Specialized Training

Periodontics is a recognized dental speciality by the American Dental Association.
A periodontist is a dentist who has completed 3 year of additional training after dental school. Periodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.

Dr. Harbinder S Bal went to Boston University School of Dental Medicine for his Dental School and his speciality training in Periodontics and Dental Implant Surgery. He has learned and mastered procedures such as periodontal surgery, gum and bone grafting including sinus lifts, crown lengthening, cosmetic gum surgery to enhance the appearance of teeth and much more.

Dr. Bal is Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Board Certification is awarded to those periodontists, who pass both the written and extensive oral examination. To maintain the diplomate status, recertification is required every 6 years.
