I’m a periodontist. PERIO=Around the tooth, DONTIST=A person who deals with teeth; therefore, I’m a dentist who deals with the supporting apparatus or foundation of the tooth, that is, the bone and gum. Through proper examination, diagnosis, and treatment planning with a patient’s needs in mind, I work to provide the most appropriate treatment to improve the health of your teeth, replace teeth if necessary, educate you regarding gum disease (bone loss) because it is chronic, and attempt to maintain your dentition and smile in a healthy state as long as possible. As I always say to patients, “I don’t cure periodontal disease. My goal is to establish health and make your mouth boring.” A boring mouth is a happy mouth.
