Interview with Howard Goldstein, DMD
Bio: a general dentist and a 1980 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. He completed a general practice residency at the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center and opened his private practice in 1982. He has always been an advocate of continuing education, but was often frustrated by the lack of opportunities to dialogue with others in the dental profession. That changed in 2003 when he discovered Dentaltown.com. Interactions with others on Dentaltown, provided him with the knowledge and stimulus to add new technology, products and techniques into his dental practice. He is grateful that he “no longer has to practice alone.” As Message Board Manager, Howard maintains Dentaltown.com as the prime Web site for everyone in the dental profession to discuss all aspects of dentistry openly. As Director of Continuing Education for Farran Media, he continues his passion for CE by making sure all Townies have access to accredited, relevant courses that enhance their practice. He had a successful dental practice for 30 years which prided itself on treating patients like royalty and with treatment dictated by insurance companies. He lives with his wife, Deborah in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In his free time, he collects Single Malt Scotch Whisky, enjoys running and biking, and likes hiking in the Pennsylvania woods with his Labrador Retrievers.
