Dr. Mintzer practiced general dentistry from 1988 to 1997, prior to completing his 3 year, full-time periodontal residency at USC. Periodontists are dental specialists that place implants and treat the gums and jaw bones. They have 7 years of university training to remove infections, place implants for missing teeth or improve the conditions for both teeth and implants. Most problems associated with the periphery, or supporting border of the teeth, gum and jaw bones are treated by periodontists. Often periodontists are required to remove, or extract teeth when necessary. Overall, periodontists create the foundation for healthy, esthetic teeth and implants. Dr. Mintzer is board certified by the American Academy of Periodontology and taught surgery and treatment planning at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry for 12 years. His office provides focused and complete examinations, "cleanings" of teeth and implants, xrays, and implant and periodontal treatment. We also provide imaging services for outside dentists and specialists seeking 3d data or radiographic interpretation of their patient's condition.
