He is trained in all aspects of periodontics including non-surgical and surgical treatment of periodontal and gum diseases, periodontal bone regeneration and periodontal soft tissue grafting. He also has extensive training in the surgical placement of dental implants, all-on-4 dental implants, hard tissue grafting (including sinus augmentation), and soft tissue grafting to enhance the aesthetics of dental implants.
