Local Dentist Spends Weekend Teaching Implant Procedures

Dr. Ira Goldberg, a leading local authority on dental implants, spent multiple days at the end of June training dentists who were just beginning their dental implant career. As a respected educator, it’s not uncommon for Goldberg to share his knowledge and expertise with others.
As part of the faculty at The Dental Implant Learning Center in Englewood, Goldberg spent time with a group of doctors performing actual implant procedures for patients.
“It always an honor to work with dentists who want to further their talents with dental implants,” he said.
“These doctors are spending time away from their families and own offices to learn skills that will make them better dentists for the benefit of their patients.”
What’s even more surprising is how full circle this teaching position is for Goldberg. Twenty three years ago he began his own implant career at this office.
“Dr. John Minichetti, the director of this program, started his teaching career due to me trying to find a hands-on program where I could learn implant skills,” he said. “These programs really weren’t available. I pushed Dr. Minichetti to start the program, which he did. Now, here I am as an instructor passing my knowledge onto others. It’s a real pleasure to be invited to do so.”
“Dental implants have revolutionized patients’ options,” says Goldberg. “Instead of removable dentures and aggressive bridgework being only options, we are able to offer other services retained by implants. Whether a person needs a single tooth or a full jaw replacement, its amazing what we can now offer.”
When asked about his role as an educator to other dentists, Goldberg stated, “I’ve always heard that when you’re passionate about something, it shows. I’ve been providing implant services for over 23 years, and I’m always excited about it. I guess that’s why other doctors and dental professionals ask me for my thoughts, help, and guidance. It’s quite an honor, I love to share.”
Goldberg holds many honors in the field of implant dentistry. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology / Implant Dentistry, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Goldberg is the owner of Morris County Dental Associates in Succasunna. He performs all phases of implant dentistry, and rarely are referrals required. For a free consultation, including a free 3-D scan (if necessary), call
