About Smile Design Specialist

Richard A. Ekstein, DMD, FACP

As a Board Certified Prosthodontist, I am a full-service dentist who specializes in Cosmetic, Reconstructive and Implant Dentistry. As a sole practitioner, my practice functions differently than corporate dental offices. It’s a difference I want everyone to experience.

At Smile Design Specialist YOU are special! We treat every one of our patients with deep compassion and respect. When you visit us for dental care my staff and I will make you comfortable, keep you well-informed, and deliver you the highest quality of dental care available anywhere. That’s my commitment to you!

"Invisalign is the best investment I have ever made for myself. It was simple, quick and painless and the result was an enormous improvement in my self-esteem. Dr. Ekstein and his staff are knowledgeable, efficient and caring. My whole family got orthodontic treatment from Dr. Ekstein and the results are nothing short of amazing."

"I got Invisalign invisible braces with Dr. Ekstein last year. I had a big gap between my front teeth and a few crooked teeth on the bottom, but I was surprised at how quickly my teeth were straightened. I will be smiling confidently from now on. Thanks again for my straight teeth Dr. Ekstein!"
