Shortly after graduating from the New York University School of Dentistry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel founded his first dental practice, Old Bridge Dental. Over the next 10 years, he built his practice into one of the preeminent dental offices in central New Jersey. Throughout this period, Dr. Weisfogel still found time to pursue his passion for medical research. Over the course of a few years, he slowly had an epiphany. Dentist had traditionally only focused on their main field of treating dental ailments. But dentists were also trained medical professionals who could potentially be used to detect and treat illnesses traditionally outside the scope of their profession, in the earliest stages, while those diseases are most treatable and more information click here.

Dr. Weisfogel knew that many patients who saw the dentist oftentimes avoided seeing their general care practitioners. In fact, dentists were often the sole medical professional that many patients saw over the course of five to ten years. This stems from the nature of dental disease. Somebody who wishes to postpone a routine physical checkup could easily do so for a number of years without immediate consequence. But somebody suffering from an ailment such as an abscessed tooth or cavity could not delay treatment of those conditions without enduring serious pain. For this reason, Dr. Weisfogel recognized dentists could serve as a vanguard on the front lines of trading some of the most underdiagnosed and deadly diseases in the country.

It was this insight that finally compelled Dr. Weisfogel to found Dental sleep Masters. This innovative program reaches dentist across the country through seminars and training materials designed to convert dentists into multidisciplinary medical professionals. The program currently focuses mostly on the treatment of sleep apnea, one of the most underdiagnosed and deadly diseases in America. The program has been a resounding success, with some dentists having such thriving sleep Dentistry practices that they have abandoned their traditional dental practice all together and learn more about Avi Weisfogel.
