Did you know that over half of Americans 30 and over suffer from chronic gum disease? Also called periodontal disease, gum disease starts out as gingivitis. This mild form of gum disease is characterized by symptoms such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums.
If treated in its earliest stages, gingivitis can be reversed. However, allowing gingivitis to advance into serious periodontal disease can cause permanent damage to your gums, teeth, and jawbone. This can lead to tooth loss, structural issues within your mouth and other serious problems.
If you suspect that you have gum disease, it is important you see a gum disease expert. This expert is also known as a periodontist. A periodontist is a dentist who has received an additional three years of training in gum disease management, cosmetic techniques and dental implant techniques.
To schedule a consultation with a periodontist in Atlanta, call Dental One Associates of Georgia. We look forward to hearing from you.
What Kind of Services Does a Periodontist in Atlanta Provide?
In Greek, the word “perio” means “around” and the word “dontic” means “tooth.” Combined, these two words make up periodontics. Periodontists are experts in diagnosing and treating issues with gum tissue.
Our periodontics office provides the following periodontal services:
Periodontal disease treatment
Did you know that gum disease starts due to the bacteria that are found in plaque? Plaque is a sticky substance that collects on the surface of the teeth after you eat or drink. It is usually removed by brushing and flossing. However, if you allow plaque to build up, the bacteria will cause cavities to form. Eventually, the bacteria will move into the gum tissue, causing your teeth to become loose. Severe cases can cause bone damage in the jawbone.
Dental implant placement
If you are in need of a crown, bridge, or denture, your dentist may recommend that you receive dental implants. A dental implant is a natural-looking replacement for a tooth. It is embedded into the jawbone and acts in the same way as the tooth’s roots do. Dental implants help to preserve your jawbone, while also keeping the surrounding teeth safe and secure.
Another service that a gum disease expert offers is a procedure that lengthens the crown of the tooth. The crown of the tooth is the area that is covered by your gums. The procedure is done in order to reduce the amount of gum tissue surrounding the tooth. It can be done for cosmetic or for medically necessary reasons. These medically necessary reasons include lengthening a tooth so a crown can be fitted tightly over the tooth, making room for brackets for braces or making space so partial dentures can be fitted properly.
Gummy smile surgery
Everyone’s smile is different. Some people have larger areas of gum tissue surrounding their teeth, which often makes it look as if their teeth are shorter than they should be. If you have this problem, a gum disease specialist can remove the excess gums and shape the gum tissue surrounding your gums in a way that will make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Soft tissue graft/gum graft
In cases of severe periodontal disease the gum tissue recedes and exposes the tooth’s root. If you suffer from this problem, your periodontist will perform a gum grafting procedure that will replace the missing tissue, reduce further recession, and reduce your risk for decay or future bone loss.
Oral pathology and oral cancer diagnosis
Periodontists are also able to screen for oral cancer. The HPV virus causes many types of oral cancer. Smoking is another cause of oral cancer. If testing reveals that you have cancer, our compassionate team will discuss the best treatment methods for you.
If you’re worried about feeling pain during your procedure, don’t worry. Our periodontists are able to utilize nitrous oxide (laughing gas). We are also able to use other methods of sedation that will ensure your comfort throughout your procedure.

Our patients leave smiling
Dr Washington was awesome and His team took Great care of me.. Thanks Kesha For Calling And checking on me next day!!!!
Great dental office! No one likes the dentist, but the folks at Dental One Toco Hills make it a painless and pleasant experience. Everyone is so friendly and kind, assuaging the fears of even the most scared dental patient. Kesha made a point to help us utilize our insurance coverage, and Dr. Lisa was so kind and encouraging. Having a periodontist and orthodontist in the office makes more complica…
There was not waiting and the staff were very friendly and cordial. The doctor who performed the crown lengthening had great bedside manners, made me feel at ease and explain the process before he began. He was gentle and tried to make sure I had the least amount of pain discomfort during the procedure.
