Dr. Avi Weisfogel has had a long career in dentistry, and is a leading expert in sleep research. Though he keeps a busy schedule serving patients, he is compelled to follow personal interests that include charity work and supporting the arts.
One of Weisfogel’s favorite and most recognizable charity efforts is a huge GoFundMe campaign for Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization started by Dr. William Magee in 1982. It helps match surgeons and dentists with needy patients worldwide. Serving mostly young children and teens with deformities like cleft palates and other facial problems, the organization has brought medical and dental professionals from eighty countries to children in over sixty countries. With the help of philanthropists like Dr. Avi Weisfogel, Operation Smile has performed a quarter of a million needed free procedures.
Weisfogel is also an avid contributor to popular social media platforms. His Tumblr blog is dedicated to informing the general public about advances in his field. This includes his tireless work in the realm of sleep studies aimed at treating conditions like sleep apnea. Avi manages a network of dentists and scientists from headquarters in South Orange, NJ. Dental Sleep Masters provides patients with oral applicators that help them achieve better health, and is a trophy business model for other professionals who are looking for ways to begin philanthropic efforts connected to their chosen expertise.
The world of music is another way Dr. Weisfogel connects with people. He is an amateur composer and collector of funny, artsy, and fascinating videos.
