Dr. Erica DeFabio of DeFabio Dental Design is a specialty-trained prosthodontist. A prosthodontist is an advanced practitioner of general dentistry and cosmetic procedures. Becoming a new jersey prosthodontist requires 3 years beyond dental school. In these 3 years, one is taught a deeper understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements, dental implants, and other advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Prosthodontists are experts in treating the dental and facial problems that arise from missing teeth and jaw structures. Whether it is a single tooth or all of your teeth, a prosthodontist can help give you the perfect smile.

Two and a half years ago I was referred to Dr. Erica DeFabio, by my regular dentist, for her prosthodontic expertise. At that time, I had broken a bridge and presented with many challenges resulting from older work done by several different dentists.
Dr. Erica was extremely knowledgeable and was able to create a treatment plan that was suitable for me with great results. She has always taken the time to explain everything in great detail.
