Dr. Avi Weisfogel founded Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 to help patients suffering from sleep disorders to get treatment. In 1999, Weisfogel started Old Bridge Dental Care, which was his first dental practice. After managing the facility for more than 15 years, Weisfogel earned accolades from the community as the best dentist for years. During the time, Weisfogel researched widely on the world of sleep and studied on how physicians and dentists would assist patients who suffered from its disorders. The Dental Sleep Masters equipped dentists with skills and helped patients with sleep disorders using oral appliances.

The model represents a bigger picture and outcomes in providing better care for patients and at the same time increasing chances within the medical community. Sleep physicians have joined hands with dentists to provide clinical support for patients with sleep apnea. The services offered to treat this disorder are anticipated to go up in the coming years as better technologies emerge. Dentists devote a large part of their practices in diagnosing and treating sleep apnea.
