What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth; they make smiles look beautiful and function the way they should!
After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.
Many like to think of a prosthodontist as the "quarterback" of a dental treatment plan. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental needs.
