A prosthodontist is a general dentist who has undergone two to three years of additional training beyond dental school in the reconstruction of teeth. The American Dental Association (ADA) recognizes prosthodontics as one of 9 specialties in dental care. Every prosthodontist is also a dentist, but not every dentist is also a prosthodontist. In fact, there are only about 3,500 practicing prosthodontists in the US, according to the ADA. Dr. DuFault is one of the few!
