Dr. Lokesh Rao
Dr. Lokesh Rao graduated from New York University College of Dentistry with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. He completed a general practice residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx where he also served as Chief Resident, overseeing the treatment of twenty-five general practice residents. Dr. Rao spent the last 5 years working in private practice in Manhattan and Southern Westchester County. He strives to stay up to date on the cutting edge of technology and new dental treatments by accumulating more than 700 hours of continuing education that range from esthetic full-mouth rehabilitation to implant placement and prosthetic restoration.
Dr. Rao’s goal is to give his patients (both adults and children) a healthy and beautiful smile while ensuring their comfort during the process. He is a skillful and artistic cosmetic dentist, who takes pride in providing his patients with high-quality work for long-lasting smiles. Dr. Rao also displays a passion for the biologic nature of dentistry. As a result, he has placed a large emphasis on the health of the products he places in his patients' mouths, and the effects they have on the body as a whole. Although this can be challenging in our modern dental field, he safely removes all toxic material such as mercury and metal based restorations, while replacing broken and disfigured teeth, with esthetic and healthy materials.
Dr. Rao's strength lies in the detail he applies to his work. He is meticulous about the intricacies that separate good dentistry from excellent dentistry. Just ask any of the patients he has treated, they will say that the thoughtful care he puts into his restorations is what sets him apart from the rest.
