Dr. Avi Weisfogel, Sleep Apnea Treatment Pioneer

Medical scientists and practitioners have long known that sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, are not only uncomfortable and inconvenient, but that these maladies may also lead to other, more severe health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With this in mind, the medical community is taking great strides to simplify, and improve, the treatment of sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea.

Currently, the most-used treatments for sleep disorders are bulky, intrusive, and can be difficult to use on a nightly basis. Dr Avi Weisfogel, is among the practitioners working toward smaller, sleeker, and more user-friendly devices to effectively combat sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Unfortunately, the cumbersome nature of commonly used devices can inhibit patients from seeking treatment.

Implantable devices, on the other hand, are much smaller in size, and do not require the patient to use any masks or noisy machinery. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, has greatly contributed to the start of primary care physicians working with dentists to achieve better results for sleep apnea patients. Including dental health in the pursuit of better treatments for sleep disorders, is a fairly new concept, but one that has yielded important results.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has long been a pioneer in this field, and through his work as the Founder of Dental Sleep Masters in 2014, has brought dentists into the care and treatment of sleep disorder sufferers. Avi established his first practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in 1999. It was there, that he began to explore the possibilities of doctors and dentists working together to combat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

A graduate of Rutgers University, and New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Weisfogel is dedicated to improving his patients’ lives through advancements in the treatments for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. His dedication and commitment to helping others to overcome the suffering of sleep disorders, has been, and continues to be, his life’s work.

Keith Mann is a New York entrepreneur who has been CEO of Dynamic Search Partners for 15 years. He founded this executive search company in 2001, and it has been growing ever since. Keith Mann is an expert in the executive search industry. In 2009, he discovered that there was a need for staffing in the hedge fund and equity industries, so he used his hiring strategies to expand the company in these areas.

Dynamic Search Partners as a premier, executive search agency that is dedicated to finding the right match for leaders in the business world.

But, Keith Mann is not only an expert in his field and a thriving entrepreneur, he is also a philanthropist in New York City. He is dedicated to working with the younger generation, and he and his wife Keely have recently been involved in helping low-income students attending Uncommon Charter Schools to attend college.

Last year, Dynamic Search Partners and other members of the community raised $22,000, which Mann donated to the new school. The year before that donation, Mann contributed $10,000 in order for every student to receive the required AP and PSAT testing to start the year.

This year, Keith and Keely started a scholarship fund for seniors who were graduating. These students might not otherwise be able to attend college, so the fund is greatly appreciated. The Mann’s mission is to support high school graduates to become equipped, so they can return to their communities and be an asset to the business world.

Uncommon Schools began in Brooklyn and is expanding. Now, Uncommon Schools is in New Jersey and Massachusettes as well as New York, and they have the same mission as the Mann’s. This is what makes this connection so exceptional between the Man’s and Uncommon Schools.
