How one New Jersey dentist changed the practice forever

Shortly after graduating from the New York School of Dentistry, AviWeisfogel founded his first practice. Old Bridge Dental quickly rose to prominence among its Central New Jersey clientele. With a puritan work ethic, Dr. Weisfogel built the practice into a thriving beacon of dental excellence for the whole state. But this project was just one of many for the industrious odontology prodigy. In his spare time, he was pursuing a variety of studies, one of which would come to occupy an increasingly dominant space in his head.

It was thusly that Dr. Weisfogel began down the path to epiphany. Why, he wondered, are dentists so narrowly constrained in their practice? If dentists were more versatile diagnosticians, he reasoned, could they make a sizable impact on disease processes unrelated to dentistry?

Dr. Weisfogel knew that, for a large subset of patients, dentists were the only health care medical professionals who they were likely to see over the course of years to decades. This is because of the nature of dental ailments. If someone wishes, postponing a routine physical or a colonoscopy is easy enough to do. In fact, most of the time, it can be postponed indefinitely, without apparent consequence.

However, any patient who attempts to postpone seeing a dentist for an abscessed third molar will quickly get a participatory lesson in the limits of human pain tolerance. Likewise, even chipped front teeth can ruin the week – and smile – of just about anyone, outside of professional combat sportsmen. For this reason, Dr. Wiesfogel concluded that dentists could make a huge difference in the cure rates for deadly diseases that are often times hopeless in the late stages but highly treatable in the earliest ones.

After considerable research, Dr. Weisfogel learned sleep apnea is one of the most underdiagnosed and socially costly diseases in the United States. He set about to improve the diagnosis and clinical course for this insidious killer.

In 2011, Dr. Weisfogel founded Dental Sleep Masters, a clinical program dedicated to teaching dentists how to accurately diagnose and treat sleep apnea. Over the last few years, the program has been a runaway success, graduating thousands of dentists and creating the field of sleep dentistry.
