Avi Weisfogel, a notable dentist with a practice in Old Bridge, New Jersey, has started a GoFundMe campaign for Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a non-profit operation that offers dental surgery in foreign countries were people don’t have access to safe surgery practices or can’t afford it. Patients are children who need surgery for cleft lip and palate. Medical professionals around the world are involved in Operation Smile by either donations of money or time. Operation Smile and its team of doctors works with hospitals in foreign countries to get the best care for patients when it comes to surgery and recovery care.
Dr. Weisfogel has always been a philanthropist donating and helping charities whenever he can. Operation Smile was a perfect fit for his GoFundMe campaign since his passion is dentistry and oral health. He attended Rutgers University and received a degree in psychology and biology. He received doctor of dental surgery from New York University College of Dentistry. Weisfogel worked at Old Bridge Dental Care before co-founding Dental Sleep Masters. The practice helps those who have sleep problems by using dental practices. Before opening the practice, Weisfogel was chief lecturer at Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients. He teaches other dentists how using oral appliance therapy can help sleep disorders.
Dental Sleep Masters also offers its business model to other physicians and hopes to instruct them on the practices Weisfogel uses to help his patients with sleep disorders. A huge Pink Floyd fan, Weisfogel writes a blog where he discusses sleep apnea and other sleep disorders as well as more personal things such as his favorite videos (see below), Pink Floyd and the Cleveland Browns.
