What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Prosthodontics leads the way to beautiful, healthy teeth. The news is out– we’re opening up a new prosthodontics program in August 2017! This is great news for people looking for affordable, specialized treatment. Because we operate out of a dental school, Penn Dental Medicine is able to offer prosthodontic services at deeply discounted prices to our patients. Since many people do not know what the prosthodontics dentistry speciality is or why it’s important, we’ve put together a quick FAQ so that anyone can easily understand what this field is all about. What’s a prosthodontist, anyway? A prosthodontist deals in aesthetic (cosmetic) dentistry, which includes tooth restoration and replacement. Your prosthodontist’s mission is to restore optimal appearance and functioning to your smile.

They have an advanced education, giving them a knowledge base superior to the average dentist.  Most prosthodontists have earned a doctorate in dentistry, a Master’s in prosthetic dentistry, and have completed three additional years of specialty training in prosthodontics after finishing dental school.
