How many people do you know have the same job for many years and still love what they do?
If you are reading this, chances are you do know someone…Dr. Lee Lichtenstein!
A native to New Jersey, Dr. Lichtenstein graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry where he received the Williams Pitt Mason Award for Outstanding Achievement. Back to New Jersey for more degrees and certifications; Dr. Lichtenstein graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University, School of Dentistry, and then completed the General Practice Residency program at Middlesex General Hospital (Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center). He then received his MBA from SUNY – The State University of New York.
In addition to his other patients, Dr. Lee Lichtenstein successfully manages and treats individuals with a wide range of difficult issues who could not be cared for easily or comfortably in the traditional and conventional dental office setting. Every day is a new patient and a new challenge that he just loves to handle the best way possible.
What separates Dr. Lichtenstein from almost every other dentist is that he is a hospital residency trained anesthesiologist. Dr. Lichtenstein completed his anesthesia residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York (one of the cornerstones of Northwell Health in NY) and practiced part-time in the OR at LIJMC. He provided anesthesia services for all types of patients in the hospital and for all varieties of dental and oral surgical procedures.
Anesthesiology has been recognized as a specialty by the American Dental Association. He is one of an extremely few dual-trained Dentist Anesthesiologists in the State of NJ who is Board Certified. This sets him apart from other dentists and even other sedation dentists who do not have his level of training, certification and experience. Dr. Lichtenstein is a member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists. Diplomates of the ADBA represent the most highly trained and trained and experienced anesthesia-provider dentists in the profession. All Diplomates of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology must meet specific recertification criteria every six years to maintain their status, so his training is kept up to date.
Besides working as a general dentist and anesthesiologist, Dr. Lichtenstein provides services to several organizations including extensive contributions to the New Jersey Dental Society of Anesthesiology (past President and in other executive positions). He served as the Treasurer for the national ASDA, for two decades, as well as participating in its special committees. He is also a lecturer for anesthesia review courses and has made presentations at national anesthesia conferences. Dr. Lichtenstein is a member of the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, and the Monmouth and Ocean Counties Dental Association.
