Dr. Solomon Philosophy

After 35 years of practice, my passion for dentistry still remains the thriving force of my life. I am thankful for the knowledge and capabilities that I have acquired and the experience I have gained. My continued education each year allows me the opportunity to gain an even greater ability to assist my patients and bring them the confidence and health that they entrust in me and my team. Every opportunity to relieve a person of either physical or emotional pain gives me the strength to work even harder for their benefit. Other than my loving wife and four children, my practice will always be the main priority in my life. That is the promise and commitment I make to each of you!


Dr. Solomon’s goal is to solve the pain puzzle that accompanies TMJ disorder. He believes that each and every patient should be given the treatment needed to help relieve them of the suffering that comes from TMJ.

His best-selling book “Dream Big…Smile Big!” details his early life, tracks his professional journey into dentistry, and explains various dental procedures.

What sets Dr. Solomon apart is his commitment to his patients and humanitarian causes. He proudly supports various charitable organizations including ARM, dedicated to funding the advancement of research for myopathies. Through his Dream Big Smile Big Scholarship, he annually awards college students pursuing a degree in dentistry with tuition assistance.
