Why a Prosthodontist, Not a Cosmetic Dentist?
As a fully qualified Prosthodontist Dr. Karen Kang had had comprehensive training in dental aesthetics throughout her three year graduate program recognized by the American Dental Association as one of the nine dental specialties. By contrast, cosmetic dentistry is not afforded such recognition, with many cosmetic dentists acquiring their training through courses and seminars that usually last a week.
