Paul Feuerstein, DMD Begins 2010 by Accepting Prestigious Industry Award and Academic Appointment

Every once in a while I get a chance to write about a really great human being and this is one of those times. I've known Paul Feuerstein for at least 15 years. In that time he's been a great friend, a dedicated educator, a patient co-lecturer, and a crazy uncle to my family. I love him like the brother I never had. Paul was recently honored by his state of Massachusetts and I could not be more proud of him!

Dental Industry Thought Leader Named Clinician of the Year by Yankee Dental Congress and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine

North Billerica, MA – (March 31, 2010) – For Paul Feuerstein, DMD a practicing general dentist and one of the dental industry’s most prominent key opinion leaders, 2010 is off to a great start.

In January, Dr. Feuerstein was presented the Clinician of the Year Award by the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS).

The award also includes a $1,000 donation to the dental school of Dr. Feuerstein’s choice, which is his alma mater, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey

According to the Yankee Dental Congress, “Paul Feuerstein has been a fixture for more than half of Yankee’s history. At the forefront of technology, having installed one of dentistry’s first “in office computers” as early as 1978, Dr. Feuerstein has honed his knowledge in his high tech dental office and shared that knowledge with his colleagues at Yankee Dental Congress. Always willing to design a new course for the Society, he has been instrumental in bringing others into the computer age, introducing them to such things as the internet, digital radiology, and other technologies. Dr. Feuerstein is also the high tech writer for The Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society. Dr. Feuerstein is the consummate volunteer, always available to help with no expectation of anything in return.”

More recently, Dr. Feuerstein was appointed Adjunct Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in General Dentistry. Located in downtown Boston, the school is dedicated to training doctors of dental medicine as expert clinicians. In this role, Dr. Feuerstein will have the opportunity to introduce the latest technologies to the students, faculty and CE course attendees.

“This has certainly been an exciting year so far,” said Feuerstein. “I’ve always felt fortunate for the opportunity to work in a profession that I truly love, and where I can help so many people. The clinician of year award from the Yankee Dental Congress and the academic appointment from Tufts University are definitely highpoints of my career.”
