Trying to find the right cosmetic dentist for your needs can be difficult because EVERY dentist claims expertise in this area and some even claim board certification. If your looking for a specialist in cosmetic dentistry, you need to be aware that the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty. The only dental specialty with advanced formal training in cosmetic/esthetic dentistry is PROSTHODONTICS. Prosthodontists undergo rigorous training in all aspects of cosmetic dentistry and are capable of blending art with science in producing consistently superior results. In addition to being Board Certified in Prosthodontics, Dr. Stankewitz is also a master ceramist and personally completes the laboratory phases of all smile enhancements in-house. His private practice in the Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza/Memorial City provides a patient centered environment which is unique in todays dollar driven, mass production healthcare market.
