Comprehensive, pain-free and digital. The ultimate care for your teeth begins here, with your initial exam and diagnosis.

From your initial exam and diagnosis through every phase of your treatment plan, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry at The MIAMI Institute is the best prosthodontic care you’ll find. On your first visit, you’ll meet with board certified prosthodontist Dr. Todd Barsky and our hygienist, as well as the other Institute team members who will guide you through your care. Your beautiful, healthy and functional smile is our business, you’re in the right place!

Your first visit with us will last approximately two hours, and in that time the following procedures will be completed:

  • Health history review
  • Consultation with Dr. Barsky and the hygienist
  • Initial diagnosis
  • X-rays and diagnostic impressions of your upper and lower jaw
  • A series of photos will be taken (full face, close up, two profiles, upper and lower occlusal)
  • Full mouth periodontal exam
  • Initial diagnosis for treatment
  • Education on oral healthcare
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Cleaning or initial periodontal treatment if needed


The first hour is spent with Dr. Barsky and team members to acquire the necessary diagnostic information. The second hour will be with our hygienist. A subsequent appointment may be needed to complete formulation of a comprehensive treatment plan. Our care balances your dental health needs with the desire for a beautiful aesthetic.
