Dr. Avi Weisfogel: A Pioneer In Dental-Related Sleep Disorders

According to an online article on PRNewswire.com, medical professionals have a clearer picture of the negative effects that sleep apnea has on the human body. The article mentions research that shows correlation between sleep apnea and many serious health disorders, such as heart disease and stroke. Experts are looking for better treatments for sleep apnea, says the article. Dr. Avi Weisfolgel, founder of Dental Sleep Masters, has done a lot of work in the problem of sleep disorders.

 

The article notes that of all the people who suffer from sleep apnea, 90% are undiagnosed. Dr. Weisfogel founded Dental Sleep Masters to help diagnose and treat people with the disorder. Since it can cause serious health problems, Dr. Weisfogel and his team want to raise public awareness of sleep apnea, the article says.

 

Dental Sleep Masters works with family doctors as well as sleep specialists and sleep labs. It results in better patient care and opportunities in the medical sector. Dentists like D. Weisfogel join other doctors to help patients who suffer from sleep apnea, says the article. As more studies and experiments are done, better treatments will evolve. More dentists may be involved in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea, the article explains.

 

There are new devices that are constantly being developed for sleep apnea. One that the article mentions is called THN Sleep Therapy, which was recently approved by the FDA for clinical trials. Patients are finding better alternatives to uncomfortable masks and noisy CPAP machines. Another therapy that has shown promise is upper airway stimulation. It was approved in 2014 by the FDA, says the article.

 

Physicians and dentists working together is an effective tool for patient care. This model, created by Dr. Weisfogel, is important for finding more solutions to sleep apnea, says the article. As more people are being diagnosed with the disorder, doctors and dentists will find that they have more business in their offices. They will be increasing business and help to the public, the article says.

 

Dr. Avi Weisfogel graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in biology and psychology. He earned his dental degree from New York University College. His first dental practice was opened in 1999, Old Bridge Dental Care. He received many awards and accolades during his 15 years in the practice.

 

While he was doing dental work, Dr. Weisfogel was studying the relationship between dental health and sleep apnea. He started several companies that specialized in dental related sleep disorders. He founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 to do further research on how dentists and physicians can work together on sleep apnea diagnosis and treatments.

The Life Story of Dr. Jennifer Walden

Jennifer Walden is a woman who notably has it all. She was placed by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine among the 24 best beauty surgeons last month. Walden underwent training with the finest cosmetic surgeons in New York City. She then went ahead to establish a successful practice in Manhattan. This was before returning to Austin to start a practice.
Walden is kind and warm towards those who interact with her. This puts the people she interacts with at ease. Despite being a busy and powerful woman, Dr. Walden’s eyes shine with the motherly love that she bears towards her twin sons, Rex, and Houston. She has an easy smile and empathizes with her patients who are in pursuit of better looks.

Hard work, coupled with talent, drive, and intelligence, brought Dr. Walden to where she is today. Jennifer was born in Austin. She spent her childhood in the Northwest Hills neighborhood. She was born into a family of medical professionals, with her late father being a dentist and her mother a surgical nurse.
Walden grew up in a community that treasured education and achievement. She describes her mother as a hero who has served as a great inspiration and role model in raising her children. She expresses the joys and hardships of being a mother. She points out that being a plastic surgeon is sometimes easier than being a mother.
Jennifer received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas. She was accepted into medical school on a waiting list after refusing to be sidelined. With her determination, Jennifer went ahead to graduate as Salutatorian of her class. She was led into plastic surgery by her love of artistry and creativity. She went on to start and run a successful practice in Manhattan.
After the birth of her twin sons, Jennifer Walden decided to return to Texas. This was to allow her sons to grow up surrounded by family, just like she grew up. She reestablished her practice in Austin and the practice has exceeded all expectations with its rapid growth.
