Specialties exist for most fields of healthcare to best serve our needs. Our mouths have a grand total of 32 adult teeth. Believe it or not, dentistry has about 5 main specialties for just your mouth! All specialists are trained differently and focus on just a limited number of procedures so that outcomes can be more predictable and successful. In other words, if your general dentist is doing all your procedures by themselves, see it as a red flag. Simply put, would you have your plumber do your electrical work? Would you have your gardener do painting and drywall? The mouth is delicate and the right specialist needs to be chosen carefully. Consider your general dentist as your handyman and general contractor and have them quarterback your mouth. Our office offers specialties for you as we collaborate as a team of dentists to get your smile right. Let’s take a closer look at each specialty.
