Dr. Avi Weisfogel: America’s Busiest Dentist, Hip Hop Star, Philanthropist, and Sleep Apnea Expert

Avi Weisfogel is one of the most famous dentists in the Northeast. He is also one of the busiest. And, no, that is not only because of his award winning dentistry at New Jersey’s Old Bridge Dental Care, for which he has been given the Best Dentist award many years in a row. Dr. Weisfogel actually has many other interests and talents that has brought him great acclaim in recent years.

For example, Dr. Weisfogel can be found on Soundcloud dropping some sick original hip-hop beats. These hip-hop songs have provided Dr. Weisfogel hours of fun, and they have gained him great support in recent years from fans of his music.

The support garnered from both his hip-hop productions and his dentistry work all help Avi Weisfogel with his philanthropic and educational ventures. One of Dr. Weisfogel’s primary concerns is raising awareness of sleep apnea through his “Healthy Heart Sleep” campaign that he launched with other sleep specialists in the area. Dr. Weisfogal has taught at many dentist conventions in recent years on a variety of sleeping issues. He is interested in finding places where dentistry intersects with sleep abnormalities. Through these lectures, Dr. Weisfogal hopes to arm all dentists with the best knowledge and tools available for helping patients who may have sleep apnea.

In addition to his work educating others on sleep apnea, Dr. Weisfogel began his own GoFund Me page to help the charity organization Operation Smile. This organization has helped thousands of children with cleft lips or other facial deformities. Professional plastic surgeons work to bring smiles to the faces of these children all around the world. Dr. Weisfogel’s current goal is to raise $2,000 for Operation Smile.

Gorgeous hair starts with the right clean and this can often be a problem when you are using typical lather.
