David Podolnick, DDS

Hamilton Family Dental, PA

I was once asked, do you like dentistry or do you love dentistry? I said, ''what's the difference?" They said, "you can like your wife, but not love her, or you can love your wife and not really like her." Luckily I both like and love dentistry, and my wife of eighteen years. I'm a local with sand in my shoes growing up in Margate. My father is an MD and that instilled in me the thought I would be too. I also loved working with my hands, building models, fixing things, and painting. One day I woke up and realized if you combine medicine and working with your hands you get dentistry and I've never even thought of another career since. I attended Drexel University, then Temple University. Since graduating from the number one ranked University of Maryland in 1992 with a D.D.S. degree, I've loved providing patients with the best and most advanced dental care available.

Without any hesitation I would go into dentistry again. There is nothing better than having a career that is fulfilling on so many different levels. Being able to give relief to someone in pain is incredibly satisfying or to take a broken front tooth and make it whole again. I was honored to receive a Top Doc award in 2009, 2013 and again this year 2014. I've been in the Who's Who book several times. I am and have been affiliated with multiple dental organizations. But the best award I keep receiving is when a patient refers some they know or love to see me. Continuing education is probably the most important part of my ongoing education. My staff and I are always learning better ways to care for our patients and strive to provide 1" class customer care. I'm always searching for better methods, materials and easier delivery of dentistry. Come for a unique visit, that I pledge will be the best dental experience you've ever had.

As a lifelong New Jersey resident, I am proud and privileged to continue my career in beautiful South Jersey.  I am a graduate of the College of New Jersey, where I achieved a degree in Psychology with a concentration in Biopsychology and Pre-Health studies.  I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine where I was elected to membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society.  After dental school, I completed a General Practice Residency at Morristown Medical Center.  This advanced training allowed me to perfect my skills in all areas of dentistry, such as, endodontics, periodontics, pediatrics, restorative, oral surgery, operating room dentistry, dental pathology, and emergency dental procedures.  I also received extensive training and continuing education in cosmetic dental procedures and full mouth rehabilitation.  I love being able to not only make my patients healthier but also to give them the ability to smile confidently.

I am thrilled to begin this new chapter of my career at Hamilton Family Dental.  A very wise man used to remind me to “Just Have Fun,” and that is how I try to practice dentistry, with a positive, energetic attitude and a contagious smile.  I look forward to meeting you!
