Why Choose Our Practice?
When it comes to choosing a periodontist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.
Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:
Board Certified and Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology
A Diplomate or Board Certified periodontist is one who has made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty and who is certified by the American Board of Periodontology. Board certified periodontists are required to take significant hours of continuing education yearly and are recertified every 3 years.
To be educationally qualified for Board certification requires:
- Certification as a dentist, including basic college education and completion of dental school to earn the D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree and;
- Certification as a periodontist after at least 3 years of postdoctoral study in an ADA approved program. This period of study is concentrated on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of periodontal disease.
In addition to the educational requirements, Board certification requires:
- Comprehensive oral and written examinations covering all phases of periodontal disease and its treatment, including dental implants.
- Presentation of detailed reports on a broad range of actual treatment personally provided by the periodontist.
