About Me

Dr. Owen Cantor earned his D.M.D from the University of Pittsburgh and entered private practice in 1973 in his home town of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Cantor was a staff member of Allegheny General Hospital, where he helped to begin development of the General Practice Residency in the Department of Dentistry. Dr. Cantor taught for many years in the Behavioral Sciences Department in the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, where he won the Chancellor’s Award, the annual university-wide prize recognizing outstanding teaching.

In his Arts Community work, Dr Cantor was founder and music director of the Summerfest Chamber Music Festival, which presented fourteen summers of wonderful chamber music under the stars in Fox Chapel, PA. Before and during his early years as a practicing dentist, Dr. Cantor was a free-lance French horn player performing and teaching in many local venues as well as the Chamber Music and Composers’ Forum at Bennington College in Vermont.

Dr. Cantor has been an Artist-Lecturer in the Music Department of Carnegie Mellon University, and has taught popular, often over-subscribed, courses in Classical music and culture at CMU’s Osher School for Lifelong Learning for the past ten years.

Dr. Cantor raised two daughters who now live and work in New York City.
