Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.

The Dental Board of Victoria recognises periodontics as one of the specialities of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including 2-3 years of post graduate education after dental school.

In addition, Drs. Rodriguez-Ortiz and Kiven can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
