Notable Dentist Avi Weisfogel starts GoFundMe for Operation Smile

Avi Weisfogel is a dentist from New Jersey who enjoys sharing his success with the world. As a man who has helped other dentists reach their potential, Avi is a generous person who has now found a non-profit organization to support as well. Avi has started a GoFundMe Campaign for Operation Smile to raise $2,000 for the noble charity organization. Operation smile helps children all over the world who require surgery but can’t afford it or do not have access to safe healthcare. The charity focuses mostly on children with cleft lip and pallet as well as other facial deformities.

Operation Smile was started in the 1980s by a husband and wife team who were also a doctor and nurse. On a mission trip to the Philippines, Kathleen and Bill Magee realized how large the need was for safe and affordable medical care especially for children with facial deformities. They returned after their first trip to start Operation Smile. The non-profit has grown to include thousands of volunteers and they are able to perform thousands of surgeries in several different countries every year.

Avi Weisfogel started his career as a dentist in his hometown of Old Bridge, New Jersey where he bought out a dying practice after graduating from New York University College of Dentistry. With much success, Avi had to eventually move to a larger practice, but his heart lay in helping patients with sleeping disorders such as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea patients can benefit greatly from using oral appliances to control the condition. However, getting patients was difficult at first and Avi dedicated many years planning and studying to open a sleep practice. He succeeded and opened Dental Sleep Masters which sees several sleep apnea patients now.

After seeing success with Dental Sleep Masters, Avi wanted to help other dentists open their own sleep practices. He started Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients to train other dentists in receiving and treating sleep patients as well as how to start a sleep lab within their practices. The training takes at least three days as well as continued support along the way.
