A person’s smile is their greeting card to the world. A first impression that can land a job or repel an opportunity before it has a chance to take root. Operation Smile is a worldwide movement that understands that how a person smile looks and makes a person feel about themselves that it is vital to their overall success as a person. That is why they believe that every child deserves high quality surgical care to repair significant dental and facial deformities. Avi Weisfogel is one of the main supporters of the organization and has started a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money and awareness for this great cause.
Operation Smile is an international charity providing these surgical procedures to children and young adults who suffer from cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. What they really supply is hope that a problem can be fixed and that the future can be better than today. The goal of the funding campaign is to raise at least $2000 to add to the projects funding. Every year they set out on medical missions across the world to assist people and provide free medical care. The doctors involved volunteer their skill and time to the project but there are costs in travel and equipment that needs to be provided to safely perform these types of surgical processes. They also make sure to work with and train local doctors and medical personnel so that all cultural considerations are maintained and there are languages that need to be translated as well.
Avi Weisfogel chose this organization because they have been providing hope for others since 1982 when founders Bill and Kathy Magee started the organization. Originally they helped children in the Philippines and have since built Operation Smile into the global network of help that it is today. Weisfogel is a dentist in the New Jersey area and knows the value of a strong and attractive smile. He believes that all children deserve access to the highest level of medical care in the world. This organization brings the chance to have a wonderful smile to a world of needy children.
Weisfogel has been a practicing dentist in East Brunswick, New Jersey for 16 years. During this time he has provided smiles for thousands of people and has seen the difference that a change in appearance can make in the confidence of an individual. That confidence can go a long way in their ability to succeed in the world. His office is called Old Bridge Dental Care and they maintain the philosophy that each patient visiting their office is the most important patient there is. A comfortable and pleasant experience is provided by the hard working team that ensures a smile before, during and after any treatment. Operation Smile is a natural extension of this positive and successful practice and hopefully the world will be smiling brighter thanks to the effort of Avi Weisfogel.
