Operation Smile is an international charity that matches underprivileged children with dental and medical services for no cost. The group specializes in emergency procedures like cleft palette reconstruction, and tooth and bone loss due to malnutrition, or birth defects. This organization is now getting help with raising money that will facilitate these operations for babies, school children, and young adults.
Avi Weisfogel DDS, a prominent dental specialist in Old Bridge, NJ, has lent his sponsorship to a brand new GoFundMe campaign boosting Operation Smile’s mission. He has set up this account in the amount of $2,000, and will personally manage it’s growth to fruition.
When interviewed about his career as a dentist Weisfogel says, “…I love what I do!” He also relates his passion for helping people who are in crisis when it comes to their health and appearance. This is perhaps the biggest motivator behind his desire to help a charitable organization like Operation Smile. Communities have given his business success, and now Weisfogel feels it’s time that he helped give back something in return.
Operation Smile was founded in 1982 by philanthropists Bill and Kathy Magee. It has an outreach composing a network of 80 countries, and has performed nearly a quarter of a million much needed procedures. As a leading dental professional, Weisfogel is the perfect person to help generate funds for this charity. GoFundMe accounts such as these are much more successful when set-up by professionals who are directly involved with the ultimate goal of the fund-raising. There is no better person than Avi Weisfogel DDS to back the incredible work done by Operation Smile.
