Avi Weisfogel grew up in New Jersey where he started out as a dentist at Old Bridge Dental Care. He won the title of Best Dentist several times. Avi earned his Bachelor's degree at Rutger's University in Psychology and Biology. He then earned his Dentist degree from New York University College of Dentistry. For the past sixteen years, Avi Weisfogel has specialized in sleep apnea. He owns Dental Sleep Masters Seminars in New Jersey where he teaches people how to treat their sleep problems.
Avi wanted himself and other doctors to learn more about how to help people with sleep problems. Five years ago, Avi decided to start the "Healthy Heart Sleep" to accomplish this. Avi also wanted to speak to other dentists about sleep apnea so he started Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients. Avi later added Dental Sleep Masters to teach other dentists how to utilize several oral devices to help with sleep disorders.
In 1982, Dr. William Magee who was a plastic surgeon, and his wife Kathleen who was a nurse, started Operation Smile in the Phillippines. Operation Smile is a charity that they started to help children born with facial deformities. The overwhelming amount of children in need was more than they could handle and that is how Operation Smile was started. They were able to get support from different companies for the surgeries. They were also able to get a volunteer staff of doctors and nurses that would help on their return trips to the Phillippines. Avi Weisfogel was so touched by this organization that he decided to start a GoFund Me page for the charity.
Today there are thousands of professional staff that are helping children in over sixty countries get the free surgery they need for their facial deformities, all because of this wonderful program. The medical staff in these areas have also been trained to handle these surgeries and have also been provided with the equipment and supplies needed.
