Building a Relationship, Rebuilding Your Health
Before we restore your dental health here at Periodontal Medicine & Surgical Specialists, our periodontists in Park Ridge, IL seek to build a relationship with you. We believe that it’s important to first earn your trust through open, honest communication. It’s our goal to educate you not only on any treatments you may need but also on all the modern-day treatment options we can make available to you. There isn’t always just one way to address a dental issue, and what may be right for another patient may not be right for you. We do our best to put you in a position to make your own well-informed choices. This way, you’re more than a patient; you actually become a partner in your treatment. With this foundation we’re able to deliver truly personalized care that matches your needs. We’ll never try to sell you services you don’t want or need. Nor do we limit our focus to your teeth and gums. The care we provide takes the big picture into consideration. Our holistic method recognizes that your dental health affects your systemic health, and vice versa. This comprehensive approach, led by renowned surgical specialists, and complemented by advanced technology, produces exceptional outcomes for patients throughout the Park Ridge, IL area every day. We’re eager to do the same for you, too.

Regain your health, your smile, and your enjoyment of life with replacement teeth that look, feel, and perform just like the real thing—and can last for the rest of your life.

Correct crooked and crowded teeth with a modern alternative to traditional orthodontics. Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy, or SFOT, allows us to modify the foundation of your teeth, your jawbone, to see a straighter, healthier smile. In most cases, patients can avoid unnecessary tooth extractions and are even less likely to develop receding gums after treatment.
