Meet Your Instructor
Dr. Carl Steinberg
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. 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. Dr. Steinberg has taught in the postgraduate residency program at Albert Einstein Medical Center. He lectures and interactively works with the students in developing their skills in understanding complex reconstructive cosmetic cases and patients with TMJ and occlusal dysfunction.
Dental Sleep Medicine has become another topic of presentation. Dr. Steinberg instructs and works with Sleep Medicine professionals on the use and efficiency of oral appliance therapy for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. He has been requested for radio interviews as well as authoring dental articles.
In 1997, the Academy of General Dentistry (www.AGD.org) honored Dr. Steinberg with their prestigious Mastership Degree. In attaining Mastership, Dr. Steinberg has met the highest criteria of excellence by taking 1100 hours of continuing education in the sixteen disciplines of dentistry. Approximately 1% of practicing dentists have achieved Mastership. In 2013, Dr. Steinberg was presented with the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry. Currently, there are only 300 other dentists in the country who have received this award.
