WHY SEE A SPECIALIST?

Dentistry can be quite challenging and dental school only prepares you for the basics of general dentistry. If dentists wish to provide their patients with complicated dental care such as dental implants, or cosmetic dental care, it takes extensive continuing education to be able to gain the skills and knowledge base.

Dental Specialists have taken 2-3 years of University or Hospital based training and must pass a licensing board examination in order be registered as a certified dental specialist.

Does it cost more than general dentists?
