Avi Weisfogel

Founder, IAOS

Avi Weisfogel is a former dentist and currently the Owner of the International Academy of Sleep. In 1999, he founded Old Bridge Dental Care in Old Bridge, NJ, a dental office he operated for more than 15 years. While running this practice, Dr. Weisfogel began to learn more about sleep, sleep disorders and how to treat them. Eager to explore how he could make a difference in the world of sleep, he spent countless hours trying to implement sleep apnea treatment within his dental practice using traditionally-taught methods. But in using these methods typically taught at sleep courses, he failed to make it a meaningful part of his practice.

After over 10 years of trial and error, he acquired Healthy Heart Sleep, a DME company with no relationship to his dental practice. Through this company, he was able to work with doctors from across the US to help them establish diagnostic programs within their medical practices and direct the recommended treatment paths for each patient.

By 2013, he began to help other dentists by sharing this unique method with them so they could build similarly-designed businesses. As a result, The International Academy of Sleep was born in 2016. IAOS is an organization that helps dentists build businesses to successfully diagnose and treat sleep apnea. Over 180 dentists across the country have successfully deployed the IAOS model to create stand-alone sleep businesses to run alongside or in the place of their dental practice.
