Dr. Phillips Attends Southern Academy of Periodontology Meeting

Dr. William Claiborne, Dr. Jennifer Boyland, and Dr. Douglas Phillips attended the Southern Academy of Periodontology annual meeting in Naples, Florida on June 21-22, 2019. Drs. Claiborne and Boyland of Biltmore Periodontics in Asheville, NC are both specialists in treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants to provide support for missing teeth. Dr. Phillips of Phillips & Schmitt, DDS in Asheville, NC  works closely with them to plan restorative care for their mutual patients as a co-treatment approach to quality care. The topic for this year’s lecture was “Dental Implant Complications, Prevention, and Treatment“, given by Dr. Stuart Froum, a world-class expert on this topic. It is estimated that at least 10% of all dental implants placed have complications that need to be managed by the experts in order to achieve optimal oral health for patients that have dental implants.
