Medical professionals over the last years have increasingly realized the negative effects of sleep apnea. New research is helping to clearly show the interrelationship between sleep apnea and conditions such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, and diabetes. With these serious complications surfacing, a renewed study has emerged as a sense of urgency to find sleep apnea treatments. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, founder of the Dental Sleep Masters, is using his extensive experience in sleep disorders to revolutionize the industry.
Dr.Avi Weisfogel leads the cause in trying to diagnose and treat patients suffering from sleep apnea. An estimated 90 percent of the people suffering from sleep apnea remain undiagnosed. This being a timely issue demanding increased awareness, Weisfogel and his team aim to bring a solution to this serious condition. Dental Sleep Masters have come up with a new model for secondary and primary care physicians that also includes sleep labs and certified sleep physicians. This model is a representation of the big picture, which will result in improved patient care and increased opportunities in the medical community.
Doctors and sleep physicians have been grouped together with dentists to offer clinical support to sleep apnea patients. Treatment of this condition is expected to increase and advance in the near future as more discoveries are made. Dentists are expected to find a significant percentage of their practice being directed to sleep apnea treatment and diagnosis.
About Avi Weisfogel
Since he started practicing general dentistry, Avi has been involved in the treatment of patients. His keen interest in business and marketing for dentists is what motivated him to join a number of marketing clubs that dentistry had in store. Regardless of his success in marketing of full mouth rehabs and implants, Avi still couldn’t get a marketing strategy that brought a stream of demand for oral appliances.
In 2010, he abandoned his general practice and opened a firm dedicated to sleep. After much time and resources, Avi came up with a system that created up to 300 oral appliances for patients each month. He has since merged with Barry to establish the Dental Sleep Masters.
