About Dr. Steven Gilbert of Gilbert Dental Care

Dr. Gilbert graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1977. After graduating, he began private practice in center-city Philadelphia. Practicing esthetic dentistry was a natural choice since he came from a family of artists, and it’s become his passion and the area of dentistry where he gained a reputation for dental excellence. Dr. Gilbert loves people, and he’s gained a reputation for showing care and compassion in general and preventive dentistry. He’s also taught dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, and he has lectured on the technical and management aspects of dentistry to dentists from around the world. Dr. Gilbert was also recognized in the book “A Gentleman’s Guide to Philadelphia” as the “Best Dentist.” He lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia with his wife of 33 years, Barbara, as well as their two daughters.
