Did you know that more than half of the people who suffer from sleep apnea do not even know that they have the problem? One of the main challenges that Doctors who deal with the condition face is the lack of proper diagnosis. One doctor has decided to create awareness about the condition and the many others that affect the oral and dental health of individuals and he has achieved a lot of success so far. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a dentist who practices on New Jersey and he has center for the research and treatment of patients with the sleep disorder.
Dr. Avi is one person who believes in the concept of education being a continuous process. He takes part in many sessions of continuing education and in the process, he states that he learns newer and better ways of carrying out procedures. He believes that the best gift he can offer his clients is the ability to do things in easier and more efficient ways.
The dentist is also a strong believer in philanthropy. For the past ten years that he has been carrying out his research, he has also been a part of an organization that is known as operation smile. This is a group of people that treat children with oral and dental deformities, both inborn and artificial. The main patients that receive these procedures are people suffering from conditions such as cleft lips and cleft palates. This is an initiative that is carried out mainly in the third world. It is transformative because the people who receive the treatment cannot afford the surgery and therapy involved.
In order to support this cause that Dr. Avi is very passionate about, he has been raising money through a Go Fund Me campaign. He believes that it is possible to accumulate enough money to create awareness about this charity and meet the financial costs that are needed for the treatment of children with the condition. So far, the group has operated on 200,000 children and they hope that they can do even better in the future.
