Joel H. Berg, DDS, MS

Dentistry

On staff since March 2003

"For me, there is nothing more important in dentistry than early intervention. Children are not healthy if their mouths aren’t healthy. Left untreated, dental disease can be intensely painful and costly and can lead to serious, lifelong health complications. I believe in transitioning to management of the disease before it devastates the mouth and potentially beyond. With so much more being discovered each day connecting the health of the mouth to the health of the body, early intervention becomes ever-more important."
