Dr. Avi Weisfogel:Offering New Treatment Options For People With Sleep Disordersv

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a well-respected dentist with decades of experience providing the highest quality standard and cosmetic dentistry services. A graduate of Rutgers University with degrees in biology and psychology, Dr. Weisfogel earned his DDS at NYU College of Dentistry. While in dental school in the 1990s, he began hearing about how dentistry can be used to help to treat sleep disorders. When he set up his practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in New Jersey in 1999, in addition to providing award-winning dental care, he also started doing research on ways he could treat people with sleep problems.


Over the past 20 years, Dr. Weisfogel has enjoyed a great deal of success. His dental patients have voted him ‘Dentist of the Year’ many times and he has made major breakthroughs in the treatment of patients with sleep disorders. Dr. Weisfogel has even figured out a number of ways to use oral appliances to address the sleep problems of patients with sleep apnea and other breathing related sleep disorders. Rather than hide his discoveries and attempt to keep all the sleep patients for himself, Dr. Weisfogel set out to make as many dentists as he could aware of how they could help sleep patients and make their dental practices more prosperous.


He has done this by lecturing all around the world, teaching dentists how to set up and manage sleep labs and showing them the cutting-edge techniques he has developed to address the problem of sleep disorders. The response to his work has been excellent. Sleep patients are ecstatic about having access to a growing number of medical professionals that can help them. Dentists all around the globe have been happy to be able to help sleep patients while expanding the reach of their dental practices and the number of patients they serve. It has been a winning strategy for all involved.


When Dr. Avi Weisfogel earned his degree in dentistry, no one anticipated he would have such a major impact on the world of dentistry. However, his research and experimentation has helped expand the services dentists worldwide can offer.