First off I would like to say thanks to doctor Sarah and her team for doing an awesome job. I have been terrified of the dentist for many years due to a bad experience, but doctor Sarah has changed that for me and I am very appreciative of everything her and her team has done for me. She constantly asked if I was ok and made sure I was not feeling any pain. The work she did is phenomenal!!! I can&…
I highly recommend Dent One Associates based on the exceptional level of special customer care & expertise applied by each professional involved. The tab for various services received came to quite a high amount, thus my expectations for detailed explanations in advanced & through the process were just as high. From: – Mary, the Coordinator handling financial arrangements & do…
I was blown away by the personal attention I received at my dental visit. I was shown care and compassion during a very difficult time
I loved the way the staff treated me as a first time patient. They were even patient enough to contact and wait on my former dentist office to send files over. They had a great team of people who assisted me, trey, Jenny, and Dr Hardwick. They came up with a plan that I totally agree with, and that I feel will be in the best interest for my desired end result.
The staff are friendly, caring & professional. Dr Perez has the best “bedside manner” you’ll ever find and his knowledge, experience & expertise are simply incredible. The pricing is reasonable enough for everyone and they have a big heart! And now I have a BIG SMILE to be proud of! Thanks guys! Love you all!
Dental One has the most upbeat staff that make a dentist visit pleasurable. They are not only friendly but very helpful and knowledgeable They also work with you to keep costs down when you don’t have insurance. .
I had an awesome time with the staff at Dental One Associates! Jovan was amazing. He was very supportive and understanding. I was very nervous,especially because I have never been to this location, however, he assured me that I’d be ok. He is a great asset to any company! Also Dr. Zehirova was a pleasure in assisting me. She was very patient and kind. I asked a lot of questions and she answe…
When I arrived at Dental One Associates, I was promptly greeted, signed in, and quickly taken back for my appointment by Casey. Casey, along with the other staff, were professional and friendly. They made me feel extremely comfortable and confident. Casey exceeded my expectations during the appointment through thorough explanations and excellent care. She was genuine and gentle to ensure that I ha…
Service at a level that is second to none! Awesome staff very friendly and attentive by far the best dental experience I have ever had!
Dr. Thornton is one of the best dentists I have ever been pleased to call “My dentist.” Her skill and patience are topped with a wonderful personality and she has a soft manner and touch even with the most difficult procedures.
I’d definitely recommend Dr. Sarah Thornton and her wonderful staff without any hesitation. They are efficient, great at what they do and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way — because going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a nightmare! My first visit didn’t feel like my first visit at all — people are approachable and friendly. The location is another…
I tried few dental offices but, I settled for Dental one because of their love and professionalism. I felt so much at home and I will recommend them to anyone
My experience was very pleasant and the dental assistant very kind.The doctor was very nice and kind and didn’t make me feel bad for the length of time since I had been to a dentist.He fixed the problem I had and I was very pleased with the results.I also needed some financial help and they were kind to work with me regarding a payment plan. As I was searching for a dentist I found very few…
Awesome experience from beginning to end! I came in for receding gums, and the doctors set up a a treatment plan that was quick and easy. I had me teeth cleaned today, and the staff was gentle and amazing. No hurting teeth!! I recommend them for any procedure you need involving your teeth and gums! From office staff to hygentisits to doctors: all were kind and helpful.
I feel like family when I come to receive my treatment. I never experienced any problems with customer service from my hygienist down to the receptionist. I feel like they always have my best interest in mind.
Dr Joe is the the best . Did a very difficult crown removal and replacement for me. His experience was to the benefit of me. Trust him with all my dental work.
I love Dr. Grant and his amazing staff. Of all the doctors I’ve ever been to I prefer my dentist. I can not thank them enough for my smile :)
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Sabur is the best!
The people that work there are really, really nice and you will receive great dental work. They are very gentle and they make you feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend their office.
I am trying to click ten. The service is Amanda was excellent!!!! I came there in fear because of past experiences, your staff made me comfortable from day one!!!! I am so grateful. Your level of professionalism is top notch!!!! Thank you so much!
Dental 1 dentistry is by far the best dentist that I have been to bar none. I have visited various dentist and have felt like they cared more about their bottom line than my overall dental health. Dr. McMillan is simply the best with her attitude and true professionalism, and the dental hygienist Winsom did an A+ job cleaning my teeth as well. Highly recommended
Staff seeming to truly in tune with you ability to adapt when scared to death. Willing to answer all your questions & concerns. Didn’t rush you out just because it was their lunch time. Dentist very concerned, helpful and a very pleasant personality. This means a lot when it comes to a person who is petrified of dental offices sites, sounds & precedures done.
