An Expert in Periodontics and Dental Implants
Dr. Barabas graduated from the University of Notre Dame, where he majored in economics. He then completed his doctoral education at the New York University College of Dentistry.
After dental school, he entered an intensive General Practice Residency at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ, where he was exposed to a wide array of pathology, trauma, and complex restorations.
Dr. Barabas elected to further his dental education in the field of periodontics and implantology at the University Of Texas Health Sciences Center School of Dentistry in Houston, TX. He was selected to attend the Raul Caffesse Endowed Scholarship.
Education and Experience
At the University of Texas, Dr. Barabas was trained in the use of hard and soft tissue lasers, CBCT guided implant surgery, IV sedation, and piezosurgery for cases from implant placement to lateral window sinus lifts.
Dr. Barabas was also trained and certified to offer patients the Wilckodontics ® Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics procedure.
Additionally, he earned a Master of Science in Dentistry, completing coursework and a thesis entitled “Resistance to Six Common Antibiotics in a Patient Population,” in which he obtained plaque samples from patients suffering from untreated severe, generalized, chronic periodontitis, cultured the individual bacteria and identified them through DNA sequencing, and completed the gene analysis to identify antibiotic resistance patterns in his patient population.
