NADENT was founded nearly 40 years ago by Dr. Charles Silberstein in Islip, N.Y. Under his leadership, NADENT pioneered the methodical review of dental trauma claims for insurers and self-insureds. Over 20 professional dental consultants throughout the country enable NADENT to review millions of dollars in claims and to provide fast, written reviews, expert witnesses for arbitration and litigation. In addition we have a network of dozens of other highly trained dental experts available to examine patients to perform Independent Examinations, or IMEs, as needed. Training is also available for claims handlers, either by webinar or in person site visitation.
Transition in Leadership:
In early 2013, Dr. Silberstein, appointed Dr. Joseph Tomlinson to succeed him as National Director and CEO. Dr. Tomlinson has been an integral part of NADENT’s success for over 30 years. He and partner, Dr. Joel Feinberg, along with staff, look forward to continuing and improving upon the tradition of excellence in service NADENT has long been known for.
