What is a Prosthodontist?
Put simply, a prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in restorative dentistry. This means Dr. Phelps is a specialist in repairing "broken" teeth and replacing missing teeth, both of which are absolutely crucial if you want a healthy, beautiful smile.
Prosthodontics is one of the eight dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. To become a recognized prosthodontist, Dr. Phelps had to complete three years of post-dental school training and education at an ADA-accredited institution.
A prosthodontist is essentially the architect of your smile restoration. Dr. Phelps works with general dentists, cosmetic dentists and oral surgeons to craft your unique, individualized restorative plan.
To do this, we use advanced technology that provides us with images of unparalleled clarity and precision. Our high-powered digital imaging capabilities make it possible for us to fully plan the extent and location of your dental work. This advanced planning prevents problems before they ever develop and ensures you get the best possible restoration.
Dr. Phelps' advanced prosthodontic training means he possesses a unique understanding of the challenges associated with restorative dentistry. He understands the dynamics at play in your teeth and jaw, and, more importantly, he knows how to successfully navigate those dynamics so that you're left with a beautiful smile.
