Our Difference

We are proud to be unique at the Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry.

Focusing on Your Oral Health

Health, excellent function, beautiful aesthetics, and longevity.

Have you been referred to our office? We work closely with your general dentist to obtain your dental goals.

Your general dentist may have asked you to schedule an appointment with us or requested that you see a periodontist. If so, then you are in the right place! Dr. Laro and Dr. Poston are both expert periodontists with years of experience caring for the health of our patients’ teeth and gums.

As a periodontist and implant dentistry office, we help you keep your teeth. If that is not possible, we replace your missing teeth with beautiful, long-term solutions. We achieve this through the use of modern technology, expert techniques, and specialist training. This trifecta allows us to practice high-quality dental care that not only produces amazing results but also makes your visit more comfortable and efficient.

When you visit the Center for Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, you will enjoy:

  • Knowing that we care about you as a person

  • Open and honest communication

  • A comfortable atmosphere

  • Superior periodontics and implant dentistry

  • Predictable and effective care
