Robert A. Horowitz, DDS

Dr. Robert A. Horowitz graduated from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1982 having concentrated in periodontics and fixed prosthodontics. After completion of a one-year general practice residency, Dr. Horowitz finished a 2 year specialty training program in periodontics at New York University and the Manhattan VA Hospital. He began placing dental implants after taking implant surgery courses nationally and internationally in 1985. In 1996, Dr. Horowitz completed a 2 year fellowship program in Implant Surgery at New York University concentrating in bone grafting procedures. As a Clinical Assistant Professor in the departments of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at New York University College of Dentistry, he teaches and conducts research in bone grafting. He is also on faculty and conducts research in the departments of Biomaterials and Biomimetics and Oral Diagnosis at NYU. Dr. Horowitz has lectured and published nationally and internationally. He has performed research in bone grafting, extraction socket augmentation and the placement of dental implants in areas of limited available bone. Current research includes prospective, multi-center, international studies on a number of bone replacement materials.

Dr. Horowitz is currently conducting research on bone graft materials and growth factors for use in periodontology, extraction socket therapy and implant dentistry. Some of the growth factors increase the speed and predictability of new bone attaching to the root surface in a periodontal lesion. Other growth factors improve the ingrowth of vital bone in the area of a recent tooth extraction or in the part of the jaw where a significant amount of bone has been lost due to periodontal disease, trauma or prior extractions.

Dr. Horowitz is available to lecture to national and international groups on many topics including Increasing Case Acceptance Through Digital Technology, Extraction Environment Enhancement, Periodontal Therapy – Surgical and Non-Surgical Alternatives, Laser Enhanced Periodontal Therapy, Piezosurgery to Improve Predictability of Surgical Treatment and Predictable Bone Regeneration. Some of these topics include predictable methods to maintain bone after teeth are extracted and new periodontal regenerative processes to maintain and improve the bone levels around teeth with bone loss.
