more reputable dentists over the years in the New Brunswick, NJ area, and he discovered not long ago that he could do something new with dentistry in joining the endeavor to fight sleep apnea. He founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 and primarily offers information through publications and seminars to other dentists and physicians on treating sleep disorders. He also researches oral appliances and recommends them to patients that have special needs to clear their airways.
Dr. Weisfogel came from a medical family in Highland Park, NJ where his father was a cardiologist at a local hospital. Weisfogel wasn’t only interested in people’s physical health as he entered the medical profession, he’s also been very interested in how people think, so it was no surprise he chose to study psychology as well as biology at Rutgers University. He went to the New York University College of Dentistry where he got his DDS in 1996. He then practiced for 16 years at a clinic known as Old Bridge Dental Care.
During his time in dental practice he earned several honorary recognitions including Best Dentist. He was always known for being a kind and caring dentist and he’s always loved smiles, yet he started losing some of his passion for it over the years. He started noticing that few medical professionals were doing anything about sleep disorders, so he decided to enter the niche and started up Healthy Heart Sleep in 2005 and eventually that became his current business at DSM and contact him.
Weisfogel has Facebook and Twitter pages where he goes to discuss some of the newest medical technology as well as post about his favorite sports teams. He also started a campaign at GoFundMe to support Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a non-profit medical foundation that makes treatments possible for children with mouth and dental deformities. Weisfogel is also married and has two young children and more information click here.
