What is a Dental Specialist?
A registered Dental Specialist is a dental professional who has completed a formal, university-based, post-graduate qualification in addition to their General Dentistry degree.
A Dental Specialist is an expert in their field with a serious passion and dedication to their chosen specialty; they are armed with a wide range of advanced knowledge, equipment and techniques to ensure the very best care for you. The average post-graduate Dental Specialist degree requires a minimum of three years, or 5000+ hours, of full time study and research. This is followed by a life-time commitment to specialty-specific training and education to reach the highest standards in a focused area of dental care.
These skill and education standards must be maintained for a Dental Specialist to continue their registration with the Dental Board of Australia.
