What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a specially trained dentist who specializes in evaluating and treating periodontal ("gum") disease using both surgical and non-surgical approaches. A periodontist also specializes in soft-tissue ("gum") procedures which enhance the esthetics of your gum line, sometimes in preparation for cosmetic dentistry; as well as specializing in the placement of dental implants.


If you are a dentist or other medical professional, download our referral form to refer our patients for a periodontal consultation.

Do I need a referral to see a Periodontist?

Absolutely not. Most people are referred to us by their own dentist, but we also welcome self-referred patients concerned with their periodontal health or interested in finding out more information about implants or cosmetic gum procedures.
