Meet Our Board Certified Indianapolis Periodontist
What is a Periodontist? Periodontists receive several additional years of education beyond dental school. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation, bleeding gums and severe Gingivitis, and Cosmetic Gum Procedures.

But, I can also help them live happier lives through our services to replace missing teeth and improve the cosmetic look of their smiles. That is a unique position that makes my chosen profession so rewarding. - Dr. Lane

What does Board Certified Mean?
All periodontists must complete an additional two to three years of specialized training in periodontics following dental school. However, some periodontists opt to take the board-certification examination, which is offered by the American Board of Periodontology. A dentist who becomes board certified in periodontology is one who has made significant achievements beyond the mandatory educational requirements of the specialty. This includes demonstrating a comprehensive mastery of all phases of periodontal disease and treatment and in the placement of dental implants. Board certified periodontists are required to renew their certification every six years.
