Why did your Dentist refer you to a Periodontist?
Your general dentist has determined that your gums require special care, and has referred you to a periodontist. Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gum disease. By referring you to a periodontist, your dentist is showing a strong commitment to your optimal dental care.
You may also have been referred for a dental implant consultation. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dr. Richard E. Howell, DDS, MS. Since earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Ohio State University and Master’s Degree in Dentistry from University of Texas, Dr. Howell has gained over 44 years of experience and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology.
Dr. Howell is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Periodontology. This is the highest level of recognition that can be earned in the specialty of periodontics, and less than one-third of all periodontists hold this distinction.
