When it comes to your smile, your teeth, your mouth and your health, don’t you deserve an opinion from a specialist? For an accurate diagnosis, for unparalleled expertise, and for state of the art technology, consider a consultation from us, especially before irreversible, and often time irrecoverable, treatment is performed.

Dentistry is a profession where patient trust is its greatest asset. It is also a profession where, historically, specialist intervention was a regular and frequent component of the treatment planning process. Today, the boundaries of treatment are less clear and the value of collaboration is being muted.

So, how are you (a consumer/patient) to know who is a true expert and who is uniquely qualified to manage for your periodontal, implant and bone reconstruction surgical needs? Whom should you trust to perform surgery on you?

We are proud to announce that we are one of the only periodontal specialty practices in the world that practices in an accredited office based surgery center facility – a level of accountability not common in traditional private practices.

Below are some of the credentials and qualifications that make us unique. Most importantly, we work in a team approach manner with outstanding restorative dentists, other dental specialists and medical colleagues for patient-centered, interdisciplinary outcomes that are sustainable and ones that represent “collaborative accountability” in its truest form.
