What is a Periodontist

What is a Periodontist?
A Periodontist is a specialist dentist who has completed additional training in the treatments for and management of gum disease. Periodontists work exclusively on diagnosing, treating and managing gum disease.

Our Smilepod Periodontist, Dr Anju, has extensive experience and knowledge of advanced techniques to help save teeth, which most general dentists do not usually have.

Periodontists focus entirely on treating gum disease. Dr Anju might treat your gum disease using a number of advance techniques including:

  • In-depth scaling &¬†root planing (Bacteria on the infected surfaces are cleaned)
  • Root surface debridement (damaged tissue is removed).
  • Periodontal Surgery

If you have a more aggressive form of gum disease or are in danger of tooth loss your dentist will likely refer you to a specialist periodontist.

“From the initial consultation, treatment and check ups, Dr. Anju and Smilepod staff were exteremelly professional, always keeping in attention my confort and welfare. Thanks to Dr. Anju and Smilepod, my dental health improved and I’m happier!”

Client feedback (APRIL 2016)

“The customer service was excellent and everyone was very patient with me. I was explained my treatment in details and the periodontist made me feel definitely comfortable as I was very concerned with the outcome of the check up.”


Friendly, supportive, listen to thoughts and concerns.


Anju and Harvey and all dental nurses talk to me like a person rather than a patient Anju and Harvey not judgmental at all and very kind about the situation I am in. I totally feel I am getting the best treatment


I had periodontal treatment through out the whole day. It wasn’t as daunting I thought it’d be. Anju is the best. She made me feel comfortable and always communicated with me telling me what to expect and how my the anaesthetic might make me feel. She was very kind and considerate. I couldn’t ask for a better periodontist.
