Barbara has been a patient of Stoner Periodontic Specialists for over a year. When she came to our office in Columbus, Ohio, she had serious gum disease that had caused deep pockets in her gums. Her primary care dentist cleaned her teeth four times per year but that wasn’t enough. Her dentist recommended she see a periodontist and referred her to Stoner Periodontic Specialists.
After the initial periodontal consult, Barbara’s doctor suggested Laser Periodontal Therapy to fix Barbara’s gum disease. Barbara felt well-informed going into her procedure because her doctor had given her literature to read beforehand. “I had the opportunity to read and then I had the opportunity to ask questions for which he took the time and spoke in lay language so that I could understand the information. I knew exactly what was going to happen and it made a difference,” explains Barbara.
The procedure took about one hour and Barbara experienced absolutely no pain or problems after the surgery. She left feeling like she knew how to take care of her mouth. Barbara now sees Stoner Periodontic Specialists two times each year for cleanings to keep her gums in the best shape possible.
“Stoner Periodotic Specialists are caring, persistent and they know what they are doing. I’m grateful for them because I still have my teeth. Thank you.”
