Welcome to the Martindale Dental website. We have designed the site to act as a valuable resource to learn more about any and all of your dental needs.

Our hygienists and dentists at Martindale Dental have years of experience in periodontics and implantology. Our speciality is conservative as well as surgical treatment of gum disease. This consists of not only cosmetic treatments to improve the overall look of your smile, but dental implants as well. We have the ability to replace any number of missing teeth.

We understand that no one likes going to the dentist or doctor which is why we have worked very hard over the years to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. Your comfort is very important to us.

We also understand that your comfort with your dentist is important to you, after all they already understand your needs. This is precisely why we work with your dentist to find the best solutions possible for your needs. We are flexible when it comes to referrals, although we do welcome them they are not required, making us very accessible.

We have worked hard over the years to develop a very strong team of dedicated professionals that we are very proud of. This not only helps with the patient’s dental needs but the administrative needs as well making the entire experience as efficient as possible.

At the end of the day our objective is to make you, the patient, feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. We are here to listen and answer any and all questions you could have about your dental health and offer solutions that meet your needs. Feel free to call us at any time if you have any concerns or questions with regards to your dental care.

What Is A Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dental professional who specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating periodontal (gum) disease. They also will place and maintain dental implants. They are experts well versed in the treatment methods for all forms of periodontal disease such as gingival recession, gingivitis, and periodontitis.

Periodontics is recognized by the American Dental Association as one of the nine varieties of dentistry. Dentists that specialize in periodontics undergo years of training, with an additional three years of education after dental school to specialize.

A periodontist will also be up to date with the newest treatments that can be customized to meet your specific needs. At Martindale Dental, we also offer a wide variety of cosmetic periodontal procedures to create the smile that you are looking for.
