Sleep deprivation is a complicated issue. Experts have done extensive research to understand the problem. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has broken new ground as a sleep apnea specialist. Sleep apnea sufferers usually don’t realize the extent of their condition. The problem is very wide-ranging. Dr. Weisfogel is a dentist who created a new approach to this complicated matter.
Patients obviously won’t think to look to a dentist to help them with sleep apnea issues. It is not reasonable to expect dentistry is where the problem could be solved. The common thing to do is to see a sleep apnea specialist. Dr. Weisfogel changed this logic.
Avi Weisfogel was able to make these achievements because he had an open mind about what he could do with his dentistry skills. He understood that his education would enable him help many people with more than just their teeth. Over time treating sleep apnea became Dr. Weisfogel’s number one priority. The inspiration came after meeting a patient who was suffering from this debilitating ailment.
Dr. Weisfogel demonstrated a diligent work ethic as he earned his credentials to be a practicing dentist. He received a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University. Weisfogel then went on to New York University to obtain his doctorate in dental surgery. He soon opened a practice and called it Old Bridge Dental Care. Old Bridge Dental Care established itself as a leader in dentistry right away.
Studying sleep disorder presented many challenges for Dr. Weisfogel. He discovered that there were many other specialist who were not performing the proper sleep test for certain patients. Inconsistencies arose as he continued to evaluate how sleep apnea was being treated by other Physicians. Avi Weisfogel decided that he needed to reach out to others in the medical community to help solve this problem. There needed to be a worldwide standard that everyone could look to for training and guidance.
Weisfogel eventually developed Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients in 2012. He immediately saw that this was the necessary format for gaining the traction he needed to make an impact on this serious issue. Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients provided a solid basis for all experts interested to share their ideas and improve the treatment process. The forum also attracted stakeholders who were interested in the possibilities what this Think Tank could produce.
