What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth. After completing pre-dental science based degree studies and four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three additional years of specialized training in a Canadian Dental Association (CDA) accredited graduate education program. Prosthodontics is one of the dental specialties recognized by the Canadian Dental Association.
Prosthodontists have extensive laboratory skills and knowledge of materials used to restore and replace teeth. The Canadian Dental Association recognizes prosthodontists as specialists in tooth restoration and replacement. We take great pride in providing our patients with esthetically attractive and natural looking replacement teeth.
