Meet Dr. Eisenberg
Michael S. Eisenberg, DDS
The obvious aspects of dentistry, like getting a patient out of pain, restoring a smile, improving a smile, and helping someone to chew better are all huge positives of being a dentist. However, it is truly amazing to me when I see the level of understanding, acceptance, and trust my patients have put in me and my team.
I enjoy getting to know our patients and their families and hearing their stories. It’s good to know when they leave the office, their dental health is better than when they came in and their oral health won’t keep them from enjoying their lives to the fullest.
Education and experience
Before starting my career as a dentist, I received extensive education and training to ensure my patients received the very best care possible.
- Bachelor of Science in bioengineering — University of Pennsylvania, 1982
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery — University of Michigan Dental School, 1986
As a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, I need to maintain a level of continuing education credits per year that far exceeds the number of credits necessary for licensure in the state of Pennsylvania. In addition, I received my Fellowship status in the AGD, which required me to complete 500 credit hours and pass an examination covering all topics in dentistry.
My knowledge gained from continuing my education benefits my patients because I know I am presenting all available options and that these options are current. This is true in the diagnostic phase of treatment planning as well. I am more familiar with varying oral conditions because of the continuing education I take.

Outside the office
I am married to my lovely wife, Laurie, who is a teaching Professor of history at Carnegie Mellon University. We have three children, Rebecca, Hannah, and Benjamin, and a dog named Bailey. In my leisure time I enjoy amateur radio as well as running. I’ve even completed the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Marathons!
Between the dental practice and being a father and husband, there’s not a huge amount of time to spare, but I did recently become the Treasurer of our synagogue. This also takes time with meetings, reports, and presentations, but they’re a good group of people who I enjoy working with.
