Local Dentist Reaches Out to Support Charity

Founder and owner of Dental Sleep Masters, Avi Weisfogel, DDS, is well established in his field. He specializes in obstructive sleep apnea and treatments through dentistry, focusing specifically on the risk factors and treatments associated with the diagnosis. Avi is also a seminar instructor and works with other dentists and physicians to help patients who suffer from sleep disorders.

In his role, Avi also helps other oral care professionals improve the efficiency of their business model. He has a genuine interest in marketing and business for dentistry and uses that knowledge and experience to help other dental office practices.

As part of his efforts in reaching out, Avi has launched a GoFundMe campaign solely for the benefit of Operation Smile, an organization that offers free surgical procedures for children suffering from cleft lip or cleft palates.

Avi is clearly passionate about helping others through his work in dentistry. Partnering with such a well-established organization that works with local medical professionals as well as conducting medical mission work around the world, speaks volumes to his character.

Founded in 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee, Operation Smile’s initial focus was to help children in the Philippines. They solicited donations, not only financial but of surgical and medical supplies and equipment. They amassed a group of volunteers ranging from doctors, nurses, and technicians and began their work.

As word spread so did their organization. Now they operate with thousands of volunteers from over 80 nations and has provided over 220,000 surgical procedures at no cost to them.
