Dr. Douglas Wendt Jr, DDS
My education to become a periodontist started when I attended Virginia Tech where I received (2) Bachelor degrees, one in International Relations and the other in Biology. While at Virginia Tech, in the biology program, I was selected to be a team member for a research program in Antarctica (South Pole). The research there included biological and chemical analysis of lakes and glaciers within the remote interior of the continent. After graduation from college, I attended the Medical College of Virginia where I received my dental degree (D.D.S.). I then attended Temple University School of Dentistry for my post-doctorate degree in Periodontics. Upon graduation, I moved to Tampa to start my periodontal practice. There have been many innovative advancements in my specialty over the years which I have incorporated into my periodontal practice. Our focus is to continue to provide the most up-to-date technological services in the field of periodontal therapy. Recent developments in LASER therapy are a valuable, viable option to traditional treatment providing less downtime, less pain, and quicker recovery. I fully understand that a visit to a periodontist is a commitment that makes most people very anxious. I promise to treat you as I would my own family and strive to make your visits as comfortable as possible.

in Riverview, Fl |
I found Dr. Wendt to be very good, patient, very nice. However, I have an infection in bone around implants that Florida Blue dental will pay nothing and they don't care about my health. Just to clean out the infection is $1,300. The woman in the office does not have patience for people that do not have the money. I did tell her that I opened a care credit accout of $800 and she never got back with me. Shame on them!!! They sent me on my wsy, too bad for you!!!
Tricia, We apologize for this and wish to discuss options for a positive resolution! Please contact me, personally, at Dr. Wendt's office as soon as possible. Thank you, Cheryl
