About Us

As one of the country’s most highly respected periodontal practices, we’re passionate about ensuring optimal periodontal and dental implant care with the most advanced, comprehensive and patient-focused services and procedures possible.

We hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure your best dental health and aesthetics. Our board-certified periodontists work in tandem with a large network of dentists, physicians and health professionals to provide compassionate, individualized and evidence-based care for your periodontal AND overall physical and emotional health. You can be assured you are receiving world-class periodontics and implant dentistry performed by one of the country’s most highly skilled and experienced periodontal teams.

Targeting Gum Disease

You only have one smile! Managing gum disease (known as periodontal disease in its most serious form) is critical to not only your oral health but the health of your entire body. A substantial and increasing number of studies link periodontal disease to serious systemic (affecting your entire body) diseases like heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, lung disorders, erectile dysfunction, stroke and more. Our doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating gum disease and can offer a variety of options to improve your dental and general health.

Employing the Latest Technologies

We employ today’s most sophisticated dental technologies to enhance outcomes. South Florida Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry’s doctors were recent pioneers in utilizing Yomi-Robotic Implant Surgery, the only FDA-approved robotic device that combines the periodontist’s skills with the benefits of state-of-the-art robotic guidance. We continually stay ahead of the curve with advanced procedures and technologies, like TeethToday® immediate-load dental implants, S.M.A.R.T™ bone generation technique, Piezosurgery® bone surgery, LANAP® laser-assisted gum surgery, DentalImplan® patient education software, REP regenerative procedure, accelerated orthodontics, permanent solutions to “gummy smiles” and much more.  Learn more about our advanced technologies.

If dental fear is keeping you from obtaining the healthy and radiant smile of your dreams, you can consider one of our sedation options. Whether you’re tackling bone loss, loose teeth, gum recession, deep gum pockets, or need one or more teeth replaced, your smile deserves the best.
