What is the difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist? A specialist in prosthodontics is a dentist who has successfully completed a formal, advanced education program in prosthodontics that is accredited by the appropriate accrediting body. In the United Kingdom, that body is the General Dental Council, through the Royal College of Surgeons. The training required to become a prosthodontist is through formally structured university/dental hospital programs to give them further skills and knowledge required to plan and manage complex dental problems. They are qualified only after several years of rigorously monitored full time training, practice, examination and critical review. As a result Finlay has a wide and extensive range of techniques and a comprehensive view of the mouth as part of the human body.
