Don’t be fooled by general dentists who claim to be periodontal and implant restoration experts. Finding the right tooth restoration method to rebuild your smile takes the experience of a specialist.
Dr. Jonathan Richter: Dual-Trained Integrative Periodontist, Prosthodontist, and Dental Implant Expert
Meet Dr. Jonathan Richter, a skilled dual-trained holistic periodontist (gum disease specialist), prosthodontist (an expert in restoring teeth), and an expert in implant dentistry. He is one of only a few in the tri-state area. He received his degree at NYU College of Dentistry and studied three additional years at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Perio/Prosth Program, through which he earned a degree in periodontics and implantology, periodontal prosthesis, and fixed prosthodontics.
As both an integrative periodontist and prosthodontist, Dr. Richter believes in a total preventive wellness approach to a healthy mouth and body that includes prevention, integrative dental wellness, and maintenance.
Unlike most practitioners, Dr. Richter believes that all measures should be taken to save the natural tooth and has the ability to save most teeth that others would extract. As an integrative practitioner, he uses a holistic “natural” approach to periodontics, general, cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry.
He follows the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology) protocol for the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings. His office environment and practices are consistently reviewed and updated as needed to provide a safe, healthy space for his patients — especially those with multiple chemical sensitivities, chronic diseases, and environmental illnesses.
