We got the chance to interview Dr. Edward Zuckerberg, DDS— who is notably the father of Mark Zuckerberg (yes, that Mark Zuckerberg). Ed is a fantastic dentist who is just as forward thinking as his son, Mark. In this two-part episode, we were also graced with the presence of Dr. John Landers— so this was our first episode with a full-house in-studio! Not bad for thirteen episodes in.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of this incredible episode of Dentists, Implants and Worms!
Dr. Zuckerberg is a 1978 graduate of New York University College of Dentistry. He completed a general practice residency at the Brooklyn V.A. Hospital in 1979 and received advanced training in Oral Surgery, Periodontics, Endodontics (Root Canal) and Prosthetics (Crown, Bridges and Dentures). In 1984, Dr. Zuckerberg received a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.) recognizing his superior achievements in post-graduate continuing education.
To this day, Dr. Zuckerberg regularly participates in courses to improve his craft utilizing modern techniques and materials. He has consulted with insurance companies and appeared as an expert witness in court. Dr. Zuckerberg has published articles in Dental Journals on his observations and on his development of new techniques and is featured in the September 2010 issue of Dentaltown Magazine where he writes on the use of Social Media (Facebook) for Dentists. His ability to render comprehensive care, while being especially sensitive to the needs of phobic patients, sets him apart from his colleagues. Dr. Zuckerberg’s outside interests include scuba diving, photography and contract bridge.
