Introduction and Mission

Periodontists are dentists that specialize in treating gum disease and regenerating lost gum tissue and bone.  Periodontics is recognized by the American Dental Association as a dental specialty, and its residencies are accredited by the joint ADA/U.S. Department of Education Commission on Dental Accreditation.

Our mission is to eliminate destructive gum disease from our patients. Gum disease is the leading reason adults lose their teeth. Our goal is to give our patients a healthy, functional, esthetic and comfortable mouth.  We want our patients to keep their NATURAL teeth. And, we want to teach you how to keep your mouth healthy.

Our practice is deliberately kept small and personable. When Dr. Boden accepts you as a patient, you can be sure you will be made to feel like a member of our dental family.  We work together with your dentist, physician, and other dental specialists, as needed, in a partnership to provide you with the best possible care.

You are invited to join us by referral from your general dentist, another dental specialist, or your physician.  We are especially pleased to welcome you by referral from one of our patients.  You, as the patient, may also contact us directly. For seasonal residents, we specialize in coordinating care with your northern dentist or periodontist.

What To Expect

​We try to see all patients on time and request that you extend the same courtesy to us. When you enter, you will be greeted by a member of our staff. We ask that you sign in and have your completed paperwork, driver's license, and insurance card (if applicable) ready for the staff member. Once your chart has been prepared another staff member will direct you to an exam room where you will be prepped to see Dr. Boden.

For most patients, the first visit is considered a consult. Dr. Boden will review your x-rays, go over your prior dental and medical history, examine your mouth, talk about your current dental issue, and then give you the treatment options. We will always strive to give you the best oral health for your dollar, but we understand that regaining your oral health can sometimes be costly. That is why Dr. Boden and his staff always carefully review your wishes, your treatment options, and how you can finance them. We will always be as up front with you as possible.
