Why Certification is Important
What are the credentials of a board-certified periodontist?
Periodontists are experts in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gum disease, and in the surgical placement of dental implants.
Board-certified periodontists have made a personal and professional commitment to the standards of periodontics and to continued growth through ongoing education.
