Placing dental implants is a delicate procedure, and the success depends on the skill of the doctor. The practice of implant dentistry requires expertise in planning, surgery, and tooth restoration. It is as much about art and experience as it is about science. Dr. David Pumphrey has the expertise to place implants that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Periodontists are required to complete an additional two to three years of specialized training in periodontics after they receive their doctorate from dental school. Dr. Pumphrey has received specialized, postgraduate training in the placement and maintenance of dental implants, and he has personally placed more than a thousand of them.
He is a Recognized Kois Specialist, which requires the demonstration of a comprehensive mastery in placing dental implants and in all phases of diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. In addition, Dr. Pumphrey is a Clinical Professor at the Graduate School of Periodontics at The Augusta College of Georgia Dental School.
