The contribution made by Dr. Avi Weisfogel in the dentistry industry over the past two decades has made him among the most powerful figures in the industry. After studying biology at Rutgers University and later training as a dentist at NYC University College of Dentistry, he proceeded to focus his practice on sleep disorders. He instituted, managed, and owned several firms, including Dental Sleep Masters Seminar (DSM), Old Bridge Dental Care, Healthy Heart Sleep, and Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient. Through these companies, he has trained many dentists on ways of handling sleep disorders. Towards the end of last year, Dr. Avi sat down for an interview with Ideamensch where he shared his history in the dental practice as well as his personal life.
What We Learn About Avi from the Interview
Avi Weisfogel unveiled DSM guided by the passion for finding solutions to sleep disorders. His idea materialized mainly because of his commitment, his experience in the dental industry, and his marketing expertise. After the company started operations in New Jersey in 2014, Avi became the pioneer in the under-explored field of sleep disorder.
The interesting thing about how the former dentist actualizes his ideas is that he has first to write it down, and then ponder about it. He believes that in order to visualize an idea, it ought to be in writing first. When it comes to rolling out an idea, he never shies away from positive criticism. This has not only helped him succeed with DSM but also with all his other companies.
Despite the great success and contribution he has made in the dentistry industry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel told Ideamensch that he didn’t enjoy the 15 years he served as a dentist. He said that he felt like being a dentist was the worst job he ever had for he had no passion for it. He, however, acknowledged that were it not for the experience he acquired in the industry, he wouldn’t have achieved much to this end.
In the way of contributing to philanthropy, Dr. Avi started supporting Operation Smile last year through a campaign dubbed GoFundMe. The initiative’s aim is to mobilize funds to the tune of $2,000 to support children in need of surgical operations in New Jersey.
