Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a renowned expert in sleep disorders and he is highly sought after for the treatment of sleep related problems. In order to help the medical community take better care of sleep apnea sufferers, he founded the company Dental Sleep Masters. Avi founded his first dental practice back in 1999. During his 15 year tenure, he earned many prizes and recognition from his fellow dentists and was even selected as the best dentists in his local community many times. Avi was always interested in sleep throughout his dental practice because he found that many of his patients who sat in his dental chair suffered from this problem. He wanted to solve the puzzle of how to help these people. Few people will go to a medical doctor to get help with a sleeping problem. Far more people see dentists on a regular basis. Also, some dental disorders were related to sleep problems.
Avi founded Dental Sleep masters in 2014 to make it easier for dentists all around the world to treat people with sleep disorders. Some aspects of sleep disorders can be treated with the tools dentists readily have available to them. With in-depth knowledge of sleep apnea dental experts can easily identify sleep apnea in patients they are treating and put them on the path to treatment so that they can rest easier and secure their health. Left undiagnosed sleep apnea can be a dangerous problem with long term health consequences.
Recent research has implicated sleep apnea in severe illnesses like diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Dental Sleep Masters was founded so that no one who regularly visits a dental chair will have to suffer from these sleep related problems needlessly. Its main goal is to raise awareness of sleep apnea and to train dentists and other medical professionals in the methods of properly diagnosing it. For this purpose, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has created an innovative sleep apnea model for primary and secondary care physicians. This model can also be of use to certified sleep physicians and all the employees of their sleep labs. By shining light on this condition the health of people all over can be improved.
