Choosing a periodontist for specialized care like gum recession treatment and dental implant placement is similar to visiting a cardiologist for a heart condition. Periodontists are dentists who have successfully completed three additional years of rigorous training and education in gum conditions, bone health, and implant dentistry. As specialists, periodontists are highly qualified to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease, gum recession, bone loss, and other periodontal concerns. Periodontists also have advanced expertise in rebuilding lost bone in the jaw with bone grafting, and replacing missing and failing teeth with a wide range of dental implant solutions.

Taking their education and dedication one step further, Dr. Garrett Gouldin, Dr. Francisco Carlos, and Dr.Vishal Gohel are Diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology. To qualify for this achievement, each had to first complete dental school as well as periodontal specialized training followed by extensive and comprehensive written and oral examination. Only after these accomplishments can a clinician call themselves a board-certified periodontist. Having a Diplomate as your periodontist means that you are seeing a professional who has taken the time and effort to prove, before a panel of internationally respected peers, that they are competent enough to hold the specialty’s highest status.
