With the recent addition of a board-certified periodontist, Dr Ashley Seals, Orthodontist Stephen Tigani, Board Certified Oral Surgeon, Brian Chang, and Endodontist, Pratik Patel, as well as cosmetic and restorative dentists, Dr Stringer and Lawson, PearlFection Dentistry has become a unique practice in the state of Maryland. Not only can PearlFection Dentistry provide basic dental services like cleanings, emergency dental care, pediatric and kid friendly dental care, fillings and crowns and bridges, but they can also provide specialty like dental implants, root canals, and surgical wisdom teeth extractions.

Most dentists can provide basic services but often those dentists need to send complicated cases out to a specialist. At PearlFection we are able to keep all these procedures under one roof, with our general dentists acting as quarterback and ensuring excellent start to finish attention to our patients need. Dr Stringer said “We have found that we can provide better care and better follow-up, when all our doctors can talk face to face about optimal patient care and include the patient in those discussion. Sometimes our patients might see four different doctors in one day. When a patient needs to engage multiple doctors for different procedures, I can manage it much better when all work, all the records and data is on site” “ We didn’t like it, when in the past, we would send an extraction or implant out to another oral surgeon or periodontist and the patient would come back with work being done that was “out of order”. “It resulted in patients not having treatment done in a logical order. For example, we might want to have a root canal first, to control infection, and then fillings done, then an implant. But if we told the patient to go get consultations, they might come back with an implant first. That is not an ideal chronology for maximum effective dental care. Now we can better control how and when dental procedures are done.”

Comprehensive dentistry, means Pearlfection Dentistry can see emergency cases quickly and get those patients back in quickly for the proper work or even have necessary work done the same day. Our doctors do so many of the same procedures, day after day, that they get really good at their specialty. Our oral surgeon does extractions and dental implants all day, every day. Our endodontist does root canals all day every day. Our Orthodontist does orthodontics braces or clear aligners all day every day and our Periodontist does deep cleanings and scaling and root plaining or implants all day every day. And our general doctors do fillings, crowns, bridges and see emergency dental cases all day every day. Our hygienist do cleanings all day every day. Our team gets great at their specialty and our patients benefit from the best dentistry in the State of Maryland and the best dentistry in Frederick and Urbana.

Dr. Patel - Endodontist & Root Canal Dentist in Frederick, MarylandDr Patel joined the Dental Practice of Dr Mullen and Stringer in April of 2013.  To prepare for the addition of Dr Patel, the decision was made to invest in the most modern root canal equipment on the market.  The practice purchased an advanced endodontic microscope built by Micronix and specialty endodontic drill, manufactured by WaveOne®, to ensure we had the best equipment on the market.  We also invested in digital x-ray sensors and large screen monitors and intraoral cameras, so diagnostics could be done instantaneously.  These new pieces of equipment and technology allow the doctor and his assistant to perform root canals with the most modern dental equipment and therefore give the patient the greatest prognosis of a good clinical outcome.

We asked Dr EJ Stringer why the decision was made to bring on another doctor.  She said “The decision to bring on Dr Patel was driven by our patients request to have more procedures done at the practice.  In the past, we sent out most of our root canals out to endodonists across town.  Our patients never really liked having to do that and they just felt more comfortable staying at our practice on Thomas Johnson Drive.  Now instead of going out to have root canals done, we’ll have them all performed in house.  By bringing on Dr Patel, we are able to have a specialist in the practice who is truly one of the best endodontists in the state.  Our practice and our patients are very lucky to have him”
