What Are the Different Types of Dental Specialists?

Dentistry is a diverse profession and has made large strides in recent years. There are family dentists, periodontists, orthodontists, and oral surgeons. All of these dentists have different speicalities, some of which are more specialized than others. A dentist like Dr. Julie Liberman would be your first line of defense - you go to her for general dental concerns and then, if needed, you would be referred to a specialist who can help your specific needs.

General Dentistry

Dr. Liberman at Great Neck Dental Care is a general dentist. You can see Dr. Liberman for general concerns - such as an annual check-up or questions about your overall dental health. Dr. Liberman and her staff can provide you with a comprehensive oral examination and a thorough cleaning.

However, Dr. Liberman is more than a general dentist - she is also a cosmetic dentist and a restorative dentist

Cosmetic Dentistry

In addition to being a general dentist, Dr. Liberman can also provide cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is interested in improving the appearance of a person’s teeth and smile. Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures that Great Neck Dental Care can provide you with are Invisalign, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and a smile makeover. If you would like to improve your smile, please pay a visit to Dr. Liberman and her team!

Restorative Dentistry

As a restorative and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Liberman is a truly dynamic dentist. She can provide regular check-ups, improve the appearance of your teeth, and also improve the functioning of your mouth, which is what restorative dentistry is all about. In restorative dentistry, a person may be experiencing a lot of pain and a decrease in the functioning of their mouth. At Great Neck Dental Care, Dr. Liberman can provide a variety of restorative dentistry procedures, such as dental implants, custom dental crowns and bridges, dental fillings, dental bonding, and full-mouth reconstruction. If you are in pain or the functioning of your mouth is reduced, consider setting up an initial consultation with Dr. Liberman


Orthodontistry is the practice of correcting and straightening the alignment of one’s teeth. Typically, orthodontistry interventions are seen in young people and children. The braces are worn for a few years, and then are replaced with a nightly retainer. However, if you are an adult and do not want to wear braces, then you should consider paying a visit to Dr. Liberman at Great Neck Dental Care and she can outfit you with a pair of Invisalign braces, which are totally transparent.

Dr. Liberman of Great Neck Dental Care is a dynamic dentist who can provide you with a variety of services, anything from an annual cleaning, Invisalign, or a full mouth reconstruction. In addition to being a dynamic dentist, Dr. Liberman is also a mother and is greatly skilled at working with young children - which is not something all dentists are suited for. Whatever you and your family’s dental needs are, Dr. Liberman has the expertise for a correct assessment and treatment.
