Meet Our Prosthodontist, Dr. Lisa Reid
Dr. Lisa Reid is a highly skilled prosthodontist and a valuable member of the team at Brooklyn Heights Dental®. She is an accomplished professional, with years of experience providing optimal restorative dentistry solutions for patients with missing teeth. Dr. Reid joined our Brooklyn Heights, NY, practice in 2009, and has since played a key role in many of our restorative dentistry cases.
What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who focuses specifically on repairing damaged teeth, as well as the replacement of missing teeth with prosthetic restorations. Like other prosthodontists, Dr. Reid can perform all general dental services, but offers specific expertise in teeth replacement with dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.
Dr. Reid has a special interest in prosthetics retained by dental implants. With extensive experience in the areas of implant, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry, she is committed to utilizing an evidence-based approach to deliver outstanding care to her patients.
At Brooklyn Heights Dental®, Dr. Reid works together with Dr. Eugene Stanislaus to treat patients who have loose or missing teeth. Some patients may have an existing dental appliance that is proving ineffective and problematic. With a combined interest in providing patients with enhanced aesthetics and optimal dental function, Dr. Reid and Dr. Stanislaus work together to create a treatment plan for the placement and restoration of Dental Implants. Implant restorations can be fixed and removable restorations.
At your initial consultation with Dr. Reid, she will use our advanced technology to conduct a comprehensive exam, then create a custom treatment recommendation. She works with patients with varying needs and strives to provide lifelike, long-lasting solutions. In some cases, Dr. Reid may recommend a restoration created with our in-house CEREC® technology, which allows patients to receive same-day restorations.
Education and Training
Outside of our practice, Dr. Reid is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics at the New York University College of Dentistry. She regularly shares her expertise with her dental peers, serving as a guest lecturer for topics related to implant-supported restorations and restorative dentistry treatment planning.
Dr. Reid greatly enjoys her experience working with local patients, guiding them through the process of regaining improved oral health and a beautiful, fully functional smile.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree and Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Reid completed a three-year residency in postgraduate prosthodontics at the University of Iowa. She was then asked to join the faculty of the university as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Dentistry. At the same time, she maintained an active private practice serving restorative dentistry patients.
Dr. Reid joined Brooklyn Heights Dental® after relocating to the Northeast to be closer to her family. Today, she greatly enjoys her experience working with local patients, guiding them through the process of regaining good oral health and a beautiful, fully functional smile.
