The current emphasis in periodontics is on its relationship and connection to many chronic systemic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, certain cancers and a number of other chronic conditions. Dr. Gartner’s philosophy is to help his patients avoid such consequences of periodontal disease and instead achieve optimal health and esthetics.

“I work closely with a patient’s general dentist to work out a customized treatment plan for each case. Teamwork and communication are the keys to success,” he says. “Today, hard and soft tissue grafting for cosmetics and dental implants to restore the mouth are the current focus in periodontal care, along with keeping one’s teeth and gums healthy.” Dr. Gartner has doing implants for over 25 years!
