Why He Was Nominated

Patient focus. Dr. Fleischman practices with a patient-centered approach to comprehensive care. “Most patients come to the dentist’s office knowing what to expect, but they don’t know the full potential the experience can offer. That’s what we’re trying to show them, in an environment of comfort and trust.”

Tool He Can't Live Without

His dedicated team and continuing education, often at the same time. “Nothing is more important to me,” Dr. Fleischman says. He routinely flies out to the Spear Institute at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Arizona and is involved with several local peer study clubs. “The goal is for us to work with patients and  understand them as a whole. This is not single-tooth dentistry.”

Biggest Challenge

“I’m relatively young, and I have a young family. Finding that harmony between home life and work life is always a delicate balance.” Dr. Fleischman and his wife have a 2-year-old daughter and are expecting their second child in early August.