Very professional and helpful in assisting to get appointment times that are convenient and conducive for my work schedule. I am pleased with the services that I receive from this office.
I have been a patient at Dental One Associates (College Park, GA) for more than 15 years. Surely, I would not remain with this Dental Office if efficient and professional services were not provided for my oral health. If any service performed is not to your expectation, every step will be taken to ensure your satisfaction. You only have to direct your concerns to Mrs. Addie Darden (Office Manager)…
I’ve been going here for years to see Dr DeAngelis. My last visit was my first ever gum graft. I was uncertain of how things would go as I heard how painful this would be. Kesha made my wait time entertaining as she broke the ice and made me laugh. Great personality to make anyone feel comfortable. Dr Washington performed the procedure and it took about an hour or so. Not once did I feel pai…
The entire staff was friendly, knowledgeable and explained everything about my care and options :-) I was nervous about my appointment and they put all of my fear aside.
My 5 year old love it. Great customer service
Miriam was excellent! Dr. Jo is always the best.
Staff makes you feel right at home. All very competent.
I have been going to this location to get my teeth cleaned for a few years now. My original hygienist moved to another location so I have had quite a few different ones during my past few cleanings. Unfortunately I no longer felt like I was receiving the same level of service as I originally received and I never felt like my teeth were really cleaned when I left. I went to the office this week for…
I would recommend this location to anyone who’s in need of an awesome Dentist or Orthodontist….staff here are great!!!!
I have been going to Dr. Grant for years with my family and always received warm hospitality. The people here do exceptionally well work. The staff is very kind and willing to help you any way they can. I couldn’t recommend Drs. Grant and Conger enough.
I have been a patient at Dr. Grant’s since 1976 and have always had great work on my teeth there and Dr. Grant and staff are wonderful and friendly always to me and my family who also are patients there.
The staff is always so caring and concerned about how I’m doing during any of my dental work. Everyone there goes above and beyond to create a wonderful atmosphere! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!
The staff is very knowledgeable about cost/services. I especially appreciated Kesha. She took time to explain my current conditions, suggested treatments and cost effective solutions based on my insurance/financial commitment. Thanks for going the extra mile.
The very best care I have ever had – and I am an older lady. Hats off to everyone – from the greeter who is friendly and efficient. To the person handling the billing who worked hard to get my bill down to the lowest possible. To the dental assistant who was friendly and professional. To the dental surgeon who did an amazing job. I am happy to be healing well…
I love my hygienist Lanae. She was honest with me and she always does a fantastic job cleaning my teeth.
I’ve been a patient for close to 17 years, I have a terrible fear of dentist but would recommend Dr. Joe to anyone with the same problem he has a soft easy manner that sets you at ease.
Everyone was friendly and showed interest that we were taken care of with least amount of pain possible. Best trip to a dentist ever!
Young professionals and very knowledgeable of patients care and concerns. I was very satisfied with Dr. B!! I highly recommend her..
My children and I have been patients there for almost 10 years. The staff are wonderful and always take great care of us.
I love this place, the staff is extremely nice and friendly. Very helpful. The ladies at the front desk always have a smile on and that is very welcoming. Danielle is one of a kind, treats you like family and always so upbeat. I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking for somewhere to call “your dental office”.
Office staff, assistants, and Dr. Rausch are all courteous and take time out of their day to check on patients.
Rebecca and Danielle were extremely nice. I felt welcomed as soon as I entered the office. Front office staff was great. Dr. Perez was patient, informative, and very friendly.
All of the staff is very friendly. I love Dr. Grant he is the best. Offering Dentrite is also a big reasonI, When I retired, I lost dental insurance when I left my job. My hygienist mentioned Dentrite to me a gave me a pamphlet. I took the plan and it has saved me and my husband quite a bit of money.
You make the entire process easy, quick, friendly and affordable.
Dr. Grant/Conger has served my family for over 20 years.
Amazing experience. The staff is very hospitable, and extremely confident in their work. That confidence is backed by the quality.
I like the way Dental One take care of my teeth and the customer service that is always rendered. Thanks for your service!
