Dr. Stephen J. Gershberg has been improving patients’ smiles at our Bryn Mawr practice for over three decades. He performs a wide variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments for outstanding outcomes. In addition to sharing his experience and expertise with our patients, Dr. Gershberg uses his skills to teach up and coming dental students about this field. He often gives lectures on implant dentistry, restorative procedures, and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Gershberg has also been a faculty and staff member at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Philadelphia for the past eight years. Read on to learn more about their General Practice Residency (GPR) program and how Dr. Gershberg contributes to it.
How the General Practice Residency Works
As part of earning a graduate degree in dentistry, students must do more than just complete comprehensive coursework—they also need to refine their practical skills in a clinical environment. To do so, dental students complete residencies, specialized training in a hospital setting. At Albert Einstein Hospital, the Maxwell S. Fogel Department of Dental Medicine employs only the top-rated clinicians to teach everything from restorative procedures to advanced cosmetics to students in the program. All of the faculty members are on the floor in the hospital. Dr. Gershberg and his fellows help GPR residents with every phase of their clinical procedures, working with live patients who pay a reduced fee for their care.
Dr. Gershberg’s Contribution to the College
Dr. Gershberg is well versed in many dental specialties, so he educates dental residents about a multitude of advanced techniques. He uses his skill and knowledge to help students with:
- Simple restorative treatments, such as fillings, crowns, and bridges
- Advanced cosmetic procedures such as bonding, porcelain veneers, and customized smile design
- Periodontal surgery to repair and enhance patients’ gum tissue
- Dental implant restoration
In addition to overseeing and aiding residents as they perform procedures, Dr. Gershberg regularly gives PowerPoint lectures to teach students various clinical approaches. He describes his time at Albert Einstein Hospital as “a very rewarding experience.”
