About Sonick, Michael

DRS. MICHAEL SONICK and RUI MA offer their patients personalized, state-of-the-art treatment to restore their health, function, and confidence. Each patient is treated with compassion and meticulous care and is an active force in tailoring treatment to meet her or his particular needs. Drs. Sonick and Ma practice at the highest level of specialty dentistry, making the most of modern tech (lasers, growth factors, genetic testing, 3-D x-rays, digital scanning) and well-proven methods to heal periodontal disease with minimal to no pain and restore missing teeth with Dental implants. They emphasize whole-body therapy, especially as oral infections may contribute to heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, cancer, lung disease, and immune disorders.

Dr. Michael Sonick is a world-recognized periodontal and Dental implant surgeon with a doctorate from UConn School of Dental Medicine and a degree in periodontics from Emory University. He trained in implant dentistry at Gothenburg, Sweden’s Branemark Clinic and Harvard University.

Having successfully placed more than 10,000 implants, Dr. Sonick uses advanced technologies to regenerate bone and soft tissue, restoring patients to optimal health. He regularly teaches at NYU and at UConn. Co-editor of Implant Site Development, a textbook on implant surgery, he is a sought-after lecturer nationally and abroad. He volunteers to treat indigent patients globally.

Dr. Sonick recalls, “At age eight, I had a terrible bike accident and lost my front teeth and fractured my jaw, which required years of Dental reconstruction….I do everything possible to treat [patients] as I would like to be treated, with dignity, respect, and up to date care in a pain-free, comfortable environment.”
