Dr. Levine is heavily involved in continuing education and organized dentistry for personal growth, professional growth, and for the benefit of his patients.

Dr. Levine earned his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) in 2006, which was the culmination of earning over 500 hours of continuing education spread over 16 different disciplines of dentistry and passing a full day examination.

He is also a National Spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Levine is also involved, although not as strongly, at this time (his wife would kill him), with the American Dental Association, the New York Dental Association, and the Ninth District Dental Association.
In addition, Dr. Levine is a participant in the PEARL Network (Practitioners Engaged in Applied Research and Learning - based out of New York University and sponsored by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research - NIDCR), is a consultant for various dental products companies, a consultant and expert witness for a large dental malpractice insurance company, is a participant in a national network of dentists providing free care to those people that are prescreened and do not have the financial resources for care (Donated Dental Services), and he is exceedingly proud of being a Hartsdale Rotary Club Past President and Paul Harris Fellow.
Dr. Levine is married, Gloria, with 2 boys (16 and 18), Samuel and Joshua. Joshua is now a student at The University of Massachusetts Amherst, studying Computer Science. He is an avid skier, scuba diver, hiker, fisherman, horseman, and a hack golfer. He has been living in Westchester and practicing in Hartsdale since 1993, having originally grown up in Suffolk County, Long Island. While still with friends and family on Long Island, he has been heard to refer to Long Island as “a parking lot which I like to visit”.
