Welcome to Briarcliff Center for Esthetic Dentistry where we combine the absolute latest cutting edge dental technology with good old-fashioned five-star service to give you the finest dental care available in the country. The owner/director here at Briarcliff Center for Esthetic Dentistry is Dr. Michael Teitelbaum. Knowing he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and become one of the premier dentists in the United States, Dr. Michael raced through one of the most technologically advanced colleges in the country - Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - completing his 4 year bachelor's degree in biology in an amazing two years. He went on to become one of the youngest dental students in the country at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Although further education was not required in dentistry, Dr. Michael not only attended a one-year General Practice Residency at Lutheran Medical Center, but subsequently an additional two-year high-level specialty in Prosthodontics (crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, and cosmetic dentistry) at N.Y.U, where he continued teaching as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Prosthodontics for eight years until he decided to devote his full attention to his private practice.
Now happily married and a father, Dr. Michael is an Associate Attending at Phelps Memorial Hospital, and continues his educational mission by lecturing at Dental Association meetings across the country, teaching other dentists the latest in cutting edge and cosmetic dentistry. Whereas New York State recently passed laws requiring a mere 15 hours of continuing education per year, Dr. Michael maintains his lead by taking an average of one hundred (100) hours of continuing education per year. In fact, he has been awarded the prestigious Fellowship award by the Academy of General Dentistry after taking 500 hours of continuing education, taking a challenging all day examination and going through a media reported cap and gown ceremony.
You see, here at Briarcliff Center for Esthetic Dentistry we not only continually strive to give you the finest dental care possible, but also the best all around service experience you'll find anywhere! In fact, should you ever find something we could be doing better, please tell us. Should you find there's nothing we could be doing better, we will consider it the highest of compliments if you'll tell your friends, and, we'll even send you our special "Thank you gift of the month" to show it.
