Dr. Avi Weisfogel has worked for more than 15 years building a successful career as a dental practitioner and sleep dentistry specialist. For the last year, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has maintained administrative oversight in his role as co-founder of Dental Sleep Masters (DSM) in South Orange, New Jersey.
Throughout the year, DSM offers a wide range of educational seminars to dental practitioners seeking to incorporate sleep medicine into their practices. On October 22 and 23, 2015, the firm hosted an Introduction to Sleep Medicine course at the Renaissance Allentown in Pennsylvania. The seminar aimed to provide basic knowledge of sleep medicine practices and help dental practitioners assume a role on their firm’s sleep medicine team.
Hosted by Drs. Weisfogel and Glassman of DSM, the course offered sections that covered several aspects of sleep medicine, including oral appliance therapy, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS), and sleep apnea. In addition, the seminar featured an entire portion devoted to the treatment of bruxism (teeth grinding) and occlusion. Those in attendance had the opportunity to earn 16 hours of continuing education credit through the Academy of General Dentistry.
