Older or Younger Prosthodontist?
Should I choose and older or younger prosthodontist? The older one is 60 years old but has a great reputation and is on my insurance. The younger one is good also but is not on my health insurance. Is the older one too old -- not enough updated knowledge or does all his experience make him great? I need some advice. Thanks.
Sixty years old is not old for a prosthodontist. Many prosthodontists work into their seventies. The reputation may be more critical than the age.
