Avi Weisfogel – Operation Smile

Avi Weisfogel has been named Best Dentist many times in the New Jersey area. He has been practicing since 1999. He founded and owns his own practice called Old Bridge Dental Care. Throughout the years as a dentist, he has taken a keen interest in sleep apnea. After seeing many patients who had been diagnosed with the disorder and many that hadn’t been diagnosed yet, he formed Dental Sleep Masters. It’s a thorough company that has been well established in many dentists offices throughout the states. The program offers extensive information to the staff, as well as the dentists, showing them the educational benefits of oral appliances. Oral appliances are used on many patients who suffer from sleep apnea. They are used to correct the airway, keeping it open throughout the night. This helps many people get better sleep, wake up with more energy and experience less headaches.

 

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has currently set up a GoFundMe account for an organization that he feels very strongly about. Operation Smiles is an organization that was created in the early 80’s to help benefit children and young adolescents who are experiencing issues with their mouth or teeth. Operation Smile was created by a husband and wife who made it their goal to treat each patient as if they were their own. Their very first mission was stationed in the Philippines. Since then, they’ve been able to perform many surgeries at no cost to the patient. Dr. Weisfogel hopes to be able to raise enough money to help the cause so that more children can experience the life changing procedure. Operation Smile has helped those who have suffered from a cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. They’ve also been able to travel all over the world to help those in need. The foundation works with local medical facilities in the area to complete the procedures. They are pleased to be able to help those in need, and hope to raise enough money to continue to do so. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has donated some of his own money to get the campaign started.
