His goal is to have his patients leave with a smile on their face and looking forward to their next stage of treatment. After attending Yeshiva University and graduating cum laude, he then attended UMDNJ dental school and finished in the top of his class. Immediately after finishing dental school he completed a general practice residency at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY where he focused on comprehensive as well as complex dental cases.
He then went on to complete his Endodontic residency at UMDNJ, the only endodontic program in New Jersey. While there he trained under some of the most prominent and well respected endodontists in the country. He received training utilizing the newest and most cutting edge technology. Dr. Berry achieved the highest honor that an endodontist can receive by becoming board certified within a year of graduating his residency. The board certification process demonstrates an exceptional skill, knowledge and overall expertise in the field of endodontics. Less than 20% of endodontists in the world are board certified. He is one of the youngest endodontists to ever receive this honor.
Dr. Berry maintains his board certification with the American Association of Endodontics College of Diplomates, American Dental Association, New York State Dental Association and Nassau County Dental Society.
Dr Berry is a clinical attending at Lutheran Medical Center helping to shape the minds of the next generation of endodontists.
Dr. Hossein Moosavi
Dr. Hossein Moosavi began practicing as a General Dentist 10 years ago in several locations including New Jersey and Colorado. He received his D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree from Colorado School of Dental Medicine in Denver. To have a better understanding of implant dentistry and to help in treatment planning for his patients, Dr. Moosavi spent a year as a preceptor and researcher at the UCLA Dental School Implant Center. He presented his research on “The Objective Parameters for Ideal Implant Positioning in the Esthetic Zone” at the Academy of Osseointegration’s annual meeting in Orlando Florida. While practicing as a General Dentist, Dr. Moosavi took a great interest in Endodontics and saving the natural dentition which lead him to apply for an Endodontic Residency. Dr. Moosavi completed his Endodontic training at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, receiving a Masters in Dental Science and a Certificate in Endodontics. While at Rutgers he also completed a comprehensive training program in Implant Dentistry from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, which resulted in a further understanding of treatment planning for compromised and cracked teeth.
Dr. Moosavi’s continued passion for research was honored with the AAE/Dentsply Residents Award for his research presentation on “The Time Lapse between Completion of Endodontic Treatment and Restoration in a Dental School Setting” at the American Association of Endodontists annual meeting in New Orleans. Dr. Moosavi enjoys research and teaching so much so that he has become a part-time faculty member at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine and is currently in the process of becoming a Board Certified Endodontist. In his spare time, Dr. Moosavi enjoys spending time with friends and family, hiking, traveling, reading, and cooking. Dr. Moosavi’s calming personality and extraordinary clinical skills will make it easy for you to relax while having a root canal. Dr. Moosavi looks forward to treating you.
There is nothing as good as a natural tooth. However, sometimes your tooth may need root canal therapy in order for it to be a healthy part of your mouth. An endodontist is a dentist with two to three additional years of training that is specifically focused on diagnosing and treating problems involving the nerves of teeth.
Endodontists have advanced training in both surgical and nonsurgical therapy that allows them to perform routine as well as complex procedures. They are adept at all aspects of root canal treatments including: root canal therapy, root canal retreatment and apicoectomy. They are also experienced at helping to find the cause of oral and maxillo-facial pain which is often times difficult to diagnose.
Rest assured that the care that an endodontist provides is supported by the extensive education on how to perform the very best endodontics.
