With their advanced residency training and our state-of-the-art technology, our talented doctors successfully treat some of the most difficult surgical, full-mouth restorative and dental implant cases. Our doctors all take pride in providing the highest quality specialty care for patients all in one convenient office location at either our Jacksonville or Orange Park office locations. 

Dr. Matthew Nawrocki is our American Dental Association accredited Prosthodontist who practices the full scope of prosthodontics and implant dentistry. After completing his dental training, he completed his residency training in prosthodontics at the University Of Florida. A Prosthodontist is one of the nine recognized dental specialties and spends 3-4 years of additional formal training in a hospital based accredited program beyond that of dental school. Prosthodontists are responsible for the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth and are considered the “quarterback” of the dental team, collaborating with general dentists, dental specialists, health professionals, and laboratory technicians to restore optimum appearance and function to your smile. Among the various treatments that Prosthodontists provide are the following: esthetics/cosmetics, crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, snoring, sleep disorders, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care. 

Dr. Richard Aguila is our Board Certified Periodontist who practices the full scope of periodontics and implant dentistry. After dental school, he completed his residency training in periodontics and dental implant surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina. A periodontist completes three additional years of residency training and is one of the nine recognized dental specialties by the American Dental Association. Periodontists are specialists in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the supporting structures (gum tissue and bone) around the teeth and the surgical placement and maintenance of dental implants. Dr. Aguila’s areas of expertise include both traditional and minimally invasive laser assisted periodontal surgery, all aspects of dental implant surgery including advanced bone grafting and sinus grafting, cosmetic periodontal plastic surgery for smile enhancement (gum grafts and gum lifts) and oral and intravenous conscious sedation.
