Doctor of Dental Surgery
Dr. Fishman grew up in the Pikesville area, graduated with honors from Towson University and earned his degree as a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.

For the next half decade, Dr. Fishman practiced and perfected these skills while working as an associate dentist in nearby Greenspring Station, Towson and Severna Park, MD, before purchasing the current Reisterstown dental office from his latest mentor, Dr. Alvin Schuster.
Dr. Fishman believes in treating each patient like family. He values each person's time and unique needs. He strives to provide gentle dentistry and personalized and comprehensive care to all his patients with a relaxed, yet efficient approach. Dr. Fishman also takes pride in offering specialized services including Invisalign ®, root canals, tooth whitening and other restorative dentistry techniques under one roof for the convenience of his patients.
Outside of the office, Dr. Fishman loves to stay active and is an avid soccer and tennis player.
