For many years, sleep apnea has been overshadowed and little research has been conducted regarding the condition. In general, people have not considered it to be a serious illness until Dr Avi raised the issue. His interest for understanding sleep apnea began way back when he was in college studying dentistry. He always wanted to help his patients understand the dangers of the disease and how they can overcome and treat it.
Dr Avi spent most of his time studying the condition and when he had gathered adequate information about it he decided to launch Dentist Sleep Masters. Together with his team they come up with models that help patients deal with the condition. He also encourages physicians to talk to their patients and probe them about their sleeping patterns. This way, they can detect any patterns of the condition so that they can treat it as soon as possible.
Dr Avi is not only a researcher and a dentist but is also an excellent marketer. For years, he has worked alongside various leaders and people through which he was able to establish interpersonal and communication skills. He tells the Idea mensch that he draws his ideas and inspiration through observing and interacting with people. After which, he writes his ideas down and later reviews them. Coming up with models and having the ability to sell them to physicians and medics is highly attributed to his excellent people skills.
Outside work, Dr. Avi Weisfogel works with charity organizations. He supports the Operation Smile, which was began to support children in countries that require financial help. In order to do so, he began the Fund Me Campaign that hopes to raise thousands to bring medical supplies to children who need medical care. The money will also be used to conduct surgeries for children and to make sure that they get excellent medical coverage.
