What is a Specialist?
A specialist is a qualified dentist that has undertaken many additional years of formal postgraduate education, teaching, research and training in a chosen discipline of dentistry. Having completed this intense and long training programme, the dentist is granted a certificate in the speciality and is then registered as a specialist within that discipline. This means that complex dental diagnosis and treatment can be carried out by this dentist, this is work that is beyond the knowledge and skill levels of a general dentist. As the level of expertise, diagnostic skills and technical ability increases during this training programme, even general dental treatment is carried out at a higher standard. Specialists are considered to be the best at what they do.
General dentists will refer complex and challenging dental treatment which they are not capable of tackling to a specialist they know and trust so that the patient can benefit from the best standards of diagnostic and dental care.
The additional training, and higher level of diagnostic and technical expertise means specialist fees are in general more than generalists, but this is negated by the fact that the quality of the work is superior and when looked after can provide a longer and better service.