I had lost my step-dad and flushed my partial in the same morning. I arrived at the office to see if I could get another made. I was told they could fit me in at 1:00pm …. that is when the events took a toll on me I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes, and told the the story of my morning. One of Dr. Sweening’s assistants (Kacy) heard this and the next thing I know is they take…
Great services and less painful experience than I normal have. Front teeth work is not pleasant but it was bearable thanks to Dr. Gessling.
Exceptional service. Everyone is very professional and focused on their particular jobs. Office & rooms always very clean.
Excellent service and consideration. Dr. Hardwick was so pleasant and knowledgeable. Very satisfied with the outcome.
Everyone is very professional, love that. Dr. Perez made me feel very comfortable, feel better about going to the dentist now.
Friendly atmosphere and appointment times are with no long waiting.
Patricia, Janet, and Dr. Carden took excellent care of me from start to completion. My needs were taken care of above and beyond. I really appreciated the attention given to each step in the process. Thanks again team.
Great staff and service. We have been coming here for over 30 years. Thanks for taking care of us over the years!
Dr Perez and his staff are professional and extremely courteous and kind. There are no hidden fees. You get the feeling that they truly care. I will not go any where else
Best. Dental practice. Ever!! This is the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff is Amazing and make you feel right at home.

Everyone was extremely nice from the time I walked in. I’ve never experience a public place where everyone smiles and says “Hello” I came to bring my sister but I’m going to make me an appointment now. Love it and looking forward to Dental One taking care of my dental needs.
I started off going to the Fayetteville location and had to change locations only because it was too far from where I work and lived, but now I’m at the Marietta location and I have been receiving the same great services. And Uma is my favorite she educate you on what you are getting and what she is going to be doing to your teeth she is quick, but she makes sure that she takes care of your teet…
I have been a patient of this Dental practice for about 20 years. I have never had a bad experience with the staff, technicians, the Doctors, or the facility. I have always been treated with respect, genuine concern for my feelings and dental procedures, and the doctors have been very good at providing detail information and answering all of my questions relating to a dental procedure. I have a gr…
Dr. Perez was amazing. I’m normally anxious about having dental work done. I needed to replace old fillings that had fallen out and found him through the positive reviews online. He was very professional, considerate, and took the time to ensure I had a good experience. His staff is super friendly. This was my very first PAIN FREE dental experience. Will definitely be making him my regular d…
The staff was so gracious and courteous. It was my first visit. As I witnessed them interact with other patrons I could tell they were very personable and knew the patients. Just a friendly staff!!
This was my first time at this location and it was great. It’s clean and the customer service was good. My new hygienist Toni was great!

God bless the staff members and doctors, because I don’t mind go…
I took my sister who is 70 years old and gets around in a wheel chair to Dental One for a dental appointment. She had been having severe pain in her jaw from a tooth extraction over 9 months ago. Needless to say, my sister wasn’t excited about visiting another dental office. Dental One gave my sister and I a “Chick-fil-A” experience in a dental Office. The customer service and treatment were…
Friendly and professional staff. They make me feel comfortable.
I called for an immediate appt. due to extreme pain the night before. They accommodated perfectly. I was treated like a preferred client even though I had never been there before. Everyone from the front desk to the Dr. who saw me was friendly, professional, listened intently and advised in detail what I needed to do. I will definitely be returning.
All staff were professional, efficient, and customer friendly.
This offers a very good service. They have a very good dentist on board, and an excellent hygienist as well (Jessica).
I know going to the dentist can be a daunting task but I always have a great experience at this location.
Real friendly staff
Appointments are on schedule. I was a little nervous this time. Kesha and Dr. Washington made me feel very comfortable.
I was treated like a human being, with care, respect and dignity! I am completely satisfied with the service from making my appointment by phone, to checking out. My hygienist was gentle and thorough and Dr. Jo was a gem! Thank you for your professionalism!
Very friendly staff. They made the dental process easy for my family and I.
I’ve been coming here since middle school, (maybe 15-16 years ago), I’ve always had a good experience (well the best you can have at a dentists office lol). The staff is great and the dentists are awesome!
Always a wonderful job. Thanks!
I am very please with Dental One at Eagles Landing. They did a phenomenal job with my extraction for my wisdom teeth. Dr.Perez is a professional expert! He was definitely quick and I felt no pain when he did my extraction. The WHOLE staff is pretty much perfect! I highly recommend this dentistry!

