A periodontal evaluation is an excellent investment in your oral health as well as your overall health. Sometimes the symptoms of periodontal problems do not appear until gum disease has progressed to the advanced stage. The good news is that professional dental care from a trained periodontist can help identify and treat gum disease before it is too late.

Contact us today to schedule an oral health consultation with Dr. Dehni. We�ll be happy to explain how we can help you achieve a smile that�s healthy, attractive and functional. Here are some forms to get you started on the way to the smile of your dreams.
