Dr. Avi Weisfogel:Using Dentistry To Treat Sleep Disorders

For a growing number of people around the world breathing related sleep problems are a serious issue for which effective treatment is hard to find. To help these patients, for over two decades Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been experimenting with ways dentistry can be used to helping sleep patients to find relief.

Dr. Weisfogel now spends a great deal of his time working with dentists worldwide to teach them ways in which they too can use their dental training and facilities to help people suffering with a wide array of sleep problems.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel‘s interest in the relationship between dentistry and sleep issues began while he was a student at New York University School of Dentistry. Even as he mastered the techniques that would earn him awards for his work in general and cosmetic dentistry when he opened Old Bridge Dental Care in 1999, he continued to do research on how dentists could help people with sleep problem. His ongoing research has led him to make several breakthroughs in the treatment of sleep problems related to breathing using dentistry techniques. And he is on a mission to help other dentists learn how to use those techniques.

One way he’s done this is through the establishment of Healthy Heart Sleep, Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient and Dental Sleep Masters. These organizations have provided Dr. Weisfogel with the team and the platform to reach out to dentists worldwide and talk to them about the dental techniques he has identified that can also be used to provide much needed help for people with sleep issues like sleep apnea. Dr. Weisfogel also helps dentists to set up and manage sleep labs so they too will be able to begin addressing the growing problem of breathing related sleep issues.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s work has been a boon to people finding it impossible to get adequate sleep to maintain good health. A growing number of dentists have also benefitted because working with sleep patients have enabled them to expand their practices and become more profitable.
