What Is A Prosthodon­tist?

A Prosthodon­tist is a dental specialist who has completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodon­tic graduate program. Dr. Smith completed her training in prosthodon­tics at UCLA, plus an additional residency year learning to make intricate oral and facial prosthetic­s.


The best thing a clinician can do is listen to her patients. Only then can she provide a plan that is tailor-made for those unique needs and goals. Through careful planning, prosthodon­tists offer an extremely high level of care to patients with complex or cosmetic dental needs.


Prosthodon­tists are highly trained in stateof-the-art techniques and procedures for treating many diverse and complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics. Combining these techniques with the best materials and technology available is key to providing a lasting dental restoratio­n.

Dr. Andrea Smith received her Bachelor of Science degree in Pre-Medicine from Penn State University where she graduated as Class Valedictor­ian of the Eberly College of Science. She then attended the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in New York City, where she again graduated as Class Valedictor­ian with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.

Upon her graduation from Columbia, Dr. Smith was presented with the Van Woert Award for Highest Academic and Clinical Achievemen­t, the Award for Divisional Excellence in Prosthodon­tics, the Award for Divisional Excellence in Periodonti­cs, the Award for Divisional Excellence in Oral Radiology, and the overall Highest Academic Achievemen­t Award. Dr. Smith is one of only 350 Maxillofac­ial Prosthodon­tists worldwide. She specialize­s in dental implant restoratio­ns, crowns, bridges,

dentures, cosmetic dentistry, and full arch implant prosthesis such as Teeth-in-a-Day or All-On-4.

At Berks Prosthodon­tics she sees patients with a wide variety of dental concerns, such as broken or missing teeth, uncomforta­ble dentures, extensive tooth wear, or dissatisfa­ction with the appearance of their smile.

More than 100 area dentists, oral surgeons and other dental specialist­s trust her to handle their patients’ complex or cosmetic dental needs, from a single perfect teeth to state-of-the-art full mouth reconstruc­tion.
