What is it?

A Periodontist is a dentist whose practice solely focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and mucogingival conditions, as well as the placement and treatment of dental implants.

A periodontist must have both a 5-year undergraduate dental degree, and an additional 3-year full time docturate or masters in Periodontology.
