Your gums are the framework for a picture-perfect smile. Periodontics focuses on the health and treatment of gums and bones, working to correct and prevent damage caused by gingivitis, periodontist or other gum diseases. Maintaining healthy gums strengthens the foundation of your mouth.

Dr. Mark Pakan is dedicated to providing patients with the latest and most effective treatment available, while ensuring complete relaxation in the dentist’s chair.
