Dr. Weisfogel also discovered many different ways dentists and physicians can work together to produce better outcomes for their patients. This collaboration has led to improved sleep for countless patients worldwide.

To further this work, Dr. Weisfogel founded Healthy Heart Sleep in 2010. Through this organization, he worked closely with physicians worldwide offering them advice, support and effective techniques.
