Periodontists and Implant Specialists Offer the Highest Standard of Care

Choosing a periodontist for specific oral health needs offers a number of advantages. Periodontists are dentists who receive an additional three years of advanced education beyond dental school. They undergo very specific training in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gum disease, and conditions affecting the bone. These specialists are also experts in implant dentistry. As periodontists, Dr. Patrick Johnson and Dr. Sausha Toghranegar are highly trained in a number of advanced procedures. This means that as a patient, you receive expert level care beyond what a general practice approach typically offers. Similar to consulting a cardiologist for a heart problem, visiting a periodontist for gum, bone and dental implant needs offers the highest standard of care for your oral health.
