What made me decide to get into dentistry was I love helping people, and out of all the fields of medicine, this is the only one where you get to work with your hands but also really help change someone's smile, either improve on it and bring it back to what it once was or make changes to it that no one else can notice. Those sort of changes is why I entered dentistry in the first place, and to be able to help people, get them out of pain.
For undergrad, I went to Yeshiva University in Manhattan, spent four years in Manhattan, went from the big city to Boston University for dental school. I was there for four years, graduated cum laude in 2016, and worked at a health center for a year and a half, eventually ended up coming here. Over time, I've taken several continuing education courses including in aesthetics, particularly with composites and just general aesthetics, and also with implants, placement of implants, restoration of implants.
What I like best about my job and being here is that I get the ability to help people day in, day out. Whether it's take them out of pain, take care of fillings that need to be done so that they don't get into pain in the first place – which is a big part of our job, is preventing pain from coming on in the first place – and then also just returning their smile to either the glory that once was or if there is an issue upfront, especially where it's in the aesthetic area, just make sure that there's nothing really going on.
Dr. Isaac Zisblatt decided to become a dentist because he likes helping people. He gets to live this dream every day by helping his patients maintain or return their smiles to their natural beauty.
Dr. Zisblatt graduated cum laude from Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2016 and joined our team two years later. When he’s not improving smiles at the office, he likes spending time with his wife and two boys, especially doing outdoor activities like sailing and water skiing. He and his family also enjoy following the Patriots, the Celtics, the Red Sox, and the Bruins.
