What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are the ultimate problem solvers trained to treat the most challenging patient cases. After obtaining a DDS degree, they receive an additional 3 years of intensive training in the fundamentals of dentistry such as implants, dentures, partial dentures, bridges, crowns, smile design/makeovers, occlusion (bite), and temporomandibular disorders (TMD). From simple one tooth restorations, to rebuilding entire mouths on teeth, implants, or with dentures, Dr. Lisa Kane has the education, training, and clinical experience that have earned her respect and recognition by both her colleagues and patients.

“After having my face trampled by a horse, causing me to lose and break many front teeth, Dr. Lisa Kane restored my smile with implants and ceramic crowns as I went through a very difficult recovery. My smile is beautiful and she was very caring and spent as much time with me as I needed as I went through the healing process. She will be my dentist forever!” Stacy A.
“Dr. Kane made the best dentures I have ever worn, even after I had been told by others I needed more surgery which I refused to go through. She listened to my concerns and paid attention to every detail and I couldn’t be happier!” Mary J.
“Dr. Kane redid my old veneers and crowns and I have received so many compliments regarding my new beautiful smile! I have referred family members to her also!” Mrs. Brown
