Dr. Carl Steinberg
Dr. Steinberg’s achievements span a wide range of professional and personal activities. Most recently he was voted again as one of Philadelphia’s top dentists. Philadelphia magazine surveyed the dentists in the surrounding five counties to compile their list of top dentists. After attending Temple University for only three years he was accepted into their School of Dentistry. In 1980 he received his Doctorate Degree in Dental Surgery. During his time at the undergraduate and graduate level, he received numerous student awards, most notable being elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.
Dr. Steinberg’s formal training continued with post-graduate education at West Jersey Hospital’s residency program. Upon completion of the program he entered private practice settling in center city Philadelphia. For the next sixteen years Dr. Steinberg was a clinical instructor at the residency program helping the students understand the importance of the interrelationship of the dentistry they were learning and the people they were treating.
Dr. Steinberg’s continual association with education exhibits a commitment to the ideal of being a perpetual student. A philosophy of ‘everyone is my teacher, I can learn from everyone’ is true when he is the student listening to others or the instructor being challenged by his students. He is currently part of the faculty at Spear.
