Minimally Invasive Procedures

One of the unique aspects of our practice is Dr.Khansari’s philosophy to employ minimally invasive procedures for periodontal treatment. He truly believes that regeneration procedures have slowly become mainstream in periodontology.

Dr.Khansari is dedicated to using the latest surgical techniques including micro surgical procedures along with biological mediators that can accelerate healing and minimize post op discomfort.

Exceeding Your Expectations

When performing soft tissue regeneration or bone augmentation to save a periodontally comprised tooth or prepare the foundation for a dental implant, Dr. Khansari makes sure that he meets his own expectations and exceed yours.

It’s not in his nature to rush through work, nor is it in his nature to fall short of the demands of long surgeries. Dr. Khansari also remains meticulous over the precision and details of his work.
