Avi Weisfogel Begins Campaign For Operation Smile

Dr. Avi Weisfogel, who has been a dentist and researcher for over 15 years, has started a GoFundMe campaign, the proceeds of which will go to benefit the non-profit organization “Operation Smile.”

Dr. Weisfogel’s GoFundMe campaign is hoping to raise funds for Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that provides safe surgical care in third-world nations for children and adults that have been born with cleft lip. Cleft lip can not only make sufferers self-conscious, but it can also contribute to malnourishment and difficulties with speech. Operation Smile gives confidence and health back to people whom otherwise could not afford to pay for surgery nor would typically have access to safe, sterile medical care. Operation Smile services poverty-stricken and warn-torn countries such as Rwanda, South Africa, Honduras, and Vietnam.

Dr. Weisfogel himself has been running his own dental practice since 1999, after receiving degrees from both Rutgers University and the New York University College of Dentistry. Dr. Weisfogel has also taken a very proactive role in educating his community on health, including his seminars on how sleep disorders can potentially be linked to a patient’s dental health.

Dr. Weisfogel has been particularly proficient in the treatment of sleep apnea, also educating other dentists on how to identify potential patients, providing them the proper treatment, as well as securing the necessary treatment for patients. The latter work, which Dr. Weisfogel has been involved with since 2010, is a passion of his that is reflected in his new GoFundMe campaign in order to benefit Operation Smile.
