When it comes to sleep apnea, it is not something that Dr. Avi Weisfogel takes lying down or takes lightly. As a matter of fact, with any sort of condition, he is going to do whatever is possible to make sure his patients are comfortable and feel good. When he ran Operation Smile, that is how he operated. He knew that many people were suffering from issues with their teeth and were unhappy with their appearance from children to young adults. He set up a page to raise funds in order to get the ball rolling with that. He is not the kind of doctor that does his work at the office and just disappears when the job is done.
For Avi Weisfogel, the job is never done. He is always working as hard as possible and working overtime to fix any discomfort a patient has. When it comes to discomfort, pain, or anything involving sleep, it affects everything about a person’s life. If they are unable to sleep well or have sleeping issues, it can lead to more serious health issues. That is why Avi Weisfogel is so dedicated and committed to this. He does not want it to lead to that. He would rather nip it in the bud now as opposed to later. He knows by doing this, his patients can lead a happy and comfortable life.
He has taken it upon himself to start up Dental Sleep Masters and it is exactly what it sounds like. It is masters in the field of dentistry working around the clock to get the best results possible with state-of-the-art sleeping labs. It takes more than one person to fix this sort of issue. His hope is that this will help as many of those that suffer from this condition as possible. 90 percent of those who suffer, in fact, don’t even know they have it. It is more than just snoring and sleepless nights.
Avi is wise to reach out to other dentists and make it a team effort. He is working his tail off, but he needs others to join him in this fight.
