There are many different types of practice philosophies. However, I have always provided Evidence Based Dentistry to my patients. The Literature always provides an excellent guide to understand different Periodontal and Implant modalities. Following these guidelines has always provided me excellent esthetic and functional results, predictable treatment outcomes and overall treatment value. Since my 1st day in Naples over 11 years ago, I have always offered to my patients the best my profession has to offer. Over 5 years ago, I acquired a Cone-beam dental CT scan which has allowed me to plan my implant/ bone grafting cases without any guesswork and allowed me to virtually eliminate surgical surprises.
A 3-D radiographic image can be used and downloaded into special Guided Implant planning software. From there, precision guided implant surgery can be planned. This decreases surgical time, overall post-surgical discomfort, and even can allow for the Final placement of implant restorations (Teeth in an Hour) at the same appointment. (Adequate number of implants and certain clinical requirements must be met prior to immediate loading of dental implants).
Making the commitment to become a Board Certified Periodontist and credentialed at NCH Hospital, I have been able to provide a unique dental experience. From the warm ambiance in my waiting room to being greeted by thoroughly trained office personnel, your visit becomes personalized immediately. Since a portion of my patients are seasonal or even travel from abroad for their care, my surgical approach to minimize post surgical complications and/ or pain has proven to become a well-known characteristic of my practice.
I look forward for the opportunity to help you achieve you dental goals.
