He completed a General Practice Residency at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Miami, Florida where he received extensive training in hospital and operating room dentistry, as well as invaluable experience in the treatment and management of medically compromised and “dentally-phobic” patients. These experiences benefit his patients to this day. Dr. Norkin then received a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Periodontology from Nova Southeastern University where he remained as an adjunct professor for more than 12 years, all the while maintaining his full-time private practice. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI).Dr. Norkin is one of the few periodontists in South Florida that is certified in conscious sedation, allowing him to treat even the most apprehensive patients. Dr. Norkin is an accomplished author, publishing original research on a variety of clinical topics including early and immediate loading of dental implants, regenerative surgery, complex treatment planning, and cone beam CT-scans among others. Dr. Norkin shares his expertise with the dental community by lecturing on complex subjects that aid in providing patients everywhere the highest standard of treatment. His special areas of interest and treatment include minimally invasive surgical techniques for the treatment of periodontal disease, bone and soft tissue regeneration, the esthetics of beautiful smiles, and early and immediate loading of dental implants.
