Dr. Feldman was recently inducted as a Fellow in the Pierre Fauchard Academy. This international dental honor organization recognizes leaders and future leaders in the profession. Fellowship in the PFA is extended to fewer than 3% internationally.

He serves as the only general dentist on the Board who is not affiliated with the dental school. He returns to the UF College of Dentistry often to volunteer his time with the Comprehensive Dentistry Program (CDP). Dr. Feldman joined the Student Admission and Recruitment Committee for UF College of Dentistry to help select future Gator dentists!

In his spare time, Dr. Feldman enjoys being with his wife and their daughter. When they’re not checking out the latest playground with their little one, he and his wife are also big Gators fans and enjoy watching football, basketball, and all things Gators sports!
