Dr. Edward Magida, DMD

Dentist / Owner / Instructor
Since May 1999, Dr. Magida has taken many courses in orthodontic diagnosis and techniques. These courses are taught by many dentists who are recognized as leaders in their field. Dr. Magida will continue to take many more orthodontic courses since this is an area of dentistry that interests him very much. Cosmetic dentistry is also a major area of interest to Dr. Magida and he has taken courses taught by the best in the profession. Since 1988, Dr. Magida has had the privilege of being on staff at several nursing and convalescent homes. Helping patients at these facilities with their dental problems has been a rewarding experience. Dr. Magida is a member of the Pennsylvania Dental Association, the Montgomery-Bucks Dental Society, the International Association for Orthodontics, the American Dental Association, as well as a member of both the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Dr. Magida had the honor of achieving the status of Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. This fellowship was awarded during the summer of 2000 in Toronto. Dr. Magida received his bachelors degree in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, a well regarded Ivy League institution . He received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, a world renowned dental school. After graduating dental school, Dr. Magida was asked to participate in an extra one year program at the dental school. This program included a select group of newly graduated dentists, who upon completion of a very rigorous year long program, were awarded a Fellowship in Advanced General Dentistry. Dr. Magida was then asked to remain at the dental school as a faculty member. He taught both undergraduate and graduate dental students for several years.
