Dr. John employs the latest techniques in Minimally Invasive Periodontal Therapy to care for every patient’s needs


The primary goal in periodontal therapy, and dentistry in general, is to provide the patient with a healthy, disease free, functioning and esthetic dentition. We provide a range of services in order to help meet that goal.


We strive to keep our facilities clean and comfortable for the duration of your visit. Our warm and open reception area invites you to pick up a magazine while waiting for your appointment to begin, while our procedure rooms include the option to view a selection of videos to help keep your mind at ease.

Orthodontic Therapy Inter-Relationship

One of the biggest frustrations in maintaining our periodontal patients is dealing with crowded teeth. Orthodontic therapy eliminates one of these important factors known to contribute to the cause of periodontal disease.


Patient Info and Forms

It is impossible to properly diagnose and treat a patient dentally without looking at the patient as a whole person. During your first visit, Dr. John will conduct a one-on-one consultation to determine your best treatment options.
