What are the Top Ten Reasons to Use Drs. Mark and Tom McCawley?

We had the first periodontal laser in the country in 1990

We had the first periodontal laser in the country in 1990. Since then, we have completed over 5,000 successful laser periodontal procedures, more than any other periodontal practice in the world. This laser treatment is much less invasive than traditional cutting and stitching surgery, and is FDA approved to regenerate bone instead of destroying bone like traditional surgery. Both doctors received the LANAP Gold Medal for their laser studies.

Over 30 years ago, our office pioneered treating the bacterial cause of periodontal disease

Over 30 years ago, our office pioneered treating the bacterial cause of periodontal disease, not just the resultant pockets, to cure not just control the infection, which helps prevent recurrence. We have analyzed over 400,000 bacterial samples under the microscope, more than any other periodontal practice in the world.

For implants, Dr. Mark McCawley completed three years of graduate training in their placement and is board certified in dental implant surgery

For implants, Dr. Mark McCawley completed three years of graduate training in their placement and is board certified in dental implant surgery. He has successfully placed hundreds of implants and specializes in placing “All on 4” cases. For these case, he usually places 6 implants which greatly increases predictability.. He uses only the top of the line, most-researched implants, not generic knockoffs.

Dr. John Chao: “Drs. Mark and Tom McCawley are very prominent and talented periodontists in Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. John Chao: “Drs. Mark and Tom McCawley are very prominent and talented periodontists in Fort Lauderdale. They have taught in my seminar several times and are one of only 30 offices in the world that I have certified as Advanced Pinhole Surgeons. They are extremely experienced in Pinhole Surgery and have done many procedures with beautiful results. The doctors are well known nationally on the Pinhole Technique and co-authored a study that they presented at the American Academy of Dental Research of 266 Pinhole Surgery sites that averaged 93% coverage at an average time of 17 months. They are the go-to office for this procedure in South Florida.”

We were recently invited to lecture to an international implant meeting on our technique to save failing implants.

If you are anxious, we offer both oral and IV sedation to make you very comfortable during treatment.

If you are anxious, we offer both oral and IV sedation to make you very comfortable during treatment. Most procedures can be accomplished in only one visit.
