Dr. Avi Weisfogel started his dental practice in 1999 and practiced dentistry for the next 15 years, winning several community awards for the town’s best dental practice. His patients love him, and he got a great deal of personal satisfaction out of his experience.
Frequently, more and more of his patients began to relate to him the difficulties that they were having with a condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where the throat and tongue relax so much during sleeping at night that the breathing airway gets shut off. This wakes the person a little, and they begin breathing again. This scenario can occur off and on during the entire night.
When Dr. Avi Weisfogel began to inquire about the treatment his patients were receiving, they had a million different answers, with none of them offering much relief. So, he began to do his research, and he began to come up with some solutions. He asked some of his patients to try his techniques along with some of the devices he had put together.
The results were amazing because his techniques began to work, and work well. The devices held the patient’s jaw in place so the tongue wouldn’t slip back and block the airways. He found that he could create a device that was fitted to the person, and that worked well.
In 2012 formed Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient and he began to reach out to dentists explaining to them what he was doing and how they could also help their patients with this problem. In 2014 Dental Sleep Masters was established to help further dentists get involve in the patient helping endeavor.
Today he is a very sought after individual and his work days are full, indeed. He has hired a life coach just to be his “second brain” and help to guide him through the day.
He has had to become very organized, and as he says, “I have to organize everything, yes, everything.”
While this is true, he tries to focus his time on the most important things. The innovators that he is most impressed with is the late Steve Jobs. He has truly found his niche, and he will tell you that he is having the time of his life.
