A Note from Dr. Lieberman
Although dentistry is important to me, I believe that a professional cannot be a complete person unless they live a balanced life. Apart from my accomplishments in the field of dentistry, my greatest achievements are my two wonderful daughters. I am overflowing with love and precious memories of traveling, bicycling, kayaking with my children... all the while discussing dental advances and new emerging dental trends and technologies.
When not practicing dentistry and spending time with my children, I enjoy riding my Harley with my dental colleagues to visit each other’s' practices and taking pilgrimages to dental institutions of all kinds. My favorite hobbies involve painting, pottery and sculpture, and I never tire of finding new ways to include dental themes in my work. In the winter, you'll often find me skiing with my cohorts and regaling them with spirited discussions of recently attended dental courses and upcoming meetings and conventions.
In warmer weather, my friends and I love to hike, primarily in the Adirondacks, where we take along our dental study models and X-rays to discuss treatment plans. Usually, we wait until we reach the summit before sitting down to engage in these activities to enhance the experience and have something to look forward to.
After a long and arduous tooth-filled day, I unwind at home by soaking in my custom-made, bicuspid shaped bathtub, then jumping in my molar-shaped bed and drifting off to sleep counting incisors jumping over dental floss.
Disclaimer: Toothfully, all kidding aside, I do find that balance in life is an elusive friend, especially when there is an excess of passion in your heart but a scarcity of time. I enjoy giving back to the community, my many friends (some of whom I met in the practice), spending time with my now adult daughters, theater, playing piano, painting, traveling, gardening — it is a lifelong project for me, as I'm sure it is for most of us.
