Eric Bernstein, DMD

Early Beginnings

From a very early age, Dr. Bernstein wanted to be a medical doctor. His father would bring home monthly medical publications and he would keep them in a journal to study and learn as much about the human body as possible. He was even teased by his 5th grade teacher that with his poor handwriting he was destined to be a physician. He has always been driven toward health care and helping others.

Why Dentistry?

In his junior year at Vanderbilt University a friend of his was applying to dental school and Dr. Bernstein decided to learn more about the dental profession. He decided that a career in dentistry would still allow him to help people as well as use his talents with his hands. There is an artistic touch required in aesthetic work that Dr. Bernstein enjoys. Restoring function and beauty to a smile can be life changing.
