Understanding the Universe of Dentistry

The universe of dentistry includes general dentists and dental specialists that many people are either unaware of or they may have heard the terminology but don't really know what it means. For example, do you know the difference between a prosthodontist, pedodontist, and an endodontist*? If not, they're worth knowing.

(*A prosthodontist specializes in crowns and bridgework, a pediatric dentist specializes in dentistry for children, and an endodontist is a root canal specialist.)
