Regular dentists are equipped to handle most simple dental problems. There are times when a dentist comes along with a difficult complex case. In this instance, the dentist will then refer their patient to a local specialist. In this post, we will cover the differences between a regular dentist and dental specialists.

General Dentists
Approximately 79% of all dentists in the US are general dentists. A general dentist would normally be your primary dental provider. This dentist has earned a degree and earned the title of DDS or DMD. They usually complete three or more years of undergraduate education plus four years of dental school to become a general dentist. This dentist can diagnose and treat most of the common dental issues. These issues include root canals, fillings, crowns, preventive care, bridges, and veneers.

Dental Specialists
There are times when more complicated dental issues arise. Dental specialists are among the smaller number of dentists that can handle focused areas in the dental field. Dental specialists complete dental school as regular dentists. They also receive a DDS or DMD. After completing dental school, specialists choose a primary focus in the dental field and undertake additional schooling and training to become a dental specialist.

What Is The Difference Between a General Dentist and a Dental Specialist?


When you think of a dentist you are usually thinking of a general dentist. General dentistry is equipped to handle most of your dental needs, which can include: dental exams, tooth extractions, dental cleanings, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and root canals.
What about a specialist? Why are they different? A specialist is a dentist who has completed additional training after graduating and becoming a general dentist. They choose a specific area to specialize in and they complete substantial training in order to focus on that particular sector of dentistry.

Types of Dental Specialist Include:

  • Orthodontist
  • Prosthodontist
  • Periodontist
  • Endodontist
  • Oral Surgeons
  • Pediatric Specialists

A general dentist can sometimes perform the same procedures as a specialist. However, there are times when the case can become complex for a general dentist and that is when a specialist is required. If a general dentist determines you are in need of a specialist then they will refer you to the right one.
