level and always with a big smile. “There’s an innocence about kids, and
they’re really funny. That makes my work fun,” he says.

“What sets us apart is our integration of periodontal therapy with a
comprehensive approach, including restorative dentistry,” says Dr. Barry
Wagenberg, who has practiced periodontics since 1974. “We develop
treatment plans in consultation with our restorative colleagues to coordinate all aspects of patient care.”Dr. Wagenberg provides state-of-the-art
periodontal and implant services and is a pioneer in same-day implant
and tooth placement. While he has done more than 14,000 dental

treatment, a painless alternative to conventional therapy. “We aim to
provide long-lasting, aesthetic results, delivered with minimal discomfort
and cost,” he says.

and Columbia University’s graduate periodontal program, Dr. Wagenberg
is director of dental education and periodontics at Newark Beth Israel
