Dr. Rao's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rao "Dr. Lokesh C. Rao graduated from New York University College of Dentistry with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. He completed a general practice residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx where he also served as Chief Resident, overseeing the treatment of twenty-five general practice residents. After working with several of the top world-renowned dentists throughout Manhattan and Westchester, Dr. Rao decided it was time to achieve his vision by opening his own private practice. His goal is to give his patients (both adults and children) a healthy and beautiful smile while ensuring their comfort during the process. He is a skillful and artistic cosmetic dentist, who takes pride in providing his patients with high-quality work for long-lasting smiles. Dr. Rao strives to stay up to date on the cutting edge of technology and new dental treatments by accumulating more than 1000 hours of continuing education that range from esthetic full-mouth rehabilitation to implant placement and prosthetic restoration. Dr. Rao also displays a passion for the biologic nature of dentistry. As a result, he has placed a large emphasis on the health of the products he places in his patients' mouths, and the effects they have on the body as a whole. Although this can be challenging in our modern dental field, he safely removes all toxic material such as mercury and metal based restorations, while replacing broken and disfigured teeth, with esthetic and healthy materials. Dr. Rao's strength lies in the detail, thoughtful care and design he applies to his work. He is meticulous about the intricacies that separate good dentistry from excellent dentistry, and has a calm and affable personality that can put virtually anybody at ease. He is always accessible for any questions or concerns. Furthermore, patients are given follow-up calls within the first 24-36 hours to check on their post-operative care and needs. Dr. Rao currently serves as an Adjunct Clinical Instructor in the Continuing Dental Education program in Implantology at NYU. Furthermore, he is currently partnered up with the director of the Implant CDE program at NYU."
