Avi Weisfogel has a lot to point to in his dentistry practice including a high patient satisfaction rating and even given the Best Dentist award in New Jersey for his quality work. But he’s turned his career to something else now which is helping patients with sleep apnea find a way to get a good night’s rest using better techniques and comfortable oral appliances. His company where he consults with patients and other dentists is Dental Sleep Masters. He also is the founder of Healthy Heart Sleep and Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient and has been working to fund more research into sleep deprivation and its causes.
Weisfogel began his practice in dentistry after completing his bachelor’s at Rutgers University and receiving his DDS from NYU’s College of Dentistry. He first started practicing at an office in Edison, NJ and then founded an office in Old Bridge where he practiced most of his dentistry career. Even though Weisfogel was known as one of the best dentists in the area, he was never totally satisfied with his job as he told the Ideamensch website in an interview. He did take a particular interest in patients that he saw coming in that appeared to have a lack of sleep and soon started discovering that discomfort in the mouth and in the airways could affect it. He started exploring appliances and recommending dieting and exercise for those with weight problems.
Avi Weisfogel also uses his passion for smiles to help those around the world with mouth disorders and cleft palates. The group he set up a GoFundMe campaign for is Operation Smile, founded by a doctor and his wife who traveled the world and sought to help treat young children in the continents of Africa and Asia that could not afford to be treated in local hospitals. Weisfogel has also held several charity events in the greater New York City area and is a passionate hockey lover and supporter of the New York Rangers.
