The office decor is nice and that's all. Waited for about half hour for appointment. Dental Assistant and Specialist were disorganized. Neither had any idea why I was there. It was clear they hadn't looked at my chart and didn't know xrays had been sent prior. They were even in my electronic file. Dentist blamed front office for scheduling my appointment as consult (1.5 hours long???) instead of the procedure. Says he won't be doing procedure today then quickly changed his mind to do it.. Dentist was lacking confidence. He shows me the procedure in pictures showing me a procedure that I don't need. Half way through consult, another Dental Assistant came and started to talk about another patient even though Dentist said they'd talk to them later. This practice should be a last resort.

When no other Dentist would help me including my own they came threw with flying colors. I love them so much that I switched my whole family to them.
Tips & Advices
To prevent periodontal disease, it's important to brush your teeth after meals, since this prevents food debris from getting lodged between your teeth and gums and causing plaque. Daily flossing should also be a key part of your oral health regimen, since this removes food particles and plaque that a toothbrush may not be able to reach. Smoking increases the risk of gum disease, so avoid this habit if you want to maintain healthy gums.
Certain periodontal treatments are completely painless and gentle enough to be administered without anesthesia. Treatments such as deep scaling, root planing, and those involving surgery are performed with the help of a local anesthetic or a sedative.
One of the most common types of treatments performed by periodontists is gum grafting. This is a surgical procedure that grafts your gum tissue to reverse gum recession, and it can prevent further recession and bone loss. Periodontists also perform laser treatment for gum disease, dental implant installation, pocket reduction procedures, and dental crown lengthening.
In periodontal treatment that involves surgery, many periodontists use a local anesthetic that works to completely numb the area being treated. Oral or IV sedation can also be used, and with this approach, you'll either be completely asleep, or drift in and out of sleep while the procedure is being performed.
Gum disease can be treated with the help of a dentist or periodontist. If gum disease is in its early stages, a professional cleaning will remove tartar before it leads to infection that can cause a more serious condition. With advanced cases of gum disease, infected gums can be treated with scaling and root planing.
