Different types of dentists

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Office
Different types of dentistsWhen you come to our dental practice, you will find different dental experts each specializing in a specific field. It is always important to find effective solutions, and this starts with getting treatment from a specialist. We have different specialists at our dental clinic including general dentists, pediatric dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons, and prosthodontists. You can receive treatment from several specialists to ensure that you get an effective and lasting solution for your unique condition.

General Dentists

During your regular dental visits, you are likely to receive care from a general dentist. They deal with regular dental cleanings and exams. They refer you to more specialized dentists when they feel it is necessary.

Pediatric Dentists

These specialize in dental care and treatment for youth and children. They have extra training over a General Dentist.


These are specialized dentists who treat jaw and teeth alignment issues. They use devices such as retainers, braces, and wires.


Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the treatment of gum disease. A general dentist can prevent gum disease from starting, but a periodontist will offer treatment caused by advanced gum disease.


These are specialized in the treatment of conditions affecting the root of your teeth. They perform procedures such as root canal treatment.

Oral Surgeons

These are highly specialized experts who can perform surgery to treat issues related to jaws and teeth. They can also work closely with Ear, Nose, and Throat specialists (ENTs).


They repair jawbones and teeth. They are also skilled in providing cosmetic dentistry which improves the appearance of teeth such as veneers and teeth whitening.

Visit our clinic to receive treatment from our team of well-trained experts. Call us to book an appointment or talk to one of our specialists to find an effective solution and treatment.
