Dr. Bernstein was born and raised in South Africa and attended the prestigious Wits Dental School finishing top of his class. He then completed his orthodontic specialty residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Following his residency, he accepted a fellowship position at the University where he became a clinical assistant professor in the orthodontic department.
He yearned for a climate similar to South Africa so he decided to relocate to Southern California, where he met his wife Debbie, also a dental specialist. He opened his first orthodontic practice shortly after.
Dr. Bernstein is committed to excellence in orthodontics. He has lectured nationally on self-ligation and early interceptive treatment to other orthodontists and dentists. He strives to provide the latest and greatest to all of his patients in a friendly, upbeat atmosphere.
In his spare time, Dr. Bernstein enjoys racing go-karts, working out, snowboarding in winter and devoting himself to his wife and two daughters by going to birthday parties, ballet recitals, gymnastics classes and more.
