What is a Periodontist Specialist?
Periodontists are general dentists who have completed an additional 3 years of formal school based residency training beyond dental school. Periodontics is one of several accredited specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. The culmination of this training for many but not all periodontists is certification by the American Board of Periodontology in the disciplines of Periodontics and Dental Implants.

Patients enjoy exceptional results with this procedure. It may be hard to believe, but we can actually send you home with a beautiful smile in just one day. There’s no need for general anesthesia, temporaries, nor is there a long healing time to worry about.
Periodontal & Dental Implant Specialist
All dentists complete a formal 4 year dental school education where they are taught the basics about the health and care of teeth, gums, supporting bone structures, and the jaw. Although requirements vary for each dental school, most require a bachelor’s degree. Typical basic coursework includes anatomy, the study of oral health and disease, radiology, local anesthesia, and tooth related restoration procedures.
Periodontal maintenance therapy is a program designed to prevent the progression of periodontal (gum) disease in the gum tissue and bone that supports the teeth. Periodontal maintenance is necessary for patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease.
