One dentist is out to ensure that everybody has a chance to smile.

Avi Weisfogel, a passionate dentist, has started a GoFundMe page to benefit Operation Smile,an organization set out to provide all children all over the world with access to safe surgery. Operation Smile is a group of medical volunteers traveling all over the world in attempts to aid children suffering from cleft palate and cleft lip. These birth defects in the mouth can impair a child’s ability to speak, eat, drink and most importantly, smile.

Weisfogel is no stranger when it comes to matters of the mouth. As a graduate of New York University’s College of Dentistry, the dentist has done much to bring his talents back to his hometown of Old Bridge, NJ. Upon graduation, he went to serve at Old Bridge Dental Care, where he won the title of “Best Dentist” numerous times.

He then went on to own Dental Sleep Masters Seminars. With the help of his psychology and biology degrees from Rutgers University, Avi Weisfogel teaches clients to treat sleep disorders and specializes in sleep apnea. Five years ago, he started the “Healthy Heart Sleep” to create a network to help other doctors like him be able to best treat patients with sleeping problems.

Three years ago, he began lecturing on sleep apnea and the complications following it. He then created Dental Sleep Masters two years later to explain to other dentists how to use oral devices to help with sleep problems, and how sleeping problems can indeed affect oral health.

Founded in 1982, Operation Smile was founded when plastic surgeon, Dr. William P. Magee and his wife Kathleen (who’s a nurse and a social worker) traveled to the Philippines with other medical volunteers to repair children with cleft lips and cleft palates. Upon arrival, they found nearly 300 families with children in need of surgery, but were only able to treat 40 children. After those 40, the Magees promised they would be back.

The project is now an international network of thousands of medical volunteers from over 80 countries banning together to help support the lives of children in over 60 countries.
