What Is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists receive 3 additional years of intensive training in the fundamentals of dentistry such as implants, crowns, bridges, smile design/makeovers, dentures, partial dentures, occlusion (bite), and temporomandibular disorders (TMJ). They often see some of the most challenging cases where patients have many needs such as missing and broken down teeth who have forgotten how to smile and who have lost their ability to chew comfortably.

For a long time I thought that I had dropped out of the joyful camaraderie of friends. Your willingness to work with me has renewed my dignity in a life worth living.
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!
Dr. Kane is not only pleasant but is very passionate and dedicated to her profession. I am fortunate to be treated by such safe and skillful hands. The whole staff is also to be appreciated for being polite, helpful and cooperative.
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!
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!
