Our doctors, Dr. Bernard Segall and Dr. Bruno Sharp, have the specialized training and experience necessary to handle all cases.
As prosthodontists, they are specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth, today’s architects of a dental treatment plan and heralded as “the plastic surgeons of dentistry.”
Extended education, experience, and rigorous training in an American Dental Association accredited graduate education program, provide Dr. Sharp and his staff with the special skills to understand and manipulate the dynamics of the smile. Their specialized training also includes the preservation of a healthy smile, the art of creating tooth replacement and treatment of the temporomandibular joint.
The prosthodontists at PDSF also help patients by restoring the full use of teeth damaged by nightly grinding, decay or nerve damage, traumatic injuries, gum disease loss of jawbone due to disease or birth defects, aging and bone shrinkage, oral cancer reconstruction, and continuing care.
For these treatment needs, Dr. Sharp (Coconut Grove Dentist) and Dr. Segall provide the necessary complex care management and supervision, as well as follow-up care. Our Coconut Grove dental office is also equipped with the latest technology, including a new 3D and digital radiograph, and many up-to-date types of equipment to enhance our patient’s visits and provide the best service possible.
