A General Dentist, a Prosthodontist, and a Periodontist Walk Into a Dental Office

Posted on: August 26th, 2022 | Categories: Uncategorized

The title of this blog post is not the setup of a joke but rather a description of Natick Dental Health. This dental office was founded on the idea of meeting almost all of MetroWest’s dental patients needs in one place. By having a general dentist and two dental specialists in one office, almost any dental need a patient has can be addressed. Let’s have a look at the role each dentist plays:
The General Dentist – Dr. Upadhyay is perhaps the most recognizable face in the practice. She meets many of the patients and identifies any dental issues they may have. With a over a decade of experience in dentistry and a Boston Magazine ‘Top Dentist’ award under her belt, she can handle most restorative situations that the dental patients of MetroWest face. If there’s any specialized situation she can’t handle she will still be in charge of overseeing and directing the treatment, looking out for the best possible outcome for her patients.
The Prosthodontist – Dr. Kang is the prosthodontist at Natick Dental Health. As a prosthodontist, he has a similar role as the general dentist, identifying dental issues that need to be addressed for patients coming in from Natick, Framingham, and other nearby towns. But his specialized training as a prosthodontist means that he has additional years of schooling and can advise and treat in cases that are more complex and involve the replacement of multiple teeth.
The Periodontist – Last but not least, we have Dr. Litwin, the periodontist at Natick Dental Health. As a periodontist, Dr. Litwin has specialized knowledge of the gums and dental treatments that are associated with them. This means that if The prosthodontist or general dentist are noticing signs of gum disease or want a dental implant placed they may refer the patient to the periodontist. But since all three doctors are under one roof the transition is easy for the patient and communication between the doctors is seamless.

If you’re looking for a dental office near you in Natick or Framingham, we hope you consider the dental team at Natick Dental Health and the diversity in experience, perspective, and background that they bring. The dentists will gladly welcome you for a dental consultation in order to address your needs.
