Prosthodontics is one of the nine ADA-recognized dental specialties that provide actual certification from an officially recognized dental board, the American Board of Prosthodontics. Fewer than one in five prosthodontists (17%) earn board certification in prosthodontics. Dr. Joseph DiFazio is one of the very few board-certified prosthodontists in the United States.
Prosthodontists receive rigorous training and education focused on restorative treatment and the replacement of missing teeth. Our goal is to create beautiful smiles that are both functional and comfortable for patients.
Prosthodontists receive three years of training after successful completion of their four-year general dental training. The training exposes them to the latest research and clinical experts in a variety of other medical disciplines. This extra training results in a dental restoration specialist with a wide range of diagnostic insights and treatment approaches.
Dr. DiFazio’s qualifications and skills extend well beyond the mouth and jawbone. As a Board-Certified Prosthodontist and Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, he creates prostheses for virtually any head-and-neck defect, including problems with ears, eyes, cheeks, nose, cranium, and more. Dr. DiFazio’s experience working closely with other healthcare professionals in various medical fields helps him become more involved in his patients’ sometimes complex rehabilitative processes.
Prosthetic care is often an essential complement to helping ensure his patients’ self-esteem, confidence, and future quality of life.
