Ballarat Dental Service
Make an appointment at our Ballarat dentist and we can give you any advice or information you need on periodontics - gum health. While our dentist, Dr Don Anderson, is not a Periodontic Specialist, he has a strong and informed interest in the prevention and treatment of gum disease.
A Periodontics Specialist works solely with the prevention and treatment of the tissues which support the teeth (periodontium) such as the gums and the underlying bone including gum disease, gingivitis and periodontitis. Dr Don Anderson is a general practice dentist who aims to use latest information and techniques to provide support, advice and relevant treatment to maintain periodontic health.
