At HDS we pride ourselves on our expertise. A prosthodontist’s extensive training provides expertise in restorative treatment above and beyond a general dentist. Prosthodontics is one of the thirteen official dental specialties recognised by the General Dental Council, the UK dental profession’s regulatory body. A prosthodontist has completed an accredited specialist-training programme, usually an additional 3-5 years of dedicated training, which ensures a higher level of expertise in this field. Specialist training also involves knowledge of the other dental specialties, so a patient’s treatment plan can be integrated to ensure the highest level of care.
