Dr. Berman is the past president of the Maryland State Association of Endodontics and is a member of the Journal of Endodontics Scientific Advisory Board. He is a contributing author and co-editor of the most widely used endodontic textbook, Cohen's Pathways of the Pulp. He is also the senior editor and contributing author of the comprehensive textbook, Dental Traumatology. A board certified endodontist and fellow of the American College of Dentistry, Dr. Berman has been in full-time private practice in Annapolis, Maryland for the past thirty years.
Dr. Berman is also an avid boater who has competitively raced in local and regional competitions, racing J-30s around the Chesapeake Bay. Enhancing his skills as a lecturer, he is a self-taught expert in PhotoShop and video editing (he calls it “therapy”). As another past-time, it might not be unusual to find him at a local karaoke bar. Philanthropy is another passion of Dr. Berman. He was the director of his local hospital's Foundation Board for ten years, the last of which he served as Chairman of the Board. Though his fundraising efforts, the board raised enough funds to facilitate the move of his community's historic downtown hospital (where he and his dad were born!) to a new state of the art hospital center.

Endodontic Prognosis Assessment
It would not make sense to build a nice house on a questionable foundation. And, when it comes to restorative dentistry, the clinician needs to make sure the endodontic status of the tooth has a good prognosis. Whether it’s an endodontic diagnostic issue, surgical or non-surgical endodontic treatment, or endodontic retreatment, establishing the potential success of the case is imperative. Dr. Berman will go through a common sense and methodical approach for assessing the endodontic prognosis for several different endodontic case-based scenarios.
