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.
