At The MIAMI Institute, we understand the importance of a beautiful smile and go beyond cosmetic dentistry, offering the best oral care that combines art and science to optimally improve dental health, aesthetics and function. Dr Todd B. Barsky, the only board-certified prosthodontist in Miami, heads the Dental Team at The MIAMI Institute. Dr. Todd Barsky is an expert in creating optimal oral health and aesthetics.
His vision is to offer outstanding dental care using leading-edge procedures while ensuring that patients are comfortable, properly cared for, and relaxed during their visits. He believes that forging a partnership with every patient based on mutual trust and respect is essential to effective treatment. Every patient has a unique smile, set of requirements, and expectations, and he believes that it is his job to listen carefully and consider these facets in order to develop a practicable and individualized treatment plan.
Dr. Barsky received his Bachelor of Science degree from The George Washington University in Washington DC, after which he earned a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Prosthodontists are dentists with advanced specialty training in creating optimal oral health, both in function and appearance including dental implants, dentures, veneers, crowns and teeth whitening.
As with other dentists, prosthodontists complete four years of dental school, obtaining a D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree. Like other dental specialists, prosthodontists receive additional training: three years of formal education in an American Dental Association certified program, which leads to a specialty certificate. Upon completing the advanced training, prosthodontists become board eligible and may take an examination requiring two years or more to complete, to become board certified. Because it is a very challenging and demanding examination, only 30 percent of all prosthodontists become board certified. Dr. Barsky is currently the only board certified prosthodontist in private practice in Miami and he prides himself in performing to the highest standards of his profession.
While any general dentist can call himself a "cosmetic dentist," prosthodontists are specialists trained in examining the entire orofacial complex to achieve an accurate diagnosis and develop an effective, appropriate, and personalized treatment plan. Dr. Barsky is a skilled architect who can design an individualized treatment plan which will restore optimum function and appearance to your smile.
Dr. Barsky is a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontists, a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists, and a member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, South Florida District Dental Association and Academy of Osseointegration.
