Dr. Silberg opened his practice in July 1980. The original office was located across the street in the Robinson Professional Building. As a newly graduated specialist, Dr. Silberg restricted his practice to his chosen specialty of periodontics.
Dr. Silberg felt that by creating a new practice, rather than purchase an existing one, he would have the opportunity to implement his unique philosophy and vision of health care. Thus, with “0” patients of record, Dr. Silberg began the practice that would grow to what it is today.
The early years were difficult. The early 1980’s economy was in recession and the Pittsburgh area suffered greatly as our steel mills closed. Through Dr. Silberg’s tireless efforts and his commitment to excellence, the practice grew.
By the mid-1980’s it was apparent that the office space was too small and there was no room to expand. The Tower View office building was being built across the street and the decision was made to move to a larger office suite to better serve the patients.
Dr. Silberg designed a new space. In September of 1987, he moved across the street to the Tower View building at 6200 Steubenville Pike. The building is named Tower View because of the adjacent township water tower, which is in plain view.
Between 1984 and 1985 the dental implant field went through a radical redesign. Dr. Silberg began to study the new design and believed that it was now safe and predictable. He began to obtain the necessary training that was needed to be able to place implants for his patients. He placed his first implants in 1984. A gentleman named Romano received them, and the implants are still in place and functioning. In the years since, Dr. Silberg has seen the incredible benefits that implants provide, and has now restricted his practice to Implants and Periodontics.
