Prosthodontics

A Prosthodontist is a dentist specialized in the field of Prosthodontics, one of nine dental specialties recognized by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) and the American Dental Association(ADA). The Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC) reviews and accredits the education programs in the nine dental specialties in Canada.

Accreditation is a process by which CDAC recognizes dental and allied dental education programs - as well as health facility dental services - as having met nationally-determined requirements or standards, as established by CDAC. The nine recognized specialties are Dental Public Health, Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Oral Medicine and Pathology, Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology, Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.

Prosthodontists, in addition to their basic dental education, have to successfully complete a rigorous advanced postdoctoral educational program in Prosthodontics accredited by the CDA/ADA. This in-depth additional education provides Prosthodontists not only with enhanced knowledge and skills in their specialty but also enables them to interact with researchers as well as with clinical experts in other dental/medical fields. Effective communication with a team of experts provides Prosthodontists with a broad insight in diagnosing and solving oral health problems.
