On Being a Periodontist

In the 40 years I’ve been a practicing periodontist, I’ve never lost my passion to improve my patients’ oral health. When I’m able to restore their ability to chew comfortably, and smile without worrying about their appearance, I know I’ve made a difference for them. I truly enjoy what I do, and practice with sensitivity, compassion, and integrity.

I strive to remain on the leading edge of periodontics, melding current technologies and proven treatment processes, along with my experience. Together, these ensure the strongest results for my patients, along with the most comfortable care. — Dr. Barry S. Blank
