Why They Were Nominated

Dr. Weber had an exemplary academic career, graduating at the top of his class and, through residency and externships, went on to learn esthetic dentistry, implant placement and restoration, endodontics, emergencies, surgery and braces.

Philosophy

“My job is to educate, inform and empower patients to make the best decisions for their oral and overall health. The choice is always the patient’s, but my role is to make sure they fully understand what they’re signing up for when they decide their treatment.”

Something People Don’t Know

“When I was 10 years old, I met Mother Teresa. She placed her hands on my head and said a prayer. I remember being a tiny little guy at that time, but we were about the same size.”
