With help from his highly trained team members, he provides advanced treatment plans and surgery for the construction of corrective restorations and prostheses to restore proper function and esthetics of the mouth, face, and jaw.

What does full mouth reconstruction mean?

The treatments can range from crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures that will essentially provide a “smile makeover” for the patient.
