Dr. Moussa's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Moussa "Dr. Joseph Moussa originally graduated from Damascus University College of Dentistry; the oldest and most prestigious University of it's kind in 1993. He served two years as a Lieutenant in the Army performing Dentistry in the clinics and hospitals. He then enjoyed a very successful practice abroad for seven years, but he felt as if something was missing. He fell in love with a branch of Dentistry that was up and coming, he craved to know more about implants and the science of Implantology. He chose to leave his home to learn more about the exciting field of Implantology and Dentistry here in America. He was immediately accepted to the very difficult curriculum of New York University Dental School to hone his skills and to satisfy his need to know more about implants and Cosmetic Dentistry. He graduated in May of 2003 at New York University. His professors were so impressed with his skills and desire to learn, they offered him the position of Associate Professor of Implantology in the post-graduate program of New York University Dental School. Dr. Moussa not only enjoys Implantology, he has dedicated many hours to training in one of the most prestigious programs on the east coast for Esthetic Dentistry. He spent an additional year of didactic and clinical training at the Rosenthal Institute in Manhattan, NY to perfect his skills in Esthetic Dentistry. This training includes porcelain veneers, and full porcelain restorations. His training and desire to perform the best Dentistry possible, drives him to continue to stay involved with the University and to increase his dental knowledge with many continuing education courses."
