Avi Weisfogel, DDS is the creator of the Dental Sleep Masters Model. Sleep treatment is a relatively new area of science that many dentists are becoming interested in. Using oral appliances to help alleviate sleep problems is becoming more and more popular. It has been reported that 90 percent of people with obstructive sleep apnea are not even aware of their condition.
Dr. Weisfogel’s goal was to use a tested practice model to help dentists diagnose and treat patients more effectively. Sleep apnea is related to serious conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. By increasing the diagnose procedures, more people can get the help they need to stay healthy for a longer period of time.
The new system created has helped both primary and secondary care physicians to identify the condition more often as well. Physicians and dentists alike can help offer clinical support to suffers of sleep apnea. As more things are discovered, it is believed that the opportunities in the field will increase. As new devices evolve, more people will respond positively to them and therefore the industry will grow.
Most earlier devices were too large and bulky to help suffers, because they were uncomfortable. As they get smaller and smaller, there will be more demand for the devices.
Dr. Weisfogel established his own dental practice in 1989. He managed the office for over 15 years. During this time, he began researching sleep problems and how dentists could help patients get better sleep. He started several companies related to the sleep disorder problem.
In 2014. Dr. Avi Weisfogel started Dental Sleep Masters. He holds seminars and workshops to help dentists and physicians learn about the benefits of the treatments available. He earned a BA Degree in biology from Rutgers. He earned is DDS from New York University.
