WHAT IS A PERIODONTIST ?

A periodontist is a dentist who has done an additional 4 years of full-time tertiary training in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases, as well as in the replacement of missing teeth by means of dental implants. This often entails advanced bone and soft tissue grafting procedures to facilitate the placement of implants in the correct position and insure a long- term successful result.

Dr Patterson often treats more problematic cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. We offer a wide range of treatments, in the fields of Periodontics, Oral Medicine and Implant dentistry.
