Meet the Pinnacle Family Dental Team

Dr. Howard Silver and your dental professionals. We have a new name but it's the same great team.

Howard Silver, DDS

Dr. Howard Silver graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1993 with a bachelor’s (BS) degree in Biology, and the State University of New York at Buffalo with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1997. In 1998, he went on to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Buffalo.

Dr. Silver is committed to perfecting his craft through ongoing education and training. He is a Pankey Institute dentist, working under the philosophy of helping patients receive the best care possible and educating patients to make appropriate choices to achieve comprehensive treatment—versus fixing teeth one tooth at a time. In addition, Dr. Silver has received continuing education at the Kois Center, an innovative training program on the latest advances in esthetic, implant and restorative dentistry.

Since purchasing the practice in 2001, Dr. Silver has continued to grow his patient base through the recommendations and referrals of satisfied patients. He considers his patient’s loyalty, referrals and each and every appointment a privilege he earns by taking good care of his patients’ smiles year after year.

In addition to working in his Pittsford practice, Dr. Silver has also worked part time as a Clinical Instructor at SUNY Buffalo School of Dentistry (1999-2005). He served as President of Rochester Dental Study Club in 2004. Dr. Silver is married with three children. In his spare time, he enjoys skiing and travel.
