Sleep science is a field not talked about much, but as technology increases demands in the workforce and more people are working longer hours and not getting nearly the amount of sleep they need. And that’s why Dr. Avi Weisfogel is working in the field to help people understand what they need to do to get that rest. Weisfogel specifically studies sleep apnea and how other health problems relate to it. But he also studies how treating parts of the mouth and using appliances can help, and he knows about the mouth from having spent 15 years in dentistry.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel publishes his research and dental sleep tips through his current company Dental Sleep Masters. From early morning till evening, Weisfogel manages quite an agenda, according to Ideamensch. From meeting with his life coach, reading up on sleep aid technology, meeting with clients, scheduling seminars and everything else in between, Weisfogel does it all. But his schedule wasn’t always this way.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel entered dentistry back in 1999 after completing his bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology at Rutgers University, and then getting his DDS from the college of dentistry at NYU. His clinic at Old Bridge Dental Care had a great reputation for being well-run and exhibiting good customer service. Dr. Weisfogel even was given the best dentist award for that region several times, yet he felt he wasn’t in the right profession at the time.
Dr. Weisfogel began exploring sleep science around 2005 and by 2012 had started consulting with sleep doctors and sharing the information through Healthy Heart Sleep. In 2014 he officially opened the doors of Dental Sleep Masters and hasn’t looked back since. Weisfogel does spend some spare time working with charities including the world-renowned Operation Smile that he’s started fundraisers for at GoFundMe.
