Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by blockage of a patient’s airways. The disease is caused by fats accumulating around the neck and, consequently, choking the airways. It is predominantly found among the old folk and individuals suffering from other conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Over 70 percent of people suffering from sleep apnea are not privileged enough to get special attention from specialists, but one dentist from New Jersey is committed to change this situation. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been attending to sleep apnea patients as from 2014 through his firm, Dental Sleep Masters (DSM). DSM is based in Essex County, New Jersey. Dr. Weisfogel works alongside several affiliate doctors.
Avi’s Career Path
A qualified doctor of dental surgery, Avi Weisfogel has been in the dental practice for a period spanning over 15 years. His breakthrough into the practice came in 1999 when he opened Old Bridge Dental Care. His exemplary service to the community earned him both praises and accolades, with the most coveted of all being named as the Best Dentist. At the height of his dental career, Weisfogel developed an interest in understanding sleep disorders. The more he understood, the more his passion towards helping sleep apnea patients grew. Weisfogel finally followed his passion and established Healthy Heart Sleep in 2010, a firm that trained physicians on handling sleep apnea patients. As a consequence of this training, most of these physicians ended up establishing and managing sleep labs. This was Weisfogel’s first significant contribution in the field of sleep disorders. He set up Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012, a firm that prepared dentists for research and practice in the world of sleep.
Avi Supports GoFundMe Campaign
Operation Smile initiated a GoFundMe Campaign with the aim of raising $2000. The campaign received a significant boost when Avi Weisfogel decided to support it. The money accumulated via the GoFundMe campaign will be channeled towards providing free surgeries to children and youths with cleft lips and cleft palate conditions. Speaking in an interview, Weisfogel said that he supported the movement as a show of the faith he has in Operation Smile.
