Dr Betty Haberkamp completed Dental school at Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry in 1984. She went on to complete a general practice dental residency at Cleveland Metro General hospital in 1985.
She then settled in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin, where she was affiliated with Marquette University School of Dentistry and the Medical College of Wisconsin. There she focused her practice on the dental care of Special Needs patients. She also maintained a private practice in Brookfield, WI. IN 1997 she moved home to the Chicago area where she maintained a private practice and taught at the general practice residency program at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, again focusing on the dental care of Special Needs patients. She became the Director of Special Patient Care there. This affiliation allowed the ability to offer dental care under general anesthesia.
In 2011 Dr. Haberkamp joined the professional staff at Cleveland Clinic. This presented a unique opportunity to expand her focus on dental services for the handicapped patient to include a spotlight on dental care of the head and neck radiation and the medically compromised patient. Since the Cleveland Clinic is one of the few programs in the world that focus on the multidisciplinary management of these patients including their dental needs, this was an ideal location. Recently she became the dental coordinator for the SoundBite prosthesis program, which is an alternative to the bone anchored hearing device.
Dr Haberkamp has maintained an ongoing focus on teaching in both residency programs, and on education of the practicing dentist as well as dental assistants. She has been active in the Academy of General Dentistry where she has served as President of the Illinois AGD and Chicago component also. She is currently serving on the PACE committee which approves continuing dental/medical education courses with the Academy. In addition, she serves as a consultant to the Dental Assisting National Board.

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists
receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 2/13/2015, Dr. Haberkamp has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers’ discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.
