Bernadette Sawa, DDS              Prosthodontist at Staten Island, NY 


What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) which pertains to the replacement  of missing teeth, missing tooth structure and tooth restoration. Prosthodontists attend an additional 3 years of advanced training after 4 years of dental school which is why Dr Sawa is able to provide dental treatment for both simple and complex cases. These 3 additional years of schooling provides dentist's with advanced training needed to diagnose, treat and manage the dynamics and relationship of a healthy smile and the function of your teeth. Patients who visit a prosthodontist can rest assured that their dentist has extensive experience in treating complex cases where multiple specialists are needed and are considered the "problem solvers" of restorative dentistry.  To learn more about why you may need a prosthodontist, visit
