Our Dental Specialties
Within dentistry, there are several specialties. A specialty is an area of dentistry that has been formally recognized by the American Dental Association and requires additional education and training. While our dentist and team will do all we can to care for your smile, we may need to refer you to a dental specialist if your case is especially complex to ensure that you achieve optimal results. Based on your needs, we may refer you to:
- An endodontist, who specializes in the study and treatment of the dental pulp. The dental pulp is the innermost layer of the tooth that includes the tooth’s living tissues.
- A periodontist, who focuses on the study and treatment of the periodontal tissues, or the tissues that surround and support the teeth.
- An orthodontist, who diagnoses, prevents, and corrects abnormalities in how the teeth fit together.
- An oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who specializes in surgical treatments to address diseases, injuries, and defects.
