Dr. Greif's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Greif "Dr. Greif is a native of Cedar Rapids, and he graduated from Regis High School in 1979. He attended the University of Iowa from 1979-1982 as a Chemistry major, and then applied for admittance to dental school after his junior year of college. Dr. Greif attended the University of Iowa- College of Dentistry and graduated in 1986. He practiced as an associate in Des Moines for 4 years and moved back to Cedar Rapids in 1990. Dr. Greif is a member of the American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association, University District Dental Association and the Linn County Dental Association. He is additionally certified in Implant Placement and Restoration and also certified in Invisalign Orthodontics. He and his wife Karen have 3 children, Trenton, Zachary and Jennifer. Trenton is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis who majored in Japanese. He will be attending the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa starting in August 2018, Zachary is a student at Iowa State majoring in Mathematics, and Jennifer is a junior pre-dental student also at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Greif has an extreme passion for learning and his latest interest is to learn all he can about wine. He has passed the Certified Sommelier (second Level) examination administered by the Court of Master Sommeliers in July 2014, after passing the Introductory Sommelier Examination in 2013. He is currently the only Dentist/ Certified Sommelier in the world. He is waiting to find out if he has been accepted to take the very difficult Advanced Sommelier exam, a test that less than 900 people worldwide have ever passed. Dr. Greif enjoys playing golf and is a member of Golfweek Magazine's golf course rater panel, allowing him to play golf courses throughout the United States. His favorites that he has played are Augusta National, Fishers Island, Cypress Point, Winged Foot and Pine Valley. He is also a Fly Fishing junkie, and looks to fish whenever and where-ever he can. He has fished all over the United States, Alaska and Canada, but still loves to fish the spring fed streams of NE Iowa."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Greif "I believe in giving patients the best care possible without costing a fortune.   We believe in minimally invasive dentistry, using such techniques as Air Abrasion which minimizes the sensitivity of having a filling done.  many times we can restore teeth without the need for a shot using these types of dental technology."
