DR. MICHAEL GRUBER
IN PRACTICE: 33 Years
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE OFFICE?
I love participating in water sports, especially competitive sailing. I also enjoy taking adventurous trips with my
family. Most recently, I spent time with my daughter in
Tanzania, and we climbed Mount Kilimanjaro last summer.
Also, I am in the process of developing a free dental center for the children at the Boys and Girls Club in
Newark. It is going to be staffed by volunteers: hygienists, assistants and doctors. We should be open by July.
WHAT IS THE FOCUS OF YOUR PRACTICE?
We do restorative work, crown and bridge work. Also in general dentistry, we can do any of the specialties.
WHAT TECHNOLOG Y HAS CHANGED PATIENT CARE IN RECEN T YEARS?
Spectra. It’s an early-cavity detection device. The Spectra fluoresces
the tooth and the image is blown up on the computer screen. It looks
like a Doppler radar, just like you see on the Weather Channel. If you
have a cavity, it is going to show up in a red or yellow region, just
like a storm brewing. People understand that completely. And the
results are consistent from user to user.
The previous device was the Diagnodent, which for years was
very good and still is very good, but it is not
consistent from user to user, hygienist to hygienist or doctor to doctor. If they are using
it at a different angle or further away from the tooth, they might have a varied
result. But the Spectra is very consistent. There is a template that it slides on that
