Now Entering Russ's World
Sleep apnea has become a serious health condition over the past decade. This sleep disorder is many times linked to other medical disorders such as cardiovascular, diabetes and stroke. Around 90% of people who suffer from sleep apnea are unaware that they have this disorder.
It is important to increase awareness of this disorder. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is the leader of a new cause to help bring diagnosis to those who may be suffering from this disorder. A company named Dental Sleep Masters revealed a new model that involves primary and secondary care doctors. This model allows for the best care for patients who are suffering from this disorder.
Sleep physicians and regular doctors team up with dentists and offer clinical support to those who are suffering. Dentists can play a huge role in diagnosing and treating sleep apnea.
There are many new devices entering the market to help improve the symptoms. THN sleep therapy is just one example of one of these new devices. THN sleep therapy is still in clinical trials but is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Likewise, treatments are becoming smaller and more user-friendly than ever before.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel founded a company called Dental Sleep Masters. He has a lot of experience treating sleep disorders. Before starting his company, he ran his own dental practice for 15 years. He received significant recognition from the community for his great work.
Dr. Weisfogel earned a BS from Rutgers in biology and psychology. He later went on to New York University College of Dentistry, where he earned his DDS.
