Services Provided by the Periodontics Specialty Practice
The Periodontics Specialty Practice provides the full spectrum of periodontal treatment—including periodontal surgeries, extractions, corrections of gum recession or overgrowth, and dental implant placement—among other treatments. We also work with the other Pitt Dental Medicine Specialty Practices and will internally refer your patient to ensure they receive all of the care that you recommend.
What to Bring to Your Patient's First On-Site Appointment
Your patient's first appointment will be a Telehealth screening call. At this time, a doctor will gather information about them, and then schedule an on-site appointment.
Your patient's first on-site visit will be for an examination, X-rays (if necessary) and to discuss the treatment plan. Treatment generally will start on the second appointment.
Fees and Payment Options
All treatment must be paid in full on the day of treatment.
