What is a Prosthodontist?
A Prosthodontist is a Dentist with a Specialty Degree in the art and science of restorative dentistry. This includes crowns, bridges, cosmetic dentistry, dentures, implants and total bite reconstruction. It is the Science behind the Smile…
A Prosthodontist spends several years in residency training after dental school, learning advanced principles of biomechanics, bioengineering, dental materials and aesthetics. A Prosthodontist completes upwards of 9000 hours of continuing education specifically in the area of cosmetic, implant and bite reconstruction before being awarded a specialty certificate. A specialist in prosthodontics renders a uniquely qualified diagnosis, treatment plan and treatment outcome.
This enables us to be the designer and architect of your mouth, providing you with the finest planned dentistry possible. It enables us to understand how the unique combination of your teeth, jaw joints, muscles, chewing movements, aesthetics and individual habits can work in harmony with well chosen dental materials, to provide you with individualized, exquisite, functional and cosmetic dentistry.
In today’s world, it is challenging for prospective patients to educate themselves about choosing a dentist. We have committed ourselves to providing our patients with dentistry that achieves the highest level of health, comfort, function, longevity and cosmetic appearance.
This is accomplished by working with a team of professionals aligned and committed to our mission, philosophy and values. Not only our office team, but the team of professionals and specialists we refer to and work with daily. All team members must continue to earn the right and privilege to serve on this team through daily, weekly, monthly and yearly continuing education, meetings and reviews. Technical, academic, scientific, artistic and interpersonal excellence is not negotiable.
We take our profession and our practice seriously. We will treat you with compassion, respect and dignity. We will be honest with you about your condition and the options available to you. We will provide treatment to you in comfort. This means you will not get a foot massage here, or unfiltered apple juice served with organic carrots. Or freshly baked breads and cookies. We believe those are wonderful experiences and should be reserved for a day at the spa. In our office you will receive the highest level of individualized restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry delivered by a specialist who has dedicated his entire life to his patients and his profession. Your treatment recommendations will be based on solid evaluation and a blend of historically proven treatment protocols and state-of-the-science cutting edge philosophies, procedures and techniques.
