Dr. Avi Weisfogel launches a GoFundMe campaign for the charity organization Operation Smile

As a practicing dentist from Old Bridge, New Jersey, Avi Weisfogel has always had a passion for oral health education. Son of a cardiologist, he has lived in New Jersey his whole life with his wife and six children.

While New Jersey dentists are required to take 40 hours of continuing education every other year, Avi Weisfogel has made a point of always being at the cutting edge of dental treatments and procedures.

“If there’s a better way to do a root canal, I’m gonna learn how to do it. If there’s a better way to place implants I’m gonna learn how to do it,” Dr. Weisfogel said.

Avi Weisfogel’s experience as a father has also leant a deep concern of the well-being of children. As he sees it, it’s our responsibility to see that all children receive proper care as if they were our own. Young people need to have hope that their condition will improve.

This is what makes the GoFundMe campaign for Operation Smile so important.
Operation Smile focuses on raising awareness and providing care for children suffering with cleft lip and palate deformities. Founded by Bill and Kathy McGee in 1982 after a cleft repair mission in the Philippines, they realized a deep international need for their expertise.

Affecting 1 in 700 babies annually, causes for cleft lip and cleft palate are largely unknown. This is why Operation Smile works so hard to establish chapters and foundations worldwide. They strive to make every country self-sufficient in the field of cleft surgeries, providing care for families and administering educational programs. As of now, they have provided over 200,000 free surgeries and over 3.5 million patient evaluations.

Now with Avi Weisfogel’s support through GoFundMe, the organization will be one step closer to achieving their goals. Check out Avi’s educational YouTube video below!
