Why He Was Nominated

Treats his patients like relatives — and trains his famously loyal staff to do the same.

Inspiration

Many dentists grew up with fathers in the field, but Dr. Segal’s inspiration came from his mother, a prosthodontist. “I grew up seeing the passion she has, as well as the difference she has made in countless people’s lives,” he says.

Favorite Office Music

“My kids have me hooked on pop music. The beat keeps me moving all day.”

Something People Don't Know

He has a substantial sweet tooth. “One of my assistants bakes me a carrot cake every week,” he says. “I can’t function without it.”
