Dr. Noah P. Orenstein grew up on Cape Cod. His training gave him the opportunity to live and work in other areas of the country, but he always wanted to settle and raise his family in Boston. His father, a dentist, and mother, a psychotherapist, were his greatest role models in pursuing a career in healthcare. Their respective influences instilled in him acute skills in sensitivity and attention to detail, which intertwine perfectly in his clinical practice.
As a compassionate person, Dr. Orenstein’s favorite part about being a prosthodontist is being able to develop relationships and play a positive role in people’s lives. Additionally, he loves the ‘first reveal’, when a patient sees their smile for the first time after they have completed any cosmetic dental treatment. Additionally, Dr. Orenstein understands that overcoming anxiety can be a challenge for many people and goes out of his way to approach dentistry in a positive, caring, and sensitive manner. It is exciting what patients can accomplish when they are listened to, supported, and then motivated.
After attending Phillips Academy in Andover and Emory University in Atlanta, he completed his dental degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Upon graduation, having developed an interest in implant dentistry, Dr. Orenstein immediately began his post-doctoral surgical training at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. After a year in private practice he felt compelled to provide a more advanced level of service and care to his patients, which encouraged him to attend the University of Connecticut for a three-year advanced specialty degree in Prosthodontics and Implant Surgery. Concurrently, he obtained a Master’s degree in Facial Esthetics. In 2013 he became Board Certified by the American Board of Prosthodontics (a distinction that only 1 of every 20 Prosthodontists in America achieve.) Dr. Orenstein is dedicated to being proficient in the most cutting-edge procedures and has additionally earned certifications as an Invisalign and Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ provider.
Dr. Orenstein served as an adjunct faculty at the Harvard University School of Dental Medicine’s Advanced Program for Implant Reconstruction and at the Graduate Department of Prosthodontics at the University of Connecticut, teaching dental residents proper implant surgical and restoration techniques for complex patient treatment. Additionally, Dr. Orenstein has been published in many nationally recognized prosthodontic journals.
