Name of Practice:
The Dental Offices of Steven Hippeli, DMD, and Loren J. Grossman, DMD
DMD, University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine
Why He Was Nominated:
Dr. Loren Grossman started his practice more than 35 years ago, but it wasn’t until a certain dogged dental school student started showing up to shadow him each Friday that he finally met someone he could trust not only to team up with, but potentially to helm his practice one day. The two officially partnered in 2018. Dr. Hippeli has excelled in all aspects of cosmetic and implant dentistry. “The practice has thrived ever since he joined me,” Dr. Grossman says.
“Dr. Grossman has mentored me not only in the art of dentistry, but in the arts of business and life. Every hectic Friday I spent shadowing him would end with a good meal and lessons about how to treat people instead of just teeth. Every day I’m thankful for his mentorship.”
Tool He Can’t Live Without:
“My iTero Element intraoral scanner. It makes performing Invisalign treatments accurate and efficient, and taking impressions extremely easy. I use it for every phase of treatment, including impressions for crowns, bridges, implants, surgical guides, removable partial dentures and occlusal appliances. Most days, the scanner spends all its time in and out of my treatment rooms because I rely on it so much.”
