He continues to take advanced training courses to keep up with the latest and greatest developments in dentistry and, from time to time, Dr. Karl still comes into the office to help cover for Dr. Forgosh when he is out of town.Dr. Glassman is a legend in the local cycling and running community.

They come back to the Lehigh Valley for the rest of the year, and have been instrumental in the growth and development the renowned Women’s 5K Classic as board members since its inception in 1993.
