Welcome to the office of Dr. Richard Sousa. Our Roslyn Heights dental practice focuses on the needs of the adult dental patient seeking a more comprehensive and sophisticated approach to their dental needs. We have expertise in restorative and implant dentistry with a special emphasis on aesthetics and cosmetic dental procedures. Dr. Sousa was among the first people involved in developing and teaching porcelain veneer techniques. I invite you to spend some time looking around our website, hopefully, you will find it informative.
Our Practice Philosophy
We provide comprehensive care to our patients. This means that virtually all of your care will be done right here in our office. Dr. Sousa and his team have years of experience in multiple disciplines of dentistry. You will not need to worry about being sent from office to office for different treatments, leaving you to wonder who your doctor actually is. In our office, that answer is always clear.
You will get a thorough understanding of your dental issues and what can be done to help you be in optimal dental health. We spend the time to get the whole picture in focus and lay out a care plan that is complete. And whenever treatment is necessary, we will help guide you through your options, explaining each to you so that you can make the best-informed decision for yourself.
A Different Dental Experience
Trends in healthcare are towards high volume patient care. All too often, doctors need to see more patients in less time. This has necessarily led to less personalized doctor-patient relationships and frequently a less than complete understanding of what all of the patients’ issues might be. At East Hills Dental in Roslyn Heights, we have set aside the mass production mindset to focus on what we believe is a better kind of care for our patients. We spend the time to get to know our patients and their needs and are committed as a team to providing a level of excellence in care and service that, these days, is the exception to the rule. Not only do we spend the time to fully analyze any problems, but we also go the extra mile to explain the issues and what the implications might be- as well as discussing solutions and options in a way that makes sense.
Dr. Sousa’s background is in the laboratory field and he has received a Master of Dental Technology certificate, one of very few dentists to hold this title. His exceptional talents and artistry give us a unique advantage when it comes to creating the ultimate in esthetic and functional restorations. Once a course of action is decided, we are able to proceed in a way that few others can. We have a unique dental laboratory right here in the office featuring advanced state of the art technologies. We can produce and customize dental restorations in a way that no commercial lab can.
Just as important is our continual investment in continuing education so that we can keep on the cutting edge of the best of what dentistry has to offer. So if you or anyone you know is looking for a more sophisticated kind of dental care please give us a call, you’ll be glad you did.
