What is a Periodontist?



From the Greek word peri, meaning “around”, and odous, meaning “tooth”, Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. A Periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement and repair of dental implants. They are experts in the treatment of oral inflammation. Periodontists often treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history.

Periodontists offer a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planing (in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned) or root surface debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed). They can also treat patients with severe gum problems using a range of surgical procedures. Periodontists have a four year college degree, a three to four year dental degree and they attend an additional three year post-graduate training program in periodontology. Dr. Tarleton graduated from Brigham Young University in Utah, University of the Pacific in California and Saint Louis University in Missouri.

Testimonials
Our Patients Love Us

The work is excellent and done quickly. Every step was well explained with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Chair side attention to comfort, concerns (anxiety) and keeping you "in the loop" is exceptional. I feel quite blessed that I was able to chose A Dental & Denture to provide me with a brand new smile.

Excellent work, excellent service. I could not be happier my experience at A Dental. I highly recommend them.

Ellen P. on Google

Staff was very professional and accommodating, from the moment you enter the clinic until you leave. My fear of the dentist disappeared because of their warm welcome and cheerful disposition. Dr. Tarleton is undoubtedly highly skilled and showed good patient care by explaining every detail of the procedure that I underwent as well as post-op care and follow up. I had a very pleasant experience so I am highly recommending the whole dental team. If only I can give more than 5 stars---they are a perfect ten!

I am so grateful for finding A Dental & Denture. Everyone is so friendly, kind and I can honestly say they really care about you. I never thought I'd ever say I enjoy going to the dentist but I look forward to seeing the whole staff. A wonderful experience. Angela you are the best! Thank you all for helping me.

Any time I am in dire straits with the curse of my life, my bad teeth, I will go and see Angela, who is always the saving angel: she can help where others can't! I arrived without an appointment, because I had had an accident with my denture the night before (it broke apart) - I did not even have to wait long before Angela could see me, and a few hours later I walked out with everything repaired as perfectly as possible.
Thank you everyone for welcoming me back like an old friend!

These are the friendliest, hospitable, and flexible dentists I've ever been to. They bent over backwards to meet my needs. They also offered complimentary coffee and massage chair to help me relax after getting fillings.
They also guarantee their work and really stand by that. They saw me multiple extra times to answer questions and help me address concerns I had about them. Turns out I just have irritable teeth!
I recommend Dr. Angela and Dr. Tom to anyone with teeth...or who wants teeth!
