Avi Weisfogel launches a GoFundMe Campaign benefiting Operation Smile.

Old Bridge, NJ, January 14, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Avi Weisfogel started out as a dentist with the dental office called Old Bridge Dental Care in New Jersey, where he grew up. He was very well known and won the title of Best Dentist numerous times over the years. He went to school at Rutgers University where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Biology then went on to get his Dentist degree-DDS-from New York University College of Dentistry. He went on to also own Dental Sleep Masters Seminars based out of New Jersey, where he teaches people how to treat their sleep problems and disorders, specializing in sleep apnea. He has worked in this area for over sixteen years, and has accumulated a lot of experience in this area.

Five years ago he started the “Healthy Heart Sleep” to help him and other doctors learn how to help people with sleeping problems. Three years ago he started Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients and began his journey on lecturing other dentists on sleep apnea and the problems that go along with it. He added Dental Sleep Masters two years later to show other dentists how to use numerous oral devices to help with sleep problems and how these sleep problems are tied to dental health. As you can see, Avi has had his hands full for a while now.

Avi Weisfogal is a huge philanthropist and has started a GoFund Me page for the wonderful charity-Operation Smile, he is so touched and inspired by this organization and what they are able to do. They started this work in 1982 by Dr. William Magee who did plastic surgery and his wife Kathleen, who was a nurse. They started this program in the Philippines with other medical professionals to help children born with deformities such as cleft palates and cleft lips in the facial area. They were overwhelmed by the need and the children who desperately needed their help, it was far more than they could handle and that is how they started Operation Smile. They worked on getting donations to use for surgeries from different companies, and whatever supplies they could get. They rounded up a volunteer staff of doctors, nurses, and any technicians that would help on their return trip to the Philippines.

Today that program is helping children all over the world with thousands of professional staff from over eighty different countries that help children in over sixty different countries. Almost a quarter of a million free surgeries have been done all over the world to help children and young teens with facial deformities, they have also worked with the medical staff in these areas to help train them to handle theses types of surgeries and have donated the equipment and supplies that they need.
