Have You Seen Dr. Smith Around the Practice?
I know your time is precious. You don’t want to go to my office for a dental exam only to be told to go to another person for some other dental-related treatment. In the interest of providing you with the most outstanding dental care possible in the most convenient way, we bring Dr. Scott Smith to the office every month so you can receive top-notch periodontal treatment in your very own dental home. What is a periodontist and how do you benefit from having one in my office? I’m glad you asked.
A periodontist is a specialist that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of gum disorders like gingivitis and periodontitis. Periodontists like Dr. Scott have completed three additional years of education and have extensive knowledge and experience of periodontal treatment methods.
How does this benefit patients? In addition to making periodontal treatment convenient, having an in-house periodontist allows us to provide patients with extreme periodontal problems with top-of-the-line healthcare. You see, periodontal disease is linked to hazardous health concerns such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes; we want our at-risk patients to benefit from the care of a doctor that has the knowledge and know-how to give them the best care possible.
I am honored to have such an accomplished professional on our team. Dr. Scott will be in the office monthly to provide our patients who suffer from advanced periodontal disease with the care they need and deserve. While we would never hope for you to experience gum disease, we do hope you’ll say “Hi” to him the next time you’re in our office.
