About Barry D. Wagenberg

“What sets us apart is our integration of periodontal therapy with a comprehensive approach, including restorative dentistry,” says Dr. Barry Wagenberg, who has practiced periodontics since 1974. “We develop treatment plans in consultation with our restorative colleagues to coordinate all aspects of patient care.”Dr. Wagenberg provides state-of-the-art periodontal and implant services and is a pioneer in same-day implant and tooth placement. While he has done more than 14,000 dental implants, his goal is to save teeth. He offers laser-assisted periodontal treatment, a painless alternative to conventional therapy. “We aim to provide long-lasting, aesthetic results, delivered with minimal discomfort and cost,” he says.

An alumnus of University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and Columbia University’s graduate periodontal program, Dr. Wagenberg is director of dental education and periodontics at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and a clinical associate professor at NYU. A noted educator, researcher and author, he strives to be at the forefront of his field. Dr. Wagenberg received the 2014 Master Clinician Award from the American Academy of Periodontology and recently delivered full-day courses at the Air Force Training Facility in San Antonio, Rutgers, University of Georgia and the Southeast Dental Society. Dr. Stephanie Cruz recently joined him in practice.
