What Is a Prosthodontist?

A Prosthodontist is a dentist who has received an additional 2-3 years of advanced training after completing dental school. This specialized training is completed through an ADA-accredited Prosthodontic Certification program, such as the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Here, Prosthodontists are trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions, while restoring optimum function and esthetics to one’s smile. A Prosthodontist specializes in the diagnosis, restoration, and replacement of missing or damaged teeth and can restore oral function through the placement of restorations or prostheses (dentures, crowns, implants, etc.). Prosthodontics (also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry) is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA).
