Getting your full eight to nine hours of sleep is not only something that your mother may have enforced on you as a small child, but also has real scientific benefits. Getting the recommended amount of sleep can help improve your skin, reduce hair loss, reduce stress and a variety of other wonderful benefits to your body and mind. Some adults attempt to get their full night’s sleep but are hindered by medical conditions like sleep apnea. Dr. Avi Weisfogel and his team hope to shed some light on this sleep thief.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a not a sleep doctor, but rather an accomplished dentist. He works with patients who have sleep apnea and has been designing oral devices that help sleep apnea sufferers get a better night’s sleep. He is hoping that with collaboration between the world of dentistry and sleep medicine, people suffering from sleep apnea and similar disorders can find the peace and much needed rest that they deserve.
Dr. Weisfogel holds a degree in psychology and biology from Rutger’s University in New Jersey. His DDS is from the College of Dentistry at New York University. His passion in dentistry and working with different professional groups have helped him gain a different perspective on dentistry and help him reach a wider audience for his sleep apnea work. His creation of the Dental Sleep Master’s Program will help countless professionals in dentistry, healthcare, and a variety of other professions reach people who could benefit from oral devices to help aid their symptoms of sleep apnea. His current focus is on the Dental Sleep Masters Program and teaching professionals around the world about the benefits of these oral devices.
