Matthew Nawrocki DMD, MS is a general family dentist and prosthodontist in Orange Park. Dr. Nawrocki is proud to offer a unique outlook on family dentistry. Dr. Nawrocki has earned his specialist licensure in prosthodontics. Prosthodontics is essentially the study of the artificial replacement of teeth.

What is a Prosthodontist?
- Would you like to improve your smile?
- Are you interested in treatments like porcelain veneers, dentures, dental implants, or aspects of cosmetic dentistry?
- Are you missing teeth?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, a prosthodontist may be able to help. Prosthodontics is one of the nine American Dental Association recognized dental specialties. Prosthodontists are educated and trained in many dental treatments including esthetic and cosmetic dentistry, crowns, bridges, veneers, all types of removable dentures, implant treatment, TMJ problems, trauma treatment, sleep apnea treatment, implant supported dentures, and full mouth reconstruction.
Why Choose a Prosthodontist?
Dentistry is an extremely complex and multifactorial profession. It is so complex that there are nine specialties as well as numerous other certifications available for dentists that would like to continue their education after dental school. The result of the complexity is that certain procedures and treatments can be best accomplished by a specialist who has higher levels of training in these complex cases.
