Periodontal issues and dental implant surgery can have a huge impact on your overall oral health. While it is possible to treat periodontal disease and have dental implants placed by a general dentist, it is often best to see a board-certified periodontist for such treatments. In Periodontology, like many specialties, the highest level of education and distinction is to be board-certified by The American Board of Periodontology (ABP). When you choose to consult and be treated by a board-certified periodontist, you know that he or she is a specialist in periodontal disease and dental implant surgery. Periodontal and dental implant patients should seek out board-certified periodontists as compared to non-board-certified periodontists or general dentists because we have elected to be examined by our peers and if we pass the exams, it confirms we have a command of the research and clinical procedures. It also means for me that I continue to keep up with the research and its current applications. I would like to discuss with you why you should choose a board-certified periodontist in New York City for your periodontal issues and dental implant surgery. 

What is a Board-Certified Periodontist? 

A board-certified periodontist is a dental specialist who has advanced training in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of periodontal disease. We must pass a rigorous examination administered by the American Board of Periodontology in order to become board certified. In addition to our extensive knowledge and experience in periodontal care, we also attend continuing education courses to stay up-to-date on the latest treatments and technologies. 

Why Choose a Board-Certified Periodontist? 

There are several important reasons why it is beneficial to choose a board-certified periodontist for your periodontal care and dental implant procedures. 

Experience and Expertise 

A board-certified periodontist has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and dental implant surgery. We are experts in the field and understand the complexities of the condition and how it can impact your overall health. We are also experienced in the most advanced treatments and technologies available for treating periodontal disease. 

Comprehensive Treatment

A board-certified periodontist is trained to provide comprehensive treatment for periodontal disease. We can diagnose the condition and develop an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. This approach ensures that all aspects of your condition are addressed and that the best possible outcome is achieved. 

Oral Board Examiner for the LSU Periodontal Review Program for Periodontists

The periodontology review course for the board exam is the oldest continuously running continuing education course in the US. It’s a demanding exam that ensures that a board-certified periodontist is up-to-date with the latest periodontal and dental implant procedures and technology. I am an oral board examiner for the LSU Periodontal review program for periodontists preparing to take the oral board examination. Except for one other examiner, all the other examiners are deans of departments in dental schools or past program chairmen or chairwomen. 

I was asked to be an examiner by the director of the review course because I am a full-time clinician and they wanted my clinical expertise when examining the periodontists who take the review oral board exam. Being an examiner is an honor but it also gives me the opportunity to take the periodontal review lectures prior to the exam. As a result, I keep updated on all current knowledge from pharmacology through clinical research.
