There are 7 key questions we advise patients to ask when searching for a great periodontist.

  1. Do they treat the actual bacterial cause of periodontal disease or do they just cut away at the resultant pockets?
  2. When treating periodontal disease, do they use the state of the art LANAP laser procedure, which causes minimal discomfort, or do they use the painful cutting and stitching surgery?
  3. For unsightly gum recession do they use the much gentler Chou gum rejuvenation technique which uses no scalpels or do they use conventional surgery that creates a painful wound on the roof of the mouth?
  4. Are they very concerned about my comfort?   Do they offer sedation for anxious patients or do they only use local anesthetic shots?
  5. Are they a family owned and operated practice in the community for over 40 years focusing first on your needs or are they in a corporate owned practice managed by MBA’s from afar setting daily production goals?
  6. Are they available in their office 5 days per week to attend to my concerns or do they travel to many different offices and only visit your office a couple of days per month?
  7. Are they friendly and personable and have great Google reviews?  Do they take the time to listen to my concerns and then do a comprehensive examination and tailor a treatment plan specific to my needs and desires?
