A Toronto native, Dr. Brian Rittenberg graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1992 with a Bachelor Degree in Psychology. He then completed his Dental Degree, specialized training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a Masters in Bone Biology at the University of Toronto and Toronto General Hospital in 2003.
Since starting his practice, Dr. Rittenberg enjoys teaching dental interns and residents at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he has also cultivated an interest in the surgical management of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders. He is also an attending surgeon in the Regional Treatment Centre for Temporomandibular Joint Reconstruction there.
In addition to having a special interest in the surgical management of TMJ disorders, Brian enjoys practicing all facets of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, including the removal of wisdom teeth, the placement of dental implants, the evaluation and surgical treatment of pathology (diseases of the mouth) and corrective jaw surgery.
Dr. Rittenberg has also served as a line officer and ultimately president of the Ontario Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, is involved with the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (the national licensing body for all dental specialists) and is a fellow of the ITI – International Team for Implantology.
Outside of teaching and work, Dr. Rittenberg is a runner, hockey player, traveller, enjoyer of good wine and food and, above all, thankful for the time he gets to spend with his wife Lindsay and his daughters Joey and Ruby, up on beautiful Lake of Bays.
