Avi Weisfogel Owns A New Medical Foundation

Getting a healthy night’s sleep is probably something you heard about all the way through elementary school health classes, but for some people it’s easier said than done. That’s why Dr. Avi Weisfogel has taken to using his dental knowledge and other medical expertise to helping others through Dental Sleep Masters. DSM provides information on sleep science to dentists and doctors through seminars and white paper and tells them how they can use oral appliances and other methods to treat their patients. Weisfogel has put many new ideas together to make this happen, and Ideamensch wanted to know more about them.


Weisfogel told Ideamensch that his interest in DSM came from seeing a new field and wanting to put his marketing and medical backgrounds together and enter something new. He said he needed to do something else besides dentistry because he just wasn’t “passionate about it,” so he began researching new things in sleep science and figuring out how he could make them work. Weisfogel has ways that he likes to spend his workdays, beginning with moments of prayer early on, talking with his life coach and then going into the days tasks that include hosting seminars, taking calls and scheduling appointments. One of his more unusual ideas is to have a dental mirror designed that has a windshield wiper on it and an app that could organize thoughts into notes.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is from a Newark, NJ suburb and has a family background in medicine with his father having practiced cardiology. His educational background has bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology from Rutgers University, and he attended dental school at NYU and got his DDS. After obtaining his official dentist license in New Jersey, he opened up a small clinic in Edison, NJ before moving it to Old Bridge where it became Old Bridge Dental Care. Old Bridge Dental Care was highly reviewed over the years and Weisfogel honored with the “Best Dentist” recognition. Weisfogel turned his passion to sleep medicine around 2005 and founded Healthy Heart Sleep in 2010 followed by Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012 and then DSM in 2014.
