Meet The Team
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. You will also benefit from the confidence that our post-graduate training will ensure you are appropriately diagnosed and the treatment that is recommended for you is the best currently available treatment for your long-term dental health
We are extraordinarily proud of our staff, which is comprised of caring and dedicated professionals. They ensure that all patient’s surgical and administrative needs are met as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
