Avi Weisfogel is a certified surgeon from New Jersey. He also doubles as a philanthropist with a passion for making a different in people’s lives. Currently, he has a number of charitable organizations he heads or contributes to financially.
Avi graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Psychology and Biology. Later on, he joined the College of Dentistry, at New York University, where he completed his degree as a Dentist. He not only carried out a number of surgeries as a dentist, but he also educated his patients on common sleep disorders and how they are related with known dental issues.
Avi’s desire to educate more people grew, pushing him to finally form his first charity organization, Dental Sleep Masters. He teamed up with other dental surgeons, and physicians, to teach patients on how to treat their own sleep disorders, especially sleep apnea. Avi ran this organization for over 16years and has reached thousands of people globally.
His next charitable project, Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients, was formed targeting his fellow dentist. He used this channel to educate his colleagues on how to properly diagnose and treat sleep apnea in patients. This project inspired a third organization, Dental Sleep Masters, where he trains dentist on how to correct sleep disorders using common oral devices.
When he is not running his own organization, Avi is contributing to other not for profit establishments helping people globally. One of these organizations is Operation Smile which he opened a Go Fund Me campaign for. Operation Smile was formed to provide free surgery to children with cleft lips and other facial deformities.
Avi is always looking for more ways to help the masses, another of which is blogging about sleep apnea. He holds a personal blog and a Tumblr page where he frequently posts articles on proper Dental hygiene, as well as creating awareness on sleep conditions like apnea.
Avi Weisfogel’s dream to create a better world has inspired many to love and appreciate what he does. His name is well-known in New Jersey where he currently resides and vows never to leave. In his free time, he makes music with a special liking for the hip hop genre.
