Judith Steinberg Dean, M.D., (born May 9, 1953) is an American physician from Burlington, Vermont. She is the wife of Howard Dean, the former Governor of Vermont and past chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Steinberg Dean was the First Lady of Vermont from 1991 until 2003.
She earned her bachelor's degree in biochemistry at Princeton University and then received her Doctor of Medicine degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, where she met fellow medical student Howard Dean.
After completing a fellowship in hematology at McGill University in Montreal, Steinberg moved to Burlington, Vermont, with Dean in order to set up their joint medical practice. She uses her family name "Dr. Steinberg" while in her practice to differentiate herself from her husband.
As her husband served in the Vermont House of Representatives, and as Lieutenant Governor and Governor, she remained working full-time in her practice. She did not campaign with her husband in his quest for the U.S. Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 until after he lost the Iowa caucuses.
