A Smile Specialist
One of nine dental specialties recognized by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA)
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating complex dental and facial matters, including the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth with artificial devices. They are highly trained in dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, jaw disorders, and more. It’s not simply about tooth repair, though. Every component in your mouth plays a role in functions such as eating and speaking, as well as being a part of your overall body health. As well as four years in dental school, prosthodontists complete two or three more years of specialty training. A prosthodontist truly understands how to treat your damaged or lost teeth as part of a dynamic, aesthetic smile.
Why see a Prosthodontist?
Advances in the fields of dentistry make it easier than ever to find a full-service dental office, and indeed, general dentists provide a high level of care. However, you may prefer more specialized care for your smile. Just as you’d prefer a specialist to work on your imported sports car, you’ll want a prosthodontist when you need implants, dentures, crowns or more comprehensive treatment.

I cannot even explain how wonderful this place is!! They changed my 16 year old daughters whole life. When nobody else could figure it out Dr. Mursic did!! I will never go anywhere else. HIGHLY recommend.
I had been a patient at Loma Lina University School of Dentistry for four years when I first met you. You said you took my case because it was the most challenging one available and also because you felt bad for me having to spend all this time, not getting my work completed. As challenging as it was, you made this happen. You did what no other Prosthodontist at Loma Linda seemed to be able to do. Thank-you for coming to my rescue! Thank-you for making this happen! You’re a man of your word. I witnessed the tremendous passion, talent, and skill that you possess for your craft. You also have a great “dental chair-side manner”. A great future is open to a man of your talents. Let me know were you’ll be working, I may have to come see you if I need anything done in the future because I know that I can trust the great work that you do.
A very passionate dentist who is very good at what he does. Really takes the time to explain things to you, doesn’t make you feel rushed and recommends what is ultimately best for the patient! Would highly recommend!
I’m someone who has been afraid of going to dentists in the past, but Dr. Mursic and his staff have been wonderful. From crafting a treatment plan to implementing it. So far my journey has been extremely pleasent. If you’re looking for top notch professionalism, look no further.
I am taking time to make sure you are aware how happy I am with my incredible teeth, it’s hard to believe they are way better than my original ones and those were great teeth. After years of wear and tear, literally shredding my teeth with over 45 years of serious nail biting and using my teeth as tools I sought help to fix them because of serious pain to hot and cold with all my front teeth. The outstanding results under your care have made my “tools” into “JEWELS”. I love how I can eat anything I like and have stopped biting my nails because I value your work so highly and wouldn’t want to cause any harm to my beautiful smile.I am over the moon happy with my smile. I especially want to express how I am grateful I am for your empathy and compassion as I faced a few setbacks and personal problems. I really knew you cared about me as a person and I wasn’t just your “patient”.
I highly recommend Zachary for all your dental needs. His Dental services were very complete and professional. Worth traveling from New Brunswick for my dental needs.
For about 6 month I dealt with my jaw locking at least once every three weeks and had to use my fingers to pull it down, popping it very painfully. My regular dentist referred me to Dr. Mursic and I’m so glad he did!
Dr. Mursic was able to explain the mechanics of my issue and developed a comprehensive treatment plan with follow ups every two weeks. They fit me for a mouthguard that didn’t allow me to clench my jaw and after 2 months the clicking in my jaw is greatly reduced, and it no longer locks causing me pain! The staff are wonderful, friendly, and clearly explained costs and handled my insurance submissions. I am so grateful for the awesome team at Durham Prosthodontics, thank you for improving my quality of life and eliminating my pain!
I needed a temporary crown replaced with a permanent crown. Dr Mursic and his entire team were amazing. They made me feel totally comfortable. They explained everything in the process. They have a great sense of humour, and maintain a state-of-the-art facility. Great music, TV, movies…and the best lip balm (smiling). I only wish he could be my primary dentist, but he is a specialist. I had a blast and enjoyed my convos with him and his assistant Lesia! Great team. Great location. Great work. It doesn’t even feel like I have a crown. It looks great and I feel way more confident! Thank you Dr Mursic and team! Happy holidays
