One of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA), Prosthodontics (pros-tho-don’-tics) is dedicated to the restoration and enhancement of teeth. After completing four years at the University of Pennsylvania Dental School, Dr. Christian Silvaggio received three additional years of specialized Prosthodontic training at one of the top ranked accredited graduate programs in the United States, The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He then completed the rigorous requirements to become Board Certified in Prosthodontics. You can trust that Dr. Silvaggio is uniquely qualified in all aspects of cosmeticrestorative, and implant dentistry. Extensive training and experience provides him with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements. You can also trust that everyone at Silvaggio Prosthodontics will exceed your expectations when it comes to your specific dental needs.

While Dr. Silvaggio’s credentials are impressive, our patients rave about how he treats them. Just take a look at some of our testimonials to see for yourself. Serving as the “architect” of a dental treatment plan, Dr. Silvaggio collaborates with general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental and oral health concerns.
