Dr. Barsh graduated from Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 1961 and interned in oral surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital. During his 38 years of clinical practice he was Assistant Clinical Professor at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, authored a textbook entitled Dental Treatment Planning for the Adult Patient, published numerous scientific papers, and has lectured nationally and internationally.

Dr. Barsh is President and founder of AdLIB DESIGN, a Web development and photography company in New York City.

Dr. Barsh has written two books on the web specifically for dentists.

Dental Web Sites That Work is an ideal beginner’s manual for dentists who are considering developing a web site for their dental practice. The book is written in an easy-to-understand, non-technical manner that takes the reader through all the steps: why a practice needs a web site, to choosing a designer and hosting company, choosing a domain name, design and development issues, writing for the web, email newsletters, marketing and search engine optimization. It is a must read before starting any new web site.

Make It Easy for Me is a guide to dental web site usability. Make It Easy for Me explores how the web is used, the coding behind search engine optimization, design of the home page, navigation, content, graphics, and web site usability. The book “deconstructs” over a dozen dental web sites and discusses how they can be improved. Comments from site owners on the effectiveness of their sites balance the author’s comments. It is a perfect follow-up for those who have read Dental Web Sites That Work and those who are somewhat versed in web site design.

Both books and more seminar information is available at
