It's great to have a beautiful smile but what is most important to me is the overall health of my patients.

Naples Periodontics and Implant Dentistry

-Since 1977-

Welcome to Olde Naples Periodontics, the longest running periodontal practice in Naples, Florida. The foundation of our treatment philosophy is an earnest effort to preserve the natural teeth of our patients. Often it is possible to save teeth through a focus on the removal of bacteria and debris, and periodontal hygiene maintenance with our experienced hygiene team, before resorting to the extraction of teeth. If your general health benefits from extraction, dental implants can be considered. Our practice relies on my extensive experience and the team approach to provide patients the highest standard of care. I believe in thorough communication with patients, and reserve a full hour for new patient consultations.
