What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who has become a specialist in diagnosing and treating diseases of the gum and bone that support the teeth. A periodontist also specializes in the placement of dental implants. After completing four years of dental school, there is an additional three years of specialty training. Dr. Forrest continues to update his knowledge each year by taking additional courses at dental universities and professional meetings.
It is our mission to help our patients enjoy beautiful smiles that are both natural-looking and long-lasting. Through a customized combination of preventative, restorative and cosmetic procedures that use the latest state-of-the-art technologies, our patients are able to smile and laugh with confidence. We know that cutting-edge equipment and advanced training isn't the only indication of true dental care, and we are proud to offer each of our patients personal attention in a warm, comfortable and confidential atmosphere.
Dedicated to Excellence
We hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence. This includes every aspect of our practice, from the dental care we provide to the equipment we use to the health and safety protocols we follow to the incidental services we offer, such as being available to our patients during dental emergencies. Above all, our aim is to provide each of our patients with healthy teeth and gums and beautiful smiles throughout their lives.
An Experienced Dentist
Dr. Forrest has completed extensive education and clinical training in comprehensive dental care as well as specialized training in his area of expertise. He holds memberships and fellowships in many professional dental organizations. Driven to constantly improve his knowledge and the services he provides, he frequently attends conferences and society meetings to learn about the latest advancements in the field so that he can offer these new techniques and technologies to his patients. In all of these ways and more, we are able to provide our patients with the highest quality dental care.
We Work as a Team
Dr. Forrest is the primary part of our periodontal team, but our hygienists, assistants and front office play significant roles. Coordinating these team members schedules can be a challenge, but you are guaranteed an excellent outcome.
Preventive care is an essential part of ensuring good oral health. With that in mind, we make sure to include an array of routine preventive services in our comprehensive patient exams. These include:
- Physical inspection of the teeth and gums
- Oral cancer screening
- Cleaning and flossing
- Fluoride treatment
We also take in-depth medical histories from each of our patients when they come to our office. This helps us to better understand our patients' current health, predict what problems might develop in the future, and keep track of any medications they are taking that may impact their dental health.
Protect Tomorrow, Today
Most people want to keep their own natural teeth all of their lives. They also want (or must have) low dental bills while keeping their teeth attractive and comfortable. Plans, well-made today, can make this possible.
The prevention of dental disease is the primary objective of this office. Most of our efforts will be directed toward this end.
Dr. Forrest has written and illustrated a pamphlet explaining the effective control of dental disease. You can obtain this pamphlet by clicking on the title below:
The Importance of Patient Education
A key part of preventing dental problems is being aware of how they can develop. We strongly believe that patient education is an important part of the services we provide. In addition to talking with our patients during their exams, we have a ready supply of patient education materials such as brochures and information sheets in our office. We encourage our patients to read about dental diseases and ask us questions about how to stay healthy.
Thank you for choosing us to be your dental care providers!
