About the Doctor

Dr. Robert J. Meisner DDS, FASO

Dr. Robert Meisner was born in Rochester, NY and currently resides in West Falls with his wife, Karin.  People, caring and Medicine have always been part of his life. His father was a minister responsible for many congregations throughout Middle and Western NY, Northern Pennsylvania and Western Ohio. His mother was a nurse and a “preacher’s wife”.

Dr. Meisner’s wife has an RN, LSW and is currently a psycho-therapist in Orchard Park. His son Robert is a Harvard trained MD in Boston Mass, and his daughter Kim is a Veterinary Doctor in East Aurora.  His professional passion has been and remains to be Comprehensive Dentistry.  Immediately upon graduation from the University at Buffalo School of Dentistry in 1974 and his residency at ECMC in 1975, he became dedicated to finding a better way to help people have a healthy and beautiful smile. He became accomplished in various aspects of Advanced Dentistry including Comprehensive Reconstruction, Smile Design and Cosmetics, Temporomandibular Joint Therapy and Advanced Diagnosis and Treatment Planning. This led him to search around the country for doctors involved in lmplant Dentistry which was in its infancy at that time.

Numerous courses throughout the years have continued that deep commitment to lmplant Dentistry from its very beginnings. Dr. Meisner is known for having introduced Dental lmplants and many other new techniques to the general public with his many appearances on WKBW’s

AM Buffalo as their expert dentist. Host, Cindy Abbott, once said, Dr. Meisner has de-mystified dentistry for thousands”.

Dr. Meisner’s passion for helping people with lmplant Dentistry has provided a unique practice setting for WNY.  He is one of the very first to offer complete implant reconstruction, involving both the surgical and the restorative phases of treatment since 1980. To this day there are very few practices in which the doctor is expert in both implant surgery and important restorative.  That means one place, one doctor for all treatment. His practice is founded upon relationship based care, great communication, and putting the patients’ needs and wants first in all treatment decisions. His logo is “Expert Care, Extraordinary Results” and is reflected in the way things are done in his office.

Dr. Meisner has also spent much of his time doing volunteer work in lndia and Africa, as well as many locales throughout the US.

His second passion in a long list of them is Music. He performs as a soloist and conductor with several concert choirs and orchestras in various venues throughout the North East.

Combining many years of clinical experience, constant implementation of cutting edge techniques, and a long term “seasoned” team has created an unmatched environment in which people can achieve their goals of a stable, health, beautiful smile.
