Meet Dr. Schub

What’s your role here at CPW Dentistry and what does a typical day look like for you?

I’m a general dentist at CPW Dentistry. My typical day consists of performing check up exams, placing fillings and crowns, and since I work on the weekends, seeing emergency patients for things like broken teeth, fillings that have fallen out, or pain. What’s great about CPW Dentistry is that since we are open 7 days a week, we can always be there for people when they need us. The office is open on Sundays – which is very unique among dental offices – and that’s the day I work most often. It’s a pleasure to be available on a day when it’s otherwise hard to find a dentist. This really helps people who would rather not miss work in order to have their dental visits.

Why do you love working at CPW Dentistry?

I love working at CPW Dentistry for more reasons than can be counted. Most importantly, the staff– everyone from the administrators to the billing team to the dental assistants, hygienists, and doctors– is truly committed to the overall mission of our office- to provide the highest level of clinical care with utmost kindness and care. When you have an entire team that is dedicated to the same goal, the work is an absolute pleasure.

What motivates you to come to work every day?

I’m motivated to come to work everyday because I know that my training and experience has given me the privilege of caring for people. It is an honor to be able to practice dentistry and I am grateful that at CPW Dentistry, I get to treat the best patients in the entire world!

What makes you feel accomplished and why?

There are a lot of things related to your health that you might not realize your dentist can help you with. I love it when people come in for a check up, and we end up discussing other things that affect their oral health, such as tooth grinding, dry mouth, tonsil stones, acid reflux, and more. It’s fun to work with people to connect the dots between their overall health and dental health!

What is your favorite oral health fact?

Dental and oral health needs should be tailored to the individual, and your medical history may affect your dental needs. Conditions like acid reflux, dry mouth, cancer or certain cancer treatments (radiation, chemotherapy, transplants), and many more will all require that I tailor your treatment specifically to you. I completed part of my training at Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Hospital, and I am passionate about helping patients with past or current cancers keep their oral and dental health in tip-top shape.

What’s the best way to start the day?

By brushing my teeth! Then, I take my dog Lacey to Central Park for off-leash hours in the early morning. We come back home, and I love to cook a big breakfast!
