Why Avi Weisfogel Believes in Operation Smile

I recently came across information about the philanthropic efforts of Avi Weisfogel. I was interested in learning more about how a dentist became interested in treating sleep apnea, but in the process I learned more about his desire to help support the effort of a charity known as Operation Smile.

It was no surprise that a dentist was involved in such a charity because the sole mission of this charitable group is to help children with cleft lip and cleft palate. The man responsible for starting the charity is a plastic surgeon by the name of William Magee. Magee and his wife, a nurse, have been furthering this endeavor since 1982. Avi Weisfogel decided to start a GoFundMe campaign to help this charity get the donations that they need in order to continue helping children get the smiles they need and deserve.

Avi Weisfogel is a dentist that started his career in New Jersey, having received the title of “Best Dentist” numerous times. Over the course of his career, Weisfogel has taken an interest in treating patients with sleep apnea. He has developed oral devices to help with sleep problems, and he continues to hold seminars to teach other dentists how to help their patients as well. Avi Weisfogel clinic known as Heart Healthy Sleep is getting attention from more and more dentists that are looking for ways to help more patients.

The charity that Weisfogel endorses is now helping children in more than eighty countries, and each year they do nearly a quarter million free surgeries to help the children in need of this surgery.
