The Benefits of Going to a PRO

Prosthodontists must complete an extra three years of intense, formal training in addition to  dental school - in an accredited training institution. If you are seeking cosmetic or reconstructive dental work, you should do research before making a decision in order to ensure proper care. As ADA recognized specialists, Prosthodontists are qualified to offer care in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, such as:
