Dr. Rosenberg has been a pediatric dentist in Joplin since graduating from the University of Missouri Dental School in Kansas City. His internship and pediatric residency were completed at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City as well. He began his private pediatric practice in the Medical Arts Building before building his permanent office at 2602 Picher in 1972.
The tornado of May 2011 destroyed that office completely, and like many of his fellow dentists, he was down but not out. With only missing one week of work Dr. Rosenberg secured two temporary locations; one in Joplin and one in Pittsburg, KS, and the rebuilding of a new office began. Dr. Rosenberg began practicing in the new office in May of 2012, and continues to practice in Pittsburg, KS as well.
When not in the office, Dr. Rosenberg enjoys going to auctions and sales looking for antique toys. He attends numerous toy shows throughout the year. He and his wife Patty have four grown children.
Shelli is the office manager and has been with Dr. Rosenberg since August 1985. When asked what she enjoys doing in her spare time Shelli always answers; spending time with Jax, McLaren, and Dallas (her grandson, grand-daughter, and daughter), cats (Libby, Lucy, BC, & Dewey), and doing nothing!
Sue has been an assistant for Dr. Rosenberg for nearly 30 years. Our Queen of assisting is married to (her King) Tony. They enjoy living in the country. Tony is a musician and they travel to local boot-scootin events most week-ends. Their dogs, Speck and Dollar enjoy the trips to McDonalds!
