Our patientS say

Why choose Us

Our office philosophy is to provide conservative, high quality, ethical and honest periodontal care in a professional environment.



Periodontics is the field of dentistry that involves the gum tissue, ligaments and alveolar bone. Most often, patients are referred to our office because they have periodontal disease or require gum-related surgery.

Dental Implants

A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth or to keep a denture plate in place. Implants are durable, lasting restorations that rely on a process known as osseointegration to naturally fuse with the bone of your jaw.

Laser Therapy

New laser technology allows the periodontist to remove the diseased gum tissue without traditional surgery.

Smile Makeovers

A smile enhancement is performed on patients who have a “gummy” or uneven smile. You may feel as though you have too much gum tissue that takes away from the beauty of your natural smile.
