Most people don't think about the branches of dentistry until our dentist refers us to one. We believe that our regular dentist can cure all of our dental issues, but that's not always the case.
Similar to medicine, dentistry also has its own set of specialists. While a general dentist is knowledgeable enough to address most basic dental issues, they may not be qualified to treat the more complex ones. This is when they may refer you to a specialist.
A dental specialist takes 2 to 3 years of specialty training after dental school to become qualified enough for the job. Depending on your needs and dental issue, your dentist will likely refer you to one of the following specialists.
If you aren't sure whether you need to visit a general dentist or a specialist and live in Windsor, Greeley, Eaton, Ault, Fort Collins, or Pierce, head over to Severance Dental for a consultation today.
