Many patients have broken, decayed, or missing teeth, and they often see a general dentist to seek dentistry treatment.

Dentists can treat these conditions, but prosthodontists specialize in the design, fabrication, and placement of crowns, bridges, and more.

At Ridgewood Dental Associates in Ridgewood, NJ, we have undergone advanced training in prosthodontics to provide the best results. 

What Is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the planning, production, and implementation of artificial teeth. A prosthodontist undergoes advanced education and training, uses the latest techniques and technology, and can treat complex dental issues. We are proud to have two highly qualified prosthodontists on the team at Ridgewood Dental Associates.

Dr. Mark F. Samani

Dr. Samani

Our resident prosthodontist, Mark Samani, is renowned for his skill and knowledge in this dentistry specialty. He completed a prestigious postdoctoral prosthodontic program here in New Jersey and has served as the prosthodontic advisor for a number of dental study clubs. As the son of a prosthodontist, Dr. Samani has long had a passion for helping patients enjoy beautiful, functional smiles through advanced care.

Dr. Jin Ha Joung

Dr. Joung

Dr. Joung received his dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He went on to complete a 5-year intensive combined program in Prosthodontics and Periodontics at UConn, where he earned recognition for excellence from the American College of Prosthodontists. He blends his passion for prosthodontics and cutting-edge dental technology to ensure his patients enjoy the highest standard of care available.

My experience at RDA surpassed exceptional including the work of the welcoming, friendly, patient, professional support staff. Dr. Joung provided sensitivity, patience, and the highest level of expertise while working with me to create a restoration that met my absolute approval. Dentists and professional staff constantly tell me that they are unable to identify which tooth was restored following the implant. I am forever grateful to Dr. Joung and recommend him highly without reservation.

The Benefits of Prosthodontics

Decayed, damaged, or missing teeth can make it difficult to eat or speak properly. Custom prosthodontics such as crowns, bridges, and dentures can restore your oral function and improve your quality of life.

Enhanced Appearance

Prosthodontic restorations can not only improve the function of your smile, but also enhance your appearance for a smile you can't help but share confidently.

Restored Health

Missing or decayed teeth can cause issues such as jawbone loss, infections, and more. Dental treatment and custom prosthodontics can help restore your oral health and maintain it for years to come. 

A Customized Dentistry Approach Designed to Meet Your Needs

Our prosthodontists, Mark Samani and Jin Ha Joung, don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry.

Why Choose a Prosthodontist Over a Dentist?

Inexperience Can Put Your Oral Health at Risk

Dental work completed purely for the sake of aesthetics is bound to fail early. Many of our competitors do quick work that looks nice at first, but when it simply masks underlying dental problems, it won't hold up. In other cases, restorations may be placed sloppily or incorrectly, which can create more problems for your teeth and oral health. In the end, the restorations may not last long, become damaged, or even fall out.

A Specialist Can Preserve Your Smile for Life

When you choose the prosthodontists at our Ridgewood, NJ, office, you can rest assured that quality and patient satisfaction are our top priorities. We focus solely on producing the most durable and longest-lasting results. No matter how simple or complicated your care plan, our experts know how to build a strong smile. With proper at-home care and routine checkups, it is not uncommon for our work to last a lifetime.

Dr. Joung is thorough and I feel confident in the care I'm receiving as he explains things and makes sure to answer all my questions. Really appreciate that there is a separate room where you deal with the financial aspects and next appointments, as opposed to in the general waiting area in front of others like some other offices I've been in.
