What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three full time years of additional education beyond dental school. Dr Gallez is a Board Certified Periodontist. More information can be found on the site of the American Board of Periodontology and the American Academy of Periodontology.
By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Drs. Gallez and Poulos can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
What is our Practice Philosophy?
We are committed to provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis of your dental condition and a comprehensive treatment plan.
Periodontics is the foundation of any dental treatment plan. As periodontists, we will help formulate such a plan. Comprehensive treatment plan is a treatment that utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to total case management. It requires the clinician to integrate all aspects of dentistry (periodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, prosthodontics, etc) into a meaningful, step-by-step plan for you.
