Welcome

Welcome to our practice website. We congratulate you on taking the first step towards better health. At the Okanagan Periodontal & Implant Centre your oral health is our first priority. Please utilize this website as a resource. It will help you to better understand your course of treatment, and answer any questions related to periodontal and implant therapy.

Dr. Gainey is a certified specialist in periodontics. We specialize  in both the conservative and surgical treatment of gum diseases, including cosmetic procedures to aesthetically enhance your smile, as well as dental implants that can replace single or multiple missing teeth.

Although no one likes to go to the doctor or dentist, we strive to make your visits with us as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We strongly believe that our patient’s comfort is an important part of quality periodontal and implant care.

Dr. Gainey believes that your right to choose a dentist is an important freedom. We work closely with your dentist, but a referral by a dentist is not required to visit our office. We also welcome referrals from patients and friends of the practice.

We are extraordinarily proud of our team, which is comprised of caring and dedicated professionals. They ensure that the patient’s clinical and administrative needs are met as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We are here to listen to your questions and concerns and to help provide solutions leading to your improved health. Please do not hesitate to e-mail us at reception@okperio.ca, or call us at Kelowna Office Phone Number 250-763-1111, if you have any questions regarding your care.

What Is A Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) diseases, and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.

The Canadian Dental Association recognizes Periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school.

By choosing a specialist, you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal diseases, and expertise in the placement of dental implants. In addition, Dr. Gainey can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
