Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a New Jersey dentist who established his dental practice in 1999 and won several community awards for his excellence as a dentist. He practiced dentistry very successfully for 15 years and during that time he noticed that some of his patients were having difficulties with sleep apnea. When he asked about what treatments they were taking to alleviate the problem, he found that the treatments were all over the ballpark without much in the way of results happening.
Consequently, he began his study of the matter and came up with solutions that worked and helped his patients. He even invented some devices that help patients position their jaw while sleeping that eliminated the sleep apnea problems. Sleep apnea is a medical condition where the tongue relaxes to the extent that a person’s breathing can stop periodically as the tongue falls back against the throat while the person is asleep.
In 2012, Dr. Weisfogel established an extension to his practice in this sleep study area, and in 2014 he established Dental Sleep Masters where he was not only treating patients, but he was lecturing other dentists on how they could help their patients too in this area.
At this point in his career, Dr. Weisfogel has accumulated an in-depth amount of data and knowledge on the subject of sleep apnea and how to give patients relief, and he is in high demand in his quest to spread the word to the other dentists.
His days and weeks are busy, and he spends the bulk of his time reaching out to other dentists and promoting his work as much as he can. He said that he works with a life coach who is like a “second brain” as he keeps Dr. Weisfogel on a straight path to the most prominent objectives for the day.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has found that one thing that excites him is the ability to reach out with his findings to people from all over the world about the techniques he has discovered and the remedies that work for the relief from sleep apnea.
When asked about the one thing that he has done that has helped him to grow his business, and he answers that he likes to have a similar conversation with different people and he gets all kinds of great ideas that way.
