Dr. Rivera-Zayas is a seasoned prosthodontist. Prosthodontists are dentists that have graduated dental school and gone on to complete additional years of specialized education and training in prosthodontics. Some of this training includes the restoration of natural teeth and the replacement of missing teeth using a variety of functional and cosmetic processes.
