Meet Dr. Steinberg

Dr. Steinberg is very respected by peers in the dental field and is known for his compassionate chair side manner in his practice at DFW Implant Team.

"Great experience"



"Dr. Steinberg is Awesome!!! I have been a patient of his for about 15 years and have had several implants and other surgeries. My experience has always been positive. Dr. Steinberg is energetic, kind, gentle and caring. He is also funny! His knowledge and communication skills are beyond impressive. The staff is always professional, helpful and sweet. I feel very blessed to have Dr. Steinberg helping me with the continued care of my teeth and gums. I highly recommend Dr Steinberg as your Periodontist. He is the best!!!"



"I walked into his office last year with very low expectations of what could be done for me. But from the first visit until now I couldn't have been happier. He gave me my smile back. I couldn't have ask more from a dr. He was very open and honest with me. I was a very rare case and much challenge for him. All of the ladies in the office was just great to work with also. Not sure if he will see this or not but Thank you again for what you have done for me."



"Dr Steinberg and his entire staff are simply the best. I had bone grafts and a dental implant. All went well and healed quickly."



"Like the opportunity to keep everyone updated and informed"
