Columbia Periodontal Associates is the largest periodontal practice in Columbia with an established tradition of excellence for more than 32 years. They have four locations throughout the Midlands to best serve you. Drs. Ayers, Hedgpeth, McEntire, Holden, and Park are board-certified diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology. All doctors have extensive experience in the placement of dental implants as well as the cosmetic and conservative treatment of periodontal disease. Their goal is to provide optimal care to all of their patients in the most caring and efficient manner while always working closely with your general dentist. They stay progressive with their detailed approach to dental implant treatment, incorporating pre-surgical planning using cone-beam CT imaging, digital scanners, guided surgery, and platelet-rich fibrin for alveolar bone reconstruction.