Got in the same day I made my appointment and that was very helpful to me because I never know when taking off from my job is a good time.
Overall a great experience at this office! All of the staff Members were Very nice and helpful! I had so many questions and Jessica was able to answer all of them!
The dentist really knows what he is doing, Mr. Everett’s staff takes the time to make certain everything is correct and accurate so you can be in and out!
I have always been afraid of dentist.. Hence the reason I always put stuff off until the pain hit. However, o came across Dental ONE and from the receptionist, like Phyllis, to the doctors, they were all very nice. Ty, the dental assistant, always put me at ease and helped me to work through my fears. The doctors also put me at ease. And as far as the billing went, they always helped me to decide…
I went yesterday to practice an extraction, new patient …. and I can tell you that I am a very fearful person for dentists, get super nervous and even crying … The treatment of the Assistant and Dr. Perez, was extraordinary! They had a lot of patience with me and the procedure was very fast … the office staff also very attentive and professional .. I recommend this dental office…
The experience was wonderful from the appointment setting through checkout with Ms. Mary. Dr. Sabur was so nice and gentle. Darlene was a pleasure to be around. Everyone made me feel comfortable. My entire family will make this our permanent dental home!
Great doctor and administrators great work
I have been going to dental one and associates for years. Doctor McMillan has been my dentist and she’s always done a great job. The tech’s and other associates there are very professional and I’ve never had an issue with them. Great place to be.
All staff were professional, efficient, and customer friendly.
I rarely go to the dentist because I can not stand all the drilling and noise that reverberates in my head. Recently a tooth that has been bad for many years decides to ache!! Had to have it extracted. Dr. Wheeless did a fantastic job, both with the necessary shots and removing the tooth. I didn’t feel anything!!! So glad I decided to go the Dental One. I have several dental issues to take c…
I went in for a cleaning and Ooma explained everything she was doing and going to do. I appreciate that.
I must say that my experience here from day one has been nothing short of amazing. From the front desk to the back, all of the staff, Dr. Perez, just awesome people. Dr. Perez extracted my wisdom tooth and I have yet to feel pain. I have not had take the pain med prescribed and it’s been almost 24 hours since the procedure. Everyone is so nice, warm and friendly. I feel so blessed to have a…
Dr Wheeless and her assistant made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions.
I can appreciate a dentist that takes pride in their work. I tried this office because of the reviews and I glad I did. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.
My appointment was at 6 p.m. on a bad weather night, but they knew they needed to seem my issue and didn’t hesitate to make the earliest appointment possible. I really appreciate how they always accommodate me. Once, I had an appointment at 7 a.m.! It was very helpful because of my new employment at that time. I have seen the oral surgeon before, also who was amazing. He was so good at what…
I’ve been using this office since I was around 11 years old. Love the people there.
The staff is always very professional. My son actually enjoys going to the dentist for his routine check ups.
Best dental office I’ve ever been to
Wonderful staff and they made my experience a great one.
I had a great experience.The employees are great.Great timing,the manager is awesome. Sima the hygienist did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth.Everything went good thanks alot you guys.
The office has a lively environment. The staff I encountered were nice, hospitable, and made me feel comfortable. I also appreciated that I was kept aware of what the assistant, hygienist, and dentist were doing and why they were doing it.
This was my first cavity filling in approximately 20 years. I was pretty nervous about it to be honest. Thankfully, the dental assistant (i don’t remember her name, but she was very sweet) as well as Dr. Owens were both quite reassuring and comforting to me, and they answered all of my questions and concerns fully and graciously. For this, I am deeply grateful.
Professionalism of staff and patient care.
Good service and professional
Very genuine and friendly. Also I felt like I was at home and relaxed among friends or family. The dental assistants along with the others that worked there were exceptional. I would recommend anyone to this dental office.
Pleasant environment with very nice staff

I have always hated going to the dentist officee, but my experience at Dental One changed all of that. Everyone is so nice. And I need to give a special shoutout to Tyrone—not only did he make me feel comfortable, he actually had me laughing the entire time. I would recommend this office to anyone.
A customer now for 12 years; Won’t go anywhere else. :)
Got in the same day I made my appointment and that was very helpful to me because I never know when I’m going to be off.
