As a maxillofacial prosthodontist, Dr. Stuart Dexter specializes in helping patients that require facial and oral prosthetics. Many individuals, through birth defects or external trauma, lose basic functionality of their jaws — and faces overall — and Dr. Dexter is able to restore their ability to swallow, speak, and chew. As Dr. Dexter works with his patients, he will also confer with other healthcare professionals to ensure they are receiving the proper comprehensive care that is required to regain full functionality.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
In effort to control the spread of COVID-19 a Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP) system has been installed in the office to reduce the percent of bacteria, viruses and mold in the air and on surfaces. This method has been proven in reduction of microbes in occupied spaces. DHP has been effective against every species of microbe on which it has been tested.
As concerns arise from how we prepare to fight this pandemic together within the community we are making changes within. We are advising patients to call when they arrive and wait in their cars until we are ready for them. This will diminish the number of people sitting in the waiting room and allows us to further disinfect the office adequately to keep everyone safe.
What is a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD), and more.
