About Oks, Tatyana
There are few periodontal and dental implant practices anywhere that bring to the table the decades of experience of both doctors and staff that River Valley Periodontics & Implant Dentistry offers. With over 70 years’ combined experience in periodontal and implant therapy, it is difficult to find a clinical situation we have not encountered and treated successfully. Continually striving to provide each and every patient the finest, gentlest, most up-to-date and quality treatment in a caring environment is our number one goal. With that in mind, we work very closely with our referring doctors in a team approach to total patient care. When appropriate, laser therapy and other minimally-invasive techniques are offered for a gentle approach to the treatment of periodontal diseases. And for apprehensive patients, various forms of sedation are available to make the process painless.
