Avi Wesifogel is a dentist, philanthropist, artist and musician. He has interests in many levels and has recently started a GoFundMe campaign in efforts to raise funds for a non-profit organization called Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a group that travels the world performing facial surgeries for young children and adolescents. The surgeries range anywhere from cleft palates, cleft lips and facial deformities. Operation Smile is a global organization that has been helping give children hope for the future for over thirty years. It was founded in 1984 by Bill and Kathy Magee. Their first mission was stationed in the Philippines and since then, they have thousands of volunteers and have performed many surgeries. Weisfogel chose Operation Smile because of what it stands for and how they’ve helped so many people. It has been a wonderful foundation and he has placed $2000.00 in the GoFundMe account to get the fundraiser started. They continue to provide exceptional services throughout the world by working with local medical offices in the area that they’re working in as well as government agencies. They treat the children as if they are their own, which is another reason that Dr. Weisfogel has become so passionate about helping this organization.
Avi Weisfogel has also spent much of his time creating an education program called Dental Sleep Masters. The program focuses on helping dentist’s offices and their staff becomes educated on the different types of sleep disorders. Many people suffer from sleep apnea but aren’t fully aware of the symptoms or the diagnosis. Dental Sleep Masters provides exceptional education for the offices to help them identify different symptoms as well as helps them understand what they should be looking for when someone present signs of sleep apnea. They are trained through the Dental Sleep Master’s program to help the patient with their knowledge and education. Dr. Weisfogel promotes an oral device that can also help correct the obstructive sleep apnea and help the patient get better sleep.
