Dr. Greg Seal proudly introduces Dr. Luciano Retana to the practice.

Dr. Retana is originally from Italy where his family currently lives in the Piedmont area. As a young adult, he grew up in Argentina, where he completed dental school and a subsequent residency in Prosthodontics. He practiced several years in Costa Rica before moving to the United States, where he completed a second three-year Prosthodontics residency at LSU, one of the foremost programs. During that time, he also became a Certified Dental Technician. Currently, Dr. Retana has been practicing and lecturing nationwide on techniques he developed. At 40 years of age, Dr. Retana is one of the most highly sought after Prosthodontists for his knowledge of digital laboratory technology and his success at being an early adopter of the most progressive new techniques in the field.

Dr. Retana, his wife, and their two children are relocating to Dallas where he is joining Dr. Seal’s practice as a partner. Dr. Seal himself relocated to Dallas at the same age. The two will work closely together to provide the best quality care that Dr. Seal’s practice is known for. Like Dr. Seal, Dr. Retana is not only gifted but compassionate and kind.
