Dental Sleep Masters by Dr. Avi Weisfogel
According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel, sleep disturbances and disorders such as snoring are something that has to do with your oral health. Yes, dentists are the first health professionals to diagnose sleep disorders. According to the National Sleep Foundation, about 18 million Americans have sleep apnea. One of the common symptoms of sleep apnea is bruxism (tooth grinding). Hence, dentists look for worn tooth surfaces; positive signs of tooth grinding.
Dentists are a valuable partner for the treatment of sleep disturbances and disorders like obstructive sleep apnea. They offer treatment options such as wearing oral appliances that can ease the patient’s symptoms and improve overall condition. They also regularly monitor the patients to get the best results.
Unfortunately, not all dentists are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to address the concerns of patients with sleep disturbances. Most dentists focus on general dentistry practice. Some specialize in orthodontics. To expand the dentists’ knowledge of sleep-related disorders and make them a vital member of the healthcare team, Dr. Avi Weisfogel created Dental Sleep Masters.
Dental Sleep Masters
It is a program created by Dr. Avi Weisfogel in 2014. He created the Dental Sleep Masters Program with one goal in mind and that is to help dentists break into the world of sleep by using the correct oral appliances to address sleep-related problems like sleep apnea.
Dr. Avi started his practice as a general dentist. He fixes teeth just like what dentists are supposed to be doing. He noticed that apart from oral concerns, many patients complain of sleep-related problems in which the majority of the symptoms have something to do with the oral health. In 2010, he left general dentistry practice and open a company dedicated to sleep-related issues.
Dr. Avi developed a system that helped him create about 300 oral appliances for patients every month. He has been teaching this system to others until such time that he created Dental Sleep Masters. The said program aims to reach to a huge number of dentists, physicians, and patients so as to significantly improve the health care distribution in the world of sleep medicine.
Challenges Along the Way
Dr. Avi Weisfogel takes a complete turn; from someone fixing teeth to fixing sleeping problems. From a general dentist, he entered the business world, which is quite of a challenge, given the fact that he does not have any prior business experience. Dr. Avi did face serious obstacles along the way.
Although millions of Americans suffer from sleeping problems like sleep apnea, still such topic is something that is not known to many. To spread awareness, Dr. Avi does not only focus on educating the patient but as well as the professionals who work closely with the patients. Dr. Weisfogel invested a significant amount of time and money into creating Dental Sleep Masters.
Today, Dental Sleep Masters is one of the few medical services company specializing in providing quality staff and fully operational sleep study center in various fields such as medical practice, office, and business. Medical businesses and facilities can have a highly functional sleep study clinic inside their premise without having the need to be involved in daily operations. If they wish to, medical professionals can freely partake in the program.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been in dental practice for over 15 years now. He is an experienced sleep treatment expert and the owner of Dental Sleep Masters Program and International Academy of Sleep. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University. He had his degree in dentistry from New York University. He currently works with dentists and sleep professionals to address sleep-related issues.
