The doctors at Associates in Prosthodontics have chosen to specialize in a highly technical area of dentistry. A degree in Prosthodontics requires an additional three years of education, ensuring patients receive the most current and advanced proceedures in restorative and cosmetic dentistry today.

Dr. Attanasi was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska and then worked as a dental research scientist at New York’s Rockefeller University.  Dr. Attanasi determined that while he enjoyed working in the scientific arena, he missed the human connection that comes with direct patient care.

While he enjoyed many aspects of general dentistry, Dr. Attanasi found that he received the most personal satisfaction when he performed complex prosthetic treatment.  Dr. Attanasi decided that he would pursue a specialty degree in Prosthodontics.  He graduated from the University of Michigan’s three-year prosthetic residency program with a Master of Science degree in Prosthodontics.

Dr. Attanasi has been in private practice in Delray Beach, Florida for the past 15 years where he performs all phases of fixed, removable and implant dentistry.
