Q: What’s the difference between a periodontist and a regular dentist?
A: When a patient needs expert advice regarding gum disease, bone loss, dental implants and complicated treatment planning, then a Periodontist would be a good choice for a specialty doctor. If the Periodontist needs the services of a restorative dentist, then a referral can be made. Most of the time the restorative dentist and Periodontist work together in the best interests of the patient.
Q: How do you handle severely fearful or phobic patients? Is it possible for the first visit to be just to meet the Dr. and discuss the issue up front rather than having an examination?
A: Yes. We can discuss your situation if you like and perform the examination another day or even that day IF you feel comfortable. There is no pressure. We will be in a relaxed and non-threatening environment.
Please speak to my staff when you call and mention this response.
Dr. Eric Linden
