Maxillofacial Prosthetics

Dr. Gary Horblitt is a maxillofacial prosthodontist, which means he has the expertise to treat patients with severe health problems in the head and neck region—usually due to cancer, surgery, trauma, or birth defects.

Maxillofacial Prosthetics Gives Patients More Reasons To Smile
