Give Teeth a Chance! | Dr. Preety Desai
Join Dr. Preety Desai for a facility tour and discussion on periodontal practices.
Her passion is to demystify and bring to earth the truth about gum disease (which 87% of all people have). It is treated today without scary scalpels and sutures and is definitely not the way it was done in our parent's era! There is no excuse NOT to keep your teeth today! A lost tooth is a lost body part!
The health of your gums determines the health and longevity and success of implants if you have to lose a tooth.
Questions and second opinions welcomed.
Participants will learn about:
1. Education on what a periodontist is - how it is different from a dentist and why would I need one?
2. Information on the latest innovative technologies in dentistry to save teeth; lasers, grafting, etc.
3. Information on the real truth on dental implants - are they guaranteed forever?
Dr. Preety Desai is the first Canadian periodontist implementing dental lasers into her periodontal practice since 2006. She has called Kamloops her home since 1996 and has loved raising her two boys here! Dr Desai has received degrees from all 3 major Canadian Universities: U of T and McGill University prior to specializing in Periodontics at the UBC. She is the only periodontist in Canada with an MSc in Laser Dentistry from Germany and is clinical associate professor at University of British Columbia.
