Dr. Wendt Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wendt Jr "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. "

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.
