If Dr. Nevins recommends a pocket depth reduction treatment, it means that your pockets have reached a depth that makes it impossible for you and your hygienist to properly clean your teeth and maintain your oral health. Today most surgical treatment of periodontal disease can be managed with minimally invasive laser therapy (LANAP™)

As ongoing maintenance therapy is crucial for our patients to sustain long-term oral and overall health and to help us identify any new developments and areas of concern, Dr. Nevins will determine whether your cleanings should be performed by our specially trained hygienists. You may come to our practice for all cleanings and checkups or split routine visits between your regular dentist and our practice.


Dr. Nevins did a thorough review of my medical history and then gave me an exam. We were able to define a first step that made sense. He also put to rest some of the fears that had been caused by the first provider.

I came to Dr. Nevins for a second opinion and was very impressed with the level of detail explaining the options and the pros/cons. They spent a lot of time trying to get to the right answer and to make sure I understood the issues.
