What is a prosthodontist?

Restoring Optimum Appearance and Function to Your Smile

A beautiful smile is important to your health, hygiene, confidence, and self-esteem. At our office, we can help you have the most attractive, natural-looking smile possible. Whether you're a new patient or have visited our office for years, you may or may not know exactly what a surgically trained prosthodontist is. Prosthodontists are dentists who specialize in the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth to their proper form and function.

After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists complete an extra three years of specialized training through a hospital or university-based program accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA). Graduate programs in prosthodontics include classroom lectures, literature reviews, seminars, and laboratory and clinical training in all aspects of dental health and restoration.

A prosthodontist is an expert in restoring your smile using the best dental technology and products, including:

  • Aesthetic and cosmetic treatments
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Complete and removable partials and dentures
  • Dental Implants
  • Veneers

Prosthodontists are masters of complete oral rehabilitation and can treat numerous dental conditions, such as:

  • TMD-jaw joint problems
  • Traumatic injuries to the mouth's structures
  • Congenital or birth anomalies to teeth
  • Snoring and sleep disorders
  • Oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care

A prosthodontist is dedicated to the highest standards of care, technology, and service in the replacement of your teeth and restoration of your beautiful, healthy smile.

Patient Testimonials

It is a pleasure going to the dentist when it is Dr. Pedlar. I know his credentials are A 1 and his diagnosis are accurate and his work is always excellent. I have been a patient of Dr. Larry Pedlar and now Dr. Patrick Pedlar for many years. The offices are pristine and follow all the present day guidelines. The staff are wonderful , caring , efficient and excellent. I always recommend them when asked in my present circumstances at LaSalle retirement home.

-Janice D.

I am delighted with the quality of the service I receive on every visit! Perhaps even more important is the fact I feel truly 'cared for' from the moment I walk into the beautifully appointed, comfortable office and with every person in the practice. Everyone I have introduced to this wonderful health care team has been well treated, and I am very happy to stay with this kind, professional team. Thank you for years as my trusted health partner! I have a wonderful smile as proof of your great skill!

-Laura L.

I trust Dr. Pedlar and his team to provide exceptional care. The advice and treatment I have received are always accurate. I never have to return for the same issue twice. Thank you. I highly recommend this dental practice.

-Lynn C.

So impressed with how well you all have adapted to COVID in re-fitting your offices and procedures. Incredibly professional and thorough but I would expect nothing less from your team, as it's been my experience with the Pedlar group for the past 50 years. PS: Marlene as always did a great job.
