AviWeisfogel; the Dentist with a difference

There was a time that Mother Teresa said that we all cannot always do great things in the society, but we can always do small things with great love and this is what makes the real difference by the end of the day. This is the one saying that seems to have been taken to heart by DrAviWeisfogel. He has been practicing dentist treatment in the state of New Jersey for the past few decades and the people who know him and have used his services state that he is one of the best dentists that they know. He has received many accolades and honors in recognition of the work that he has been doing for his community and others beyond his immediate reach.

One of the initiatives that Dr. Avi started is the Dental Sleep Masters. He started the initiative when he realized that very many people had cases of undiagnosed and hence untreated sleep apnea. He decided that it would be good to try and get other dentists to weigh in on the problem and the research lab came up. The laboratory houses some of the finest doctors in the field and aims to get a lasting treatment for problem. So far, they have gotten an instrument that stimulates the upper respiratory track and helps sleep apnea patients breathe better approved by the FDA. They are also hoping that through the different sensitization campaigns, they will manage to get more people to get tested and diagnosed about the condition.

Another initiative that he has been part of for sometime is the operation smile campaign. This is a charity that he came up with when he realized that most of the children born with cleft lips and palates in the third world could not afford corrective surgery. He has been carrying out a Go fund me campaign, hoping to raise enough money to support a few more kids through the initiative this year. There are many other works and initiatives that he has been part of over the years. The success of these ventures is what has made him one of the best dentists around.

Andy Wirth: Environmental Warrior

In September, the city council of Reno, Nevada voted affirmatively for the Clean Power Plan, an environmental initiative with the aim of reducing dependence on coal power. As a resource, coal is considered dirty power as the combustion of coal releases pollutants into the atmosphere and into the surrounding terrain. Thanks to greater awareness in the environmental fields, new economic and moral opportunities are presenting themselves, allowing both local government and private industries to reap the benefits. There is a natural give and take between the government and businesses in this regard. As the government votes to support clean energy, companies that follow these regulations benefit from doing so. As such, more companies begin to use clean energy solutions, thus putting the pressure on the government to vote for clean energy initiatives. This also allows larger companies that have already gone green to make Reno their home. Companies like Google and Tesla are major players in their respective industries, and both desire to expand into new territories that support their environmental friendly vision.

However, these changes are not simply economical and political, rather they are a knee-jerk reaction to the poor standards that the region faces. The quality of air, water, and other natural resources has deteriorated for decades, leaving a once beautiful landscape tarnished.

This fact resonates within Andy Wirth, the president and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings just outside of Reno in Placer County, California. The survivor of a skydiving accident, Wirth has dedicated his second chance at life to improving the environment to not only improve the experience of his guests, but for everyone in the Lake Tahoe region. In fact, Wirth is so dedicated to his work that just fifty days after his accident and subsequent twenty three surgeries, he returned to work in a full capacity. Wirth maintains that improving environmental conditions will not only improve the quality of life for the people of the Tahoe Lake region but also the floundering economy.

Information was taken from the article that was originally published through the Reno Gazette-Journal with Wirth’s entire op-ed.
