Dr. Rod Strober is a cosmetic dentist with 26 years’ experience delivering high quality patient-centered care. He has built practices in Boston and San Diego, and now he hopes to bring his successful approach to Rancho Mirage.
Building a Foundation
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Strober graduated from Skidmore College in 1989 with a strong science and liberal arts background and continued on to The State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. There he was able to combine his love of art and science into a career as a general and cosmetic dentist. After graduating in 1993, he moved to Boston, MA, where he successfully practiced for 14 years. Growing tired of all the cold, snowy winters, Dr. Strober jumped at the opportunity to move to sunny San Diego where he was able to start practicing on his own.
Creating a Community
In San Diego, Dr. Strober started with a small practice that ultimately became highly successful with a strong following of loyal patients. With dedication and hard work, he assembled a great dental team to build a patient-centered practice that offered outstanding customer service and utilized the latest technologies and techniques in dentistry.
With a commitment to providing the very best for his patients, Dr. Strober is heavily involved with local and regional associations including the CDA, ADA, AGD, and the IACA. Since advancements in dental technology and procedures occur so frequently, he is constantly attending seminars, and joining peer groups in order to stay abreast of all the latest materials and techniques. He was even honored with a Fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Strober practiced in San Diego for 11 years before moving to the desert, thinking he had retired from dentistry.
Dr. Strober’s Return to Dentistry
But it turned out that he wasn’t ready to retire. He loved dentistry and he missed serving his patients and his community, so he has purchased Country Club Dentistry, where he plans to utilize the same dedication to quality care and outstanding dentistry to build his new practice.
He looks forward to the joy of meeting all his new patients and hopes to give them the same transformative experience he delivered at his previous practice. He will offer general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and the treatment of sleep apnea.
He is also focusing extensively on the placement of dental implants. He recently completed coursework for his Mastership from the International Dental Implant Association (FIDIA). This required him to attend a Cadaver course and complete 250 hours of continuing education about dental implants. Dr. Strober also visited the Dominican Republic in October 2019 and placed over 40 dental implants to obtain his certification.
Although Dr. Strober does love dentistry, it is not the sole feature in his life. He also enjoys many hobbies, including working out, pickleball, and step aerobics.
