    WHAT IS A PERIODONTIST?

    A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.

    The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school.

    By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Ferrin can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.

      For many years I was foolish enough to avoid dentists while working overseas. On returning home I continued to avoid them primarily because I was afraid of what I'd be told. Of course it can't be put off forever and at my first dental appointment I was referred to Dr.Ferrin for periodontal care. I was terrified, but it was so much easier than I was expecting. The staff were all friendly and helped me relax. They were patient, made sure I was comfortable, and never once made me feel guilty or stupid for not attending to my mouth sooner. Dr.Ferrin was very thorough and took the time to explain what he was doing, what he found, and what my options were. There was no rush or pressure for me to make a decision right away. Ultimately a care plan was agreed upon and the work started. There was a lot to be done, but it's now almost complete. I'm feeling good and best of all I have my smile back. Thank you Dr.Ferrin and all your staff for your excellent work and your caring attitude.read more

      My experience with Dr. Ferrin and his team was great. He has exceptional bedside manner and my gum graft was as painless as it could be. The only downside is he’s a Kentucky Wildcat fan, but I would still see him again and recommend him to all my friends and family.read more

      Dr. Ferrin is a godsend. I switched over to him after an discouraging experience with the last periodontist that I met with. I was really nervous at first, but Dr. Ferrin and his staff were very kind and comforting towards me. They went out of their way to make me feel at ease. I’ve only had one appointment with Dr. Ferrin and I trust him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone if you have to have a dental procedure because he is the perfect example of a medical professional in that area.read more

      You can feel comfortable and secure that you are receiving the best treatment possible with Dr. Ferrin and his amazing team. I have needed multiple procedures, and have not always had the best experiences in a dental chair, -therefore I do know the difference. I instantly felt at ease when I walked into Dr. Ferrin's office. He is professional, sensitive, and shows a genuine passion for his work. I have never experienced a "specialist" who truly thinks in the grand concept for the health of his patients, instead of just completing the task he is trained to perform. This passion and professionalism trickles down to all the staff in his office. They are all friendly and upbeat, which further exudes that feeling of confidence and comfort; and are obviously happy to be a part of his team. They are well-trained in explaining a specific and detailed financial plan when necessary, and are always available to answer questions. THEY MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A PERSON, -NOT JUST A PATIENT. Dr. Ferrin does exceptional work, is empathetic, and we are truly blessed to have his service in our area. I felt compelled to share my positive experiences online for those who are apprehensive or just looking for re-assurance to get the best periodontal care possible. Dr. John Ferrin and his staff are awesome!read more
