Wichita Periodontist Focuses on the Foundation of a Healthy Smile
Dr. Marq Sams, a Wichita periodontist, has been in the field and treating patients to healthier smiles since 2006. Dr. Sams helps patients to achieve better oral health by placing an emphasis on maintaining healthy gums. Without healthy gums, your teeth are at increased risk for damage and decay. Gum health is also linked to other systemic issues, making it important to treat any signs of disease and prevent it from progressing. Dr. Sams is passionate about improving periodontal health, and thereby better total health, for all of his patients.

Choosing a Periodontist for Dental Implants
Choosing a periodontist to develop a treatment plan for your dental implants is a smart move! Because of his dental specialization as a periodontist, Dr. Sams has received extensive training and education regarding dental implants. The American Academy of Periodontology defines a periodontist as a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Dr. Sams loves seeing how dental implants change the lives of his patients from restoring a confident smile, to restoring the functionality and chewing capability of the patient's teeth.

Our Wichita Periodontal office is equipped with the latest dental technology, including 3D digital imaging (3D CBCT), digital x-rays and treatment planning software. Our advanced equipment allows for better diagnosis and treatment planning, while also exposing you to less radiation.

From helping you to feel at ease in the waiting room to educating you about oral health, our entire staff is caring and dedicated to ensuring your comfort.
