When he started his career as a dentist, little did he know that he would be a leader in the fight against sleep apnea. Dr. Avi Weisfogel graduated from the New York University with a DDS and worked as a dentist for the best part of his life.
His passion and extensive research in the sleep disorder led him to pause his profession and focus on something else. He understood that sleep apnea had a close relation to serious diseases like diabetes. He embarked on a journey to try and find a solution to this problem. He was motivated by the fact that many physicians were beginning to associate the development of conditions like the cardiovascular disease to the sleep disorder. His primary focus was to help patients who were battling this silent killer.
He understood that professional collaboration was the key to successfully fighting sleep apnea. In 2010 he contributed to establish Healthy Heart Sleep, a company that brought together physicians from across the world and help them create and manage sleep labs. These sleep labs were seen as useful tools for studying and understanding patients with the sleep disorder condition.
He also opened the Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient, which was a platform that was used to lecture dentists and physicians on how they can handle their patients. The platform also contained information that highlighted key symptoms for sleep apnea. He also opened Dental Sleep Masters to share information and recent findings that could help physicians understand their patients.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel believes that the sleep disorder condition can be handled only through collaboration and through technological innovation.
Avi Weisfogel attended the Rutgers University and graduated with a BA in Biology and joined the New York University and graduated with Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He has remained an influential figure in the research on sleep apnea.
