“I chose dentistry because I liked being creative and helping people. The specialty of prosthodontics allows me to practice dentistry at the highest level and have the expertise to handle the most challenging cases. ” – Dr. Barry Kaplan
Dr. Barry Kaplan is our Prosthodontist at Great Neck Dental Associates. He specializes in treating and handling all aspects of tooth replacement and related jaw structures, with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment planning.
As a young child, Dr. Kaplan worked in his father’s dental office doing lab work. He grew fond of helping people while using his hands and being creative.

Dr. Kaplan often uses cutting edge grafting procedures to rebuild bone where necessary to enhance the functional and aesthetic outcomes.
