Georgia Implant Dentist
Dr. Padolsky has been an Georgia implant dentist for 13 years and has practiced Dentistry in Atlanta, Georgia for 20 years. He has been doing dental implants in Atlanta, Georgia since 1988 and was among the graduates of the first university based dental implant continuing education program in 1988 when he completed the Medical College of Georgia's Implant Maxicourse. In addition, Dr. Padolsky completed implant training with the Alabama Implant Study Group in the mid 1980's. These studies made him one of the first implant dentists in Georgia .
In addition to implant surgical placement, this Georgia implant dentist is also able to design, create, and place the crown and bridge work that goes on top of dental implants. Not every implant dentist in Georgia can do both phases of implant reconstruction. This allows for his patients to enjoy being able to go to one office for all their dental implant care.
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants is to schedule a Dental Implant consultation with our Georgia implant dentist by calling 404-874-7428. A recent panoramic x-ray is needed to determine how much bone you have available to support dental implants. Please inform the receptionist when you call if this will be needed.
