Today we’d like to feature a periodontics and dental implantology practice in North Jersey which we have had the pleasure of providing our services for. When plaque has caused advanced dental issues which a regular dentist is not equipped to handle, they are typically handled by a Periodontist which is essentially a dental surgeon who fixes the supporting structures of the teeth. Typically, periodontists focus on the foundation whereas dentist focus on the cosmetic aspect of dentistry.
Comfort is one of the major decision-makers when it comes to choosing a dentist. We’ve all had those dentist chair nightmares when we were little, haven’t we? And since periodontists perform more involved surgical procedures than dentists, comfort and trust are crucial when choosing a periodontist. We have personally trusted Dr. Kim with our friends and family members and he has done stellar periodontal work on them.
With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Edward Kim is exceptionally knowledgeable, compassionate, and very skilled in performing periodontal procedures such as bone grafts, gum grafts, and setting the foundation for dental implants in complicated cases. He is a specialist in periodontics and a proud member of the American Academy of Periodontology. After graduating from Colgate University with a Bachelors Degree, he attained his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from University of Pennsylvania where he achieved the Professor Morton Amsterdam Award along with specialty certificates in Periodontics and Periodontal Prosthesis. Dr. Kim then went to G.P. residency at the Yale New Haven Hospital to learn about treating medically compromised patients.
Dr. Edward Kim has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Some of the major periodontal surgeries he excels at are osseous surgery, crown lengthening, bone grafting, gum grafting, and attending to TMJ disorders.
