The many hats on Dr. Weisfogel’s rack

Dr. Weisfogel has many rungs of accomplishment on which to hang his many hats. He’s a world-renowned medical innovator, founding and building Dental Sleep Masters from the ground up. He’s widely recognized as the father of sleep dentistry, a new discipline which has dramatically increased the diagnosis of and improved outcomes for sleep apnea, the insidious killer responsible for tens of thousands of premature deaths every year. He also became one of Central New Jersey’s preeminent dentists, throughout the mid-2000s, through his main dental practice, Old Bridge Dentistry.

However Dr. Weisfogel’s polymathic proclivities don’t end at the dentist’s chair. Few people would recognize him as one of the East Coast rap scene’s up and coming stars. But, as  detailed in this article, Dr. Weisfogel is a lyrical force to be reckoned with.

Growing up hard on the bleak streets of Newark

Dr. Weisfogel’s life wasn’t always so charmed. After moving in with his grandmother in Newark, NJ, he attended an inner-city school where, unlike the other schools he had attended, he was now the minority. Weisfogel quickly learned that the hard laws of the streets dictate that the only way one gains respect is by earning it. And without respect, you’re nothing. Weisfogel heard the album “The Chronic”, by Dr. Dre, and was mesmerized by the funky use of sampling and hard-driving beats. He began experimenting with different musical styles on the keyboard and began freestyle rapping around the house.

Eventually, some members of a rival set challenged him to a freestyle rap battle. He unleashed a vocal firestorm against the opposing rappers, vanquishing them and finally earning the unwavering respect from his fellow classmates. Later, one of his good friends was killed in a robbery gone wrong. Weisfogel knew then that he had to leave the hip-hop lifestyle. He had too much talent to waste on the vacuities of street life. He put his musical dreams on hold to attend the New York University School of Dentistry.

Now, 20 years later, Weisfogel has picked up the mic that he once dropped for a better life. If his other pursuits are any guide, Dr. Weisfogel is one of the rappers to watch in the coming years.
