Dr. Silverman's role at DOCS Education

As a general dentist with over three decades of experience, Dr. Silverman first began studying anesthesia and sedation after noticing how many of his patients exhibited dental fear and anxiety.

Utilizing his training, including a mini-residency in IV sedation at Montefiore Hospital in Bronx, New York, he began developing safe and effective oral sedation dentistry techniques and protocols. Seeing the tremendously positive impact sedation treatments had on his patients, and the incredible need throughout the U.S., he joined forces with Dr. Anthony S. Feck to found the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education) in 1999.

With the help of sedation dentistry, Dr. Silverman has restored the dental health of tens of thousands of high-anxiety patients. As a faculty member and the President of DOCS Education, he has taught over 30,000 dental professionals how to safely implement sedation in their own practices.


Professional accomplishments and business ventures

Dr. Silverman's extensive dental background and entrepreneurial spirit led to the development of two additional dental-focused companies: RAMP, a full-service dental advertising agency, and b2d Marketing, a rapidly growing dental and medical marketing company. He currently serves as the President of all three organizations.

In November 2015, Dr. Silverman was inducted as a Fellow of the International College of Dentists in recognition of his exemplary professional accomplishments and devotion to improving the practice of dentistry.

He has been published in many dental trade publications including AGD Impact, Dental Products Report, and Dental Economics.
