Dr. Paul Steven Weber
Dr. Weber was born and raised in Huntington, Long Island, New York as the son of a family dentist. Following in his father's footsteps was always his dream. So, upon graduating from high school, he applied for and was accepted to the prestigious Six Year Dental Program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. As one of only sixteen applicants accepted nationwide to this unique and innovative program, Dr. Weber received both his Bachelors of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees upon his graduation in 1980 at the age of 23. He has been licensed to practice dentistry in New York ever since that summer.
Upon returning to Long Island, Dr Weber enjoyed working with his father in Hicksville, NY. Upon his father's retirement in 1984, Dr. Weber then continued a successful, solo practice on Long Island until 1997 when he then moved his family to Cooperstown, NY seeking a simpler, less hectic life. By putting a small office in a historic old home, Dr. Weber was able to spend more time with his family and with his patients than ever before.
From the beginning, Dr. Weber realized the importance of teaching his patients everything they needed to know about their dental care. It was through this process that he would watch them begin to relax and then take an active part in their oral health. This concept has always proven to be very successful in creating a calm, healthy dental environment for patients of all ages. With the help of computerized imaging and digital records, this process has become even easier and more interactive.
Dr. Weber has always given back to the community in which he practices. For this reason, and like his father before him, Dr. Weber has been an active member of Lions Clubs International for over 40 years, helping to serve those in need on a local, national and even international level. In recognition for his service to others, Lion Dr. Weber is the recipient of two International Presidential Awards and six International President's Certificates of Appreciation from the world's largest service organization.
Dr. Weber has three daughters who are all grown up, happy, healthy, and pursuing their own life's dreams. He and his wife Heidi still live in the over 200 year old home spending much of their free time gardening, enjoying the company of their three pet goats and five laying hens, and pursuing many artistic endeavors together. Dr. Weber is also an accomplished musical performer who entertains both the locals and the tourists in Cooperstown at Mel's at 22 every Thursday evening. During his gigs, Dr. Weber has always donated his tips back to the Lions Club, having raised over $4,000 for special causes.
