Prosthodontics is an ADA-recognized specialty that requires additional training related to oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients. Prosthodontists receive an extra 3 years of specialized training after dental school.

Board Certified Prosthodontists are prosthodontists that have gone on to pass extensive examinations by the American Board of Prosthodontics. This examination process involves several examinations over a period of years.

Less than half of 1% of dentists in the U.S. are Board Certified Prosthodontists.

ABP Diplomates are the top in their field, teaching other prosthodontists by presenting scientific lectures and publishing articles. Only Board Certified Prosthodontists can use the title “Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics,” and “Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists.” Only about 20% of practicing prosthodontists are Board Certified.

Why See a Board Certified Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics (also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry) is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Prosthodontists specialize in the diagnosis, restoration, and replacement of missing teeth. Prosthodontists can restore oral function through the placement of restorations or prostheses (dentures, crowns, implants, etc.).

Extensive training and experience give prosthodontists a unique understanding of restoring the dynamics of a smile and healthy mouth with the creation of tooth prostheses. Becoming a prosthodontist requires an additional three years of specialty training after obtaining a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree or DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) . 
This specialized training must be completed at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic education program.
