The Philanthropic Side of Avi Weisfogel


Avi Weisfogel, a well established dentist from the New Jersey area, has recently launched a GoFundMe Campaign in an effort to raise money for Operation Smile. GoFundMe campaigns are set up by individuals or groups in an attempt to raise money for a particular cause or service. Donations can be made by any individual willing to give of their resources. The non for profit that Weisfogel is raising money for, Operation Smile, works to offer treatment to children around the world that are born with cleft palate and other mouth deformities. The areas that Operation Smile volunteers work areas where there is not a good source of healthcare such as Southeast Asia, Africa and some parts of South America. Operation Smile was started by Dr. William Magee and his wife who decided to begin doing operations in the Philippines to address some of the birth effects like cleft palate. Soon, the demand outgrew their efforts and Operation Smile was established. Now they have hundreds of volunteers that work around the world.

Avi Weisfogel began is studies in Biology and Psychology at Rutger’s University. Soon after that, he continued on to University College of Dentistry in New York where he completed his Dentist degree. Weisfogel quickly began his dentistry work at Old Bridge Dental Care in New Jersey. He established a name for himself in that area and even won an award for the Best Dentist many years. Soon, Weisfogel’s interest turned in another direction: sleep apnea.

Starting out on his own, Avi Weisfogel founded and operated Dental Sleep Masters Seminars which was based out of New Jersey. He dedicated himself to teaching people how to treat their sleeping disorders with a specialization in sleep apnea. The business grew successfully and he has been in this field for over 16 years. Over the years, Weisfogel has spread his knowledge and interest in sleep apnea to fellow dentists. He started Healthy Heart Sleep as well as Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients in an effort to educate fellow doctors and dentists on the causes and cures of sleep apnea. Weisfogel continues work in this area and currently resides in New Jersey.
