Why Our Practice?

We are assuming that you are viewing this website either because you have been referred to our office or have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, recession defects or need dental implants and are looking for the right surgeon for you. We are happy that you are here. As it is important to seek a cardiologist for specialty heart care or an eye doctor for advanced eye conditions, we are specialists for the treatment of gum disease and placement of dental implants. We are here to support your general dentist and to help lead you to excellent oral health and esthetics.

Many people walk around with periodontal disease without knowing it. Even some who have been properly diagnosed choose to decline treatment because they don't "feel it". I can assure you that ignoring it does not make the problem go away. It will only make it worse, more difficult to fix and more expensive as you wait to be treated. We are here to answer your questions, to make treatment accessible to you and to help you get the care you need.

The importance of seeking specialty care include our ability to manage moderate to severe cases in many different ways. We will customize treatment for you and your specific condition and risk factors. This is incredibly important in the overall prognosis and success in managing gum disease and the health of implants over time. We are here to walk you through any procedure you may need and our goal is to bring you to health and decrease your anxiety and fear. We do this through education of your particular condition and to be readily available to answer your questions. Our staff is professional and friendly and we take pride in what we do.

We want you to know how passionate we have become to help you achieve not only your dental health, but your systemic health. We are friendly to holistic health/functional medicine and are always open to learning from our patients as well. We will discuss, in depth, your findings and some methods to attack the problem. We are here to listen and to help you take charge of your health.
