Kids’ Checkup and cleaning at Pearlfection – Mom and Dad, now that the school year is under way and you are through that first crazy week, take a breath and next give us a call to get the whole family in for cleanings and dental checkups. PearlFection Dentistry in Urbana and Frederick is one of the few practices in the region with 16 operating rooms. Why is that important for a busy family? Because it means your entire family can come in and all be seen at once, in and out in 1 hour. Of course, times and availability are limited but we bend over backwards to accommodate your busy schedule and with 11 doctors on staff, including Dr Leslie Oaks, a board-certified pediatric dentist, we can take care of both the simple and most complicated children dental cases.
PearlFection Dentistry adds 2nd Oral Surgeon – We already had one of the best oral surgeons in the Delmarva region in Dr Brian Chang, Board-Certified Oral Surgeon, and word must have gotten out because we got almost too busy. At that point, the doctors and management made the decision to begin searching for another oral surgeon to compliment Dr Chang. PearlFection is proud to announce that we have recruited Dr Leo Perez, Board Certified Oral Surgeon and Board-Certified General Surgeon. That’s right, not only is Dr Perez a dentist, but he’s also an MD. And it doesn’t stop there. Dr Perez is the head surgeon at Walter Reed Hospital, so when we say we got a great oral surgeon to compliment our team, we did, with one of the best oral surgeons in the region. Both Dr Chang and Dr Perez will perform wisdom tooth extractions, biopsy, bone graphs, dental implant placements. Both Dr Chang and Dr Perez are authorized to perform IV Sedation at the Thomas Johnson facility in Frederick Maryland.
PearlFection Dentistry now offers IV Sedation for both Wisdom Teeth extractions as well as restorative dentistry – If you are afraid of the dentist and simply want to be put to sleep while the procedures are done, ask us about IV Sedation. IV Sedation is offered at PearlFection Dentistry for both children and adults. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation (Valium) and of course local anesthesia. We encourage all patients to discuss with their dentist which, if any, sedation option is best for them.
PearlFection Dentistry Hires Pedodontist (children’s dentist) – PearlFection is pleased to announce that we have hired Dr Leslie Oakes, Board-Certified Pediatric dentist. Dr Oakes comes to us from Walter Reed Hospital. Dr Oakes will perform anything from extractions to cleaning for kids and is fully versed in sedation for children. Patients from both Frederick and Urbana are welcome to schedule with Dr Oakes.
PearlFection Dentistry Hires Prosthodontist (Denture Specialist) – Pearlfection Dentistry in Frederick and Urbana is pleased to announce that we have hired Dr Amos Chi – Board-Certified Prosthodontist. Dr Chi specializes in dentures, including implant supported dentures. The beauty of having implant supported dentures done at PearlFection Dentistry is that our dentist form a team, where the best specialist does his or her part. Dr Chi will act as the quarterback and will team up with either PearlFection’s oral surgeons Dr Brian Chang or Dr Leo Perez or PearlFection’s periodontist, Dr Ashley Seals, Board Certified Periodontist, who will do the dental implants and the teeth extractions. Once the implants are placed, Dr Chi will secure the denture to the implants. Sometimes this can be done in one day. If you have been considering dentures or implant supported dentures, please schedule a consultation. Dr Chi’s team can review with you which denture option is best for your situation and figure out a good path forward.
PearlFection Dentistry offers free Orthodontic evaluation for all kids – If you are considering braces for your children PearlFection Dentistry in Frederick and Urbana Maryland is pleased to offer free 30-minute orthodontic consultations with our orthodontist Dr Stephen Tigani. During these sessions, Dr Tigani will create a personal plan for each child, talk to you about treatment options, including Invisalign or other clear aligner options or discuss if standard braces are a better alternative.
