The DINKS are back with another amazing guest this week! We had the honor of spending some time with Dr. Ed Zuckerberg. He attributes his early investments in CAD/CAM technology to helping to launch his son Mark's interest in computers which later lead to the founding of Facebook. So, he may know a thing or two about social media and investing in new technologies that will change the way we diagnose and treat patients. He's a great dentist in New York and has an exciting new venture that could really enhance the dental-medical relationship via evaluating the Oral Systemic connection.
About our guest:
Edward J. Zuckerberg, D.D.S.,F.A.G.D. is a 1978 Graduate of NYU College of Dentistry. He owned his own practices in Brooklyn and Dobbs Ferry, NY from 1979-2013 and has always been an early adopter of technology, introducing his first PC in the office in 1986 and completely fully networking his home-based office with broadband access in 1996. Dr. Zuckerberg’s early adoption of technologies including digital radiography, CAD/CAM & creation of a paperless office caught the attention of Industry leaders who enlisted him to lecture, write articles and beta test new technologies. The advanced technology in the home helped launch his son, Mark's, the founder of Facebook, interest in computers. With his wife of 43 years, Karen, a retired Psychiatrist, they also have 3 daughters, Randi, former Marketing Director at Facebook and now CEO of Zuckerberg Media, Donna, who received her Classics Ph.D at Princeton and is now an author and editor of the online publication, Eidolon, featuring a modern way to write about the ancient world & Arielle, who is a partner in a Financial Firm in San Francisco, as well as 7 grandchildren. Dr. Zuckerberg lectures nationally and internationally on Technology integration in the Dental Office, Social Media Marketing and the Oral Systemic Connection, and consults privately with Dental Practices and advises Dental/Medical Technology Startups in addition to treating patients part time in Cupertino, CA. Dr. Zuckerberg authored the chapter on Social Media on the ADA’s recently released “Practical Guide to Internet Marketing.”
In 2021 Dr. Zuckerberg was named the Chief Dental Officer for Keystone Bio, an early clinical stage BioPharmaceutical Company dedicated to eradicating the known driver of inflammation and disease, Porphyromonas Gingivalis (Pg) present in the mouths of 50% of all adults. He also joined Revere Partners in early 2021, the First Independent Venture Fund for Oral Health.
