Dr. Richard Rasmussen,

United States

Richard A. Rasmussen, Jr, D.D.S, graduated from the University of Buffalo School of Dentistry and then the University of Alabama with specialization in Periodontology. He trained in the 1980’s with Professor P.I. Brånemark and later with Professor Anders Tjellstrom in the treatment of patients with dental implants and extra oral implants.

In 1991 he wrote the textbook “The Brånemark System of Oral Reconstruction” which Professor Brånemark wrote the foreword to.

He holds faculty appointments with the University of Florida and University of Alabama department of Periodontology.

Since 1982 Dr. Rasmussen has incorporated implants as a major component of his practice which gives him a unique perspective of 40 years of real world experience in a private practice setting. He has had the opportunity to work with every major implant system and for the past 15 years has chosen Neoss as his implant of choice given the predictability, versatility, soft tissue response and simplicity of the system.
