Dr. Seal is a prosthodontist, which is a specialist in the restoration and replacement of natural teeth. Prosthodontists are not just general dentists. Following four years of dental school, prosthodontists complete two to three additional years of residency training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. This program ensures the mastery of the science and advanced techniques necessary to create long lasting, functional and natural restorations. While it is common to see the phrase “cosmetic dentist”, cosmetic dentistry is not an actual dental specialty and these dentists have not completed a residency program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA. Fewer than 2% of all dentists are prosthodontists, and Dr. Seal has been recognized as a leader in this highly specialized field.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Seal specializes in procedures that restore and replace teeth to look and function as nature intended. These services include porcelain veneers, crowns, fixed bridges, dental implants, dentures, and various types of bonding procedures. All laboratory work is completed in our onsite German-designed laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment. This ensures the highest quality materials are utilized from start to finish in a process highly controlled in our own lab.
A large part of Dr. Seal’s practice is also focused on maintaining your natural teeth and your dental health. These services include regular cleaning and hygiene appointments as well as conservative periodontal maintenance based on your personal oral health needs.
As a patient of Dr. Seal’s, you will receive the highest quality dental treatment available. All procedures performed in his practice are “evidence based”, meaning that only procedures that have scientific backing will be used in your treatment. Dr. Seal recognizes the importance of professional integrity, and will work with you to ensure that your treatment plan is conservative, yet effective. In our practice, you will be treated as we would treat one of our own family members. We are committed to proving the value of your investment.
