Growing A Dental Practice Through Oral Appliance Therapy For Sleep Apnea

Dental Sleep Masters founder Dr. Avi Weisfogel wants people who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea to know that advances in treatment have eliminated the need for masks and noisy machines for many patients. Unfortunately, up to 90 percent of people who have sleep apnea do not know that their excessive daytime sleepiness is caused by not remaining in a deep sleep during the night, especially if they sleep alone and there is no one to tell them that they are snoring loudly or making choking noises during the night. Untreated sleep apnea leads to an increased risk of a stroke, heart attack or high blood pressure.

 

Avi Weisfogel DDS created Dental Sleep Masters to train physicians and dentists to work together to provide better patient care, while increasing the number of patients that visit their practice. For 15 years, Weisfogel operated Old Bridge Dental Care in Old Bridge, New Jersey, however, he left to found Unlimited Sleep Patient and then Dental Sleep Masters.

 

With his extensive experience treating sleep patients at his own practice and his marketing skills, Weisfogel decided to develop a proven business model for dentists that would bring in new oral appliance patients each month, enough so that the dentist could specialize in dental sleep medicine. Dentists learn how to screen patients and send them to a certified sleep physician for a diagnosis. Next, the Dental Sleep Masters program provides basic and advanced sleep medicine courses in oral appliance therapy. Finally, dentists learn how to successfully integrate sleep medicine into their practice. Site visits and coaching ensure that participants achieve clinical excellence while significantly growing their practice.
