Avi Weisfogel Launching GoFundMe Campaign For Operation Smile

May 25th, 2016

In a recent article on, Avi Weisfogel announced that he will be launching a GoFundMe campaign that will be benefitting the charity organization Operation Smile. Avi Wesifogel has been a successful dentist for several years and has supported Operation Smile through various donations in the past. This GoFundMe campaign has been set to a goal of $2000.

Operation Smile was originally established by Kathy and Bill Magee in 1982 when they launched a mission to the Phillipines in order to help young children who were suffering from various facial deformities. Since then the charity organization has grown into a global giant, with more than 220 000 free surgical procedures under its belt. The volunteer network alone spreads over 80 nations globally and includes medical professionals, hospitals, governments and various other organizations.

What Operation Smile does is put together medical care models where they supply either the doctors or the equipment to perform these surgical procedures. In some instances they will provide both resources. This way children and young adults can get access to life changing surgeries which would otherwise not be possible to perform. Also purely from a financial perspective these type of surgeries can be very costly.

Those children suffering from cleft palate or cleft lip can finally get the procedure necessary to provide them with a new start and a brighter future. In order for Operation Smile to also build long term sufficiency within these nations they will conduct the necessary training for local professionals. All the services that Operation Smile provide are conducted alongside local professionals in order to do the procedure in the local language and culture that the local population are accustomed to.

Avi Weisfogel started out with a Bachelors in Biology and Psychology and later on moved to Dentistry at the New York Dentistry College. He has been running his own practice for more than 15 years and has achieved several accolades including Best Dentist.

His passion goes further than Dentistry and has found an interest in sleep related disorders. He has sought out ways in which the dentists and physician can help those patients suffering from sleep related disorders. In 2010 he founded Healthy Heart Sleep an organization that advises doctors around the world on how to successfully conduct sleep labs. He has managed to provide greater insight into the many disorders.
