Dentistry is not only working with people with teeth issues. Dentists also perform analysis on sleep issues and sleep apnea. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, Owner, and operator of Dental Sleep Masters is now undertaking a new project to help underprivileged individuals receive the dental care they need. Avi spent four years at NYU College Of Dentistry learning all about Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Periodontics, and Extractions. He also has a degree in biology. This degree helps him to understand how other body organs work in correlation with the teeth. If you meet him and talk with him you will quickly learn how positive he is towards his students and his patients.
Recently, Avi Weisfogel launched a go fund me to help underprivileged individuals to receive the dental care they need. People such as Avi are working hard to fight for children and homeless adults, providing them with the dental care they need at low or no cost through Operation Smile. Avi is hoping to raise over $2000 dollars to go towards helping children have a better chance at eating and smiling properly. The dental associates that work with him are also donating some time to ride on the Operation Smile bus.
Operation smile is nonprofit. It was established in 1982 by Mr. and Mrs. Magee. Not only do they help children in America but they also travel to other areas such as the Philippines to help children. It works with local dentists and other medical professionals to provide surgeries for things such as cleft palate. Children born with these deformities find it difficult to eat. Surgery repairs the hole in the lip and roof of the mouth so that the child will be able to eat and drink without issue. The surgery also helps because it repairs some of the issues that make the child self-conscious about their looks. Operation Smile provides free surgeries and procedures as well as training to thousands of individuals.
Avi Weisfogel works very hard to make people look and feel their best by providing dental procedures, training, and Operation Smile. Check out the recent article on ABC6 for more details about the GoFundMe Campaign. People can donate to the fund or volunteer their professional time to help these innocent and disadvantaged individuals.
