Quality Dentistry for Discerning Adults

Up What is a Periodontist? What is a Prosthodontist? Referrals Special Expertise Qualifications

Whether you have routine or complex dental needs, you won't find a more qualified dentist than Dr. David Fox.

Advanced University Training

After becoming a dentist he completed four additional years of university approved, full time, advanced post-doctoral training.  This included advanced training in general and hospital dentistry, as well as earning dual specialty certificates in both prosthodontics and periodontics.  Only a handful of dentists in the world hold dual specialty certification in these areas.

Continual student

Like most dentists, he has enhanced his formal professional education by taking continuing education courses to stay up to date.  He was awarded Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry after completion of his first 500 hours of continuing education and passing a day-long written examination (only 2 percent of dentists in the United States earn this award). 

Dr. Fox continually updates his knowledge by taking courses around the country.  Since completion of specialty training, Dr. Fox has amassed over 2,500 fully accredited hours of additional continuing education.

Teacher and clinician

Dr. Fox has served as teacher for over twenty years on the faculty of three different dental schools and two hospital based training programs. He has trained dental students and dentists in advanced general and hospital dentistry, taught dentists to become specialists in periodontics and prosthodontics, and has conducted continuing education courses for other dentists around the country.  A number of his former students have become university dental school educators.  He has served as a consulting specialist (to the State Board of Dentistry, insurance companies, dentists, attorneys, industry, and the public).

He is a member of many professional organizations. Among these is the prestigious American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics - the highest national recognition for dentists who have made exceptional contributions to advancing the specialty of fixed prosthodontics through teaching, publication, and superior patient care. Membership in this organization is a honor bestowed only after careful evaluation of professional credentials and accomplishments.

Advanced Training & Licensure in Conscious Sedation

Advertisements for oral sedation dentistry have become common in the past few years.  Most dentists who advertise such services have little more training or education than a three day lecture course.  Serious complications, including death, have occurred in patients who have been improperly sedated or monitored by inadequately trained dentists.

Dr. Fox, however, has extensive advanced training in conscious sedation with oral, inhaled, or intravenous drugs and in management of medical emergencies.  His advanced education in these areas includes hundreds of hours of supervised experience and education during his hospital and university based training.

Dr. Fox's office, credentials, sedation protocols and sedation methods have passed rigorous inspection by the Pennsylvania Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons Office Anesthesia Evaluation Program.  He is one of fewer than forty dentists providing restorative and periodontal care in Pennsylvania to be awarded the Pennsylvania Anesthesia Permit and License for Conscious Sedation by the Pennsylvania State Board of Dentistry - having been so licensed since 1989.  The doctor is certified in both Basic and Advanced Cardiac Life Support by the American Heart Association, and renews this certification every two years.  Dr. Fox also takes 15 to 30 hours of additional continuing education in emergency medicine, anesthesia and sedation every two years to ensure his patients have access to safe, modern methods of sedation for their dental care.

Dentists have voted to include Dr. Fox as one of The Best Dentists in AmericaSM


The Best Dentists in America has included Dr. Fox in annual  editions since 2004. This directory is published by Woodward/White, which has been publishing highly regarded referral lists of lawyers and physicians for over twenty-five years.  Listings in this directory can not be purchased, and no payment is required to be listed. 

Inclusion is based solely on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 9,680 leading dentists throughout the United States were polled on the abilities of other dentists in general and specialty practice.  Of 140,000 practicing dentists in the country, only the top 5% (7,147 dentists) were selected for this directory.

Dr. Fox was honored to be listed as one of the best dentists in America among specialists in prosthodontics, as well as those in periodontics.  Few dentists have achieved this distinction - while only a handful are listed in more than one category.

Dentistry for the Quality Conscious

Having a special interest in bringing the latest advances in dentistry to patients, Dr. Fox has cared for quality conscious people from all walks of life for over twenty-three years.  These people appreciate the benefits of a higher level of professional care and service.

He also helps other dentists in the region manage difficult clinical problems.  He is available for coordinated therapy with other dental professionals, private consultation with colleagues regarding their patients, second opinions, or management of referred patients - either for comprehensive care or isolated procedures.

Anyone who wants to explore the option of becoming a patient (with or without a dentist's referral), is welcome to call our office for an appointment.
