Dr. Michael Curtis, D.M.D., is the founder, editor,
and president of Hundreds of Pearls. He graduated from the University
of Pennsylvania in 1978, where he received several scholarships
and awards. He then completed 2 years of residency training at Albert
Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia and Montifiore Hospital
in New York.
During his 30 years in clinical practice, Dr. Curtis
has been a "major CE junkie." He has "tried or ordered
just about everything out there" and "made every mistake
in the book" while building a highly successful, multi-specialty
practice in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Over the years, Dr. Curtis has seen dentists grow
increasingly confused and frustrated with the avalanche of magazines,
mail, and ads for expensive courses, services, and products.
In response, he has developed numerous practice resources,
invented several dental products, and assembled 100s of "pearls"
for greater efficiency, profitability, and enhanced clinical qualityfound
Dr. Curtis has been a member of the ADA, AGD, and
various other dental organizations. He has served as an instructor
at University of Connecticut and New York University Schools of
Dentistry. Outside of dentistry, he enjoys laughing, sports, music,
and travel. He is married with 3 children.
