Avi Weisfogal started his career as a dentist and now builds his career around the science of sleep. Avi Weisfogel is also a philanthropist and has started a GoFundMe campaign for Operation Smile. Operation Smile was founded in the early 1980’s by a married couple named William and Kathleen Magee. William was a plastic surgeon and Kathleen was a nurse. When they travelled to the Phillipines, they were overwhelmed at the number of children there who had various facial deformities such as the hare lip on the cleft palate. And so from there, they quickly got to work on the funding and rounding up volunteer staff.

Today, over thirty years later, Operation Smile has thousands of professional staff from over 80 countries to assist such children in over 60 countries. They also ensure that their new staff are trained to handle the surgeries and millions have donated equipment and supplies. Thanks to all of the factors above, close to a million surgeries have been performed successfully.

Avi Weisfogal earned his Bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology from Rutgers University. He then went on to earn his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) at New York University’s School of Dentistry. He started his career in the Old Bridge Dental Office in New Jersey. From there, he went on to become the owner of Dentist’s Sleep Master’s Seminar, at which he educates the public about how to treat various sleep issues, especially sleep apnea.

Then in 2010, Avi Weisfogal founded Healthy Heart Sleep in order to educate doctors on assisting patients with sleep issues. He also founded Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients to educate other dentists in assisting patients with various sleep issues. In around 2012, he added the Dental Sleep Masters branch in order to educate dentists on how to assist patients in using various oral devices to help alleviate such issues.
