Avi Weisfogel and The Studies Of Sleep Apnea

Avi Weisfogel was born in New Jersey in the year of 1972. He started his career as a dentist working at Old Bridge Dental Care. Since then Weisfogel has dabbled into many different titles such as philanthropist, an entrepreneur and dentist. He has six beautiful children whom he raises in East Brunswick. Dr. Avi still manages to find the time to launch a campaign geared to helping children with facial deformities.

Avi started a GoFundMe campaign that dealt with children deformities such as cleft palates and cleft lips. Not only is he a philanthropist, he has also worked more than 15 years as a successful dental practitioner and sleep specialist. He is deemed as a leading specialist when it comes to sleep analysis.Avi Weisfogel is the Co-Founder of the Dental Sleep Master Program. This program provides other dentists and practitioners the coaching and training needed to implement the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea.

Under clinical care, the observance of sleep apnea revealed that individuals could wake up at least 30 times in one night. It was very clear a treatment was needed to stimulate the airway passages of these patients. In 2014, FDA approved an upper airway stimulator, however, this was only the beginning and more alternative treatments began to develop. During his studies, Dr. Avi assisted with the creation of an oral appliance used to treat the disorder. The devices are so small that they can be used without any bothersome machinery or irritating masks. These devices are used to successfully treat and resolve the issues of sleep apnea patients today.
