General dentistry is a catch phrase that includes all aspects of dentistry. This includes restorative dentistry, implants, extractions, root canals, laser dentistry, etc.
Some dentists elect to receive additional training beyond dental school and become more proficient and excellent in general dentistry. AEGD and GPR are abbreviations for Advanced Education in General Dentistry and General Practice Residency. These programs are one year in duration with little to no income. Several of our dentists have completed such programs and have an increased set of skills.
And there are some dentists that choose to become specialists in just one aspect of dentistry, such as an orthodontist, that specializes in straightening teeth or an endodontist that does root canal therapy.
The majority of the dentists at Pony Express are general dentists. Our general dentists in Draper have additional training beyond dental school and offer “specialty services” even though they are not specialists. For example, Dr. Tornow and Dr. DeLoach offer IV sedation and removal of impacted wisdom teeth even though they are not oral surgeons (Dr. Tornow has completed over 8,000 IV sedation cases since 2001.)
