After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive 2-3 years of additional training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate specialized education program. A board-certified prosthodontist has completed a four-part written and oral examination given by the American Board of Prosthodontics. It is the highest achievement a prosthodontist can attain. Currently, there are 39 Board Certified Prosthodontists in Illinois. Contrary to popular advertisements, “cosmetic dentistry” is not a recognized specialty by the ADA.
Prosthodontists are experts in coordinating treatment with other dental specialists such as oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, and orthodontists to provide the highest quality of care to their patients. At Kopp Dental our doctors work closely with other specialists to ensure the best outcome for all of our patients. The extensive level of specialist training that prosthodontists have increases the capabilities to provide superior results with implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures and all cosmetic and restorative procedures.
