Roslyn Heights, NY

The practice of Dr. Richard Sousa focuses on the needs of adult dental patients seeking a more comprehensive and sophisticated approach to their dental needs. The doctor and his team are experts in restorative and implant dentistry with a special emphasis on esthetics and cosmetic dental procedures.

Dr. Sousa was one of the first to develop and teach porcelain veneer techniques, as he explains, “My dad started his dental laboratory in our basement when I was only a few years old. I worked as a ceramist all through high school and college and for years after. I went to dental school when I was 30 because I was fascinated by what I was doing and wanted to be even more involved.” Dr. Sousa and his team have years of experience in multiple disciplines of dentistry. You need not worry about being sent from office to office, as all treatments can be done at one location with personalized care. “There are usually many ways to solve a problem or design a smile. The most important thing I can do is to be thorough in my diagnostic and treatment planning work and spend time with the patient so they are comfortable with the decisions we make together.”

The office utilizes state-of-the-art technology including the latest digital x-ray equipment and CAD/CAM systems for digital impressions and same-day restorations. Combining that with their in-house laboratory gives patients a completely unique dental experience. From routine cleanings and exams to implants, complete reconstructions and smile makeovers it’s definitely worth a call.
