Your Dream Team for Beautiful Smiles and Faces

Your Dream Team for Beautiful Smiles and Faces

Next visit Exam with Dr. Yetta McCullom

Your general dentist has your best care in mind and would like a bit of help with your care.  As a periodontist  I assist your dentist and hygienist with managing your periodontal health.   Welcome to my office/website. I will examine you, talk with you and offer the most ideal care for your situation. All I do is treat gum disease, also called periodontal disease, also called pyorrhea (nothing good ends in rhea) . For your first appointment I will review your medical and family health history,  likely measure around every tooth, touch the gums around the teeth, check to see if any teeth are loose, and take x-rays if you don’t bring them. Then we’ll talk over options. Have some ideas in mind about what you want long term when it comes to keeping your teeth or loosing them. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss and is associated with other health issues.  There is hope. Patients are often surprised at what can be done to help them manage and maintain health.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Dr.Yetta McCullom
