Late night with America's funniest dentist, Dr. Dan Greenstein

March 21, 2012

Dr. Dan Greenstein has been making those who work in saliva laugh since 1989. The GP from Boca Raton, FL saw his stand-up career take off after gaining exposure from television's America's Funniest People. "I was a winner on America's Funniest People in 1991, which led to a lot of local publicity in the local newspapers, including the Miami Herald," explains Greenstein.

The GP from Boca Raton, FL saw his stand-up career take off after gaining exposure from television's America's Funniest People.

"I was a winner on America's Funniest People in 1991, which led to a lot of local publicity in the local newspapers, including the Miami Herald," explains Greenstein.

Greenstein was approached by a local dentist about performing at a Black Tie Dinner in Miami. One thing led to another and he eventually found himself being asked to do stand-up at the meetings of several dentists in the area.

"This led to me performing for the Profitable Dentist Newsletter Spring Break Seminars for five years in a row," says Greenstein.

In 1992, Greenstein was a finalist in COLGATE's Search for America's Funniest People. He continued to perform at local comedy clubs and also for state, local and national dental meetings from coast to coast.

"I've performed from Bangor, ME to Anchorage, AK to Wyoming and Nebraska," says Greenstein. "I was recently in Canton, OH and Geneva, IL for a repeat performance for the Fox River Valley Dental Society."

Greenstein was a guest on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" for his CD entitled "Spit Happens!" in 2003.

The Dr. Dan Show is an hour-long multi-media program featuring music, power point, parody songs and tons of jokes about what Dr. Greenstein says really happens in offices today.
