Dr. Avi Weisfogel grew up dreaming of being a dentist. He eventually earned his DDS, Dentistry from the New York University College of Dentistry. He owned his own dental practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, for almost 20 years, having founded it in 1996. During his career as a dentist, he performed extensive research into how dentists such as himself could help their patients who suffer from sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea which can prove deadly.
Today, Dr. Weisfogel is the owner of Dental Sleep Masters wich is headquartered in New Jersey. He holds seminars around the United States where he shares his expertise in sleep disorders with dentists and physicians. Earlier, in 2010, he had founded Healthy Heart Sleep which placed sleep labs into doctors offices and managed them. He also founded Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012 where he provided his guidance to dentists about how they could help patients with sleep disorders. Dental Sleep Masters was established in 2014.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel found his passion in addressing sleep issues. Ironically, he says the worst job he ever had was as a dentist as over the course of his career he lost his passion for it. Helping people avoid the effects of sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea, is something he is excited to now be doing.
As he is a big believer in giving back to the community, Dr. Weisfogel launched a GoFundMe page in order to contribute to Operation Smile. Operation Smile provides disadvantaged children around the world free dental work and surgery. A big part of the charity is providing cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries for children that suffer from the birth defect. Depending on the country, Operation Smile needs to send in teams of surgeons, dentists, equipment, and medical supplies. Dr. Weisfogel feels that all children should be cared for and this is just one part of how he gives back.
