Dr. Thousand IV's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Thousand IV "Education I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Masters Degree and Specialty Training in Periodontics from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Turns out, I was pretty excited about implant dentistry and bone grafting procedures, so I stuck around a little longer for my certificate in Implantology after residency. I really felt like doing some extra complex implant prosthodontics and restorative dentistry would make it easier to work with my referral colleagues. After the fellowship, I decided to take it one step further and obtain my ABP Board Certification. Research | Grants | Awards: I'd like to describe myself primarily as a clinician… However, I'd be a liar if I said I didn't get a strange sense of satisfaction out of answering research questions that occur in my everyday practice of periodontics. I'm pretty sure I've always been a little twisted this way. In October of 2012 I received the 2012 Student Research Grant Award (from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Research Foundation) to support an inflammatory cytokine study around different implant abutment designs. At the time we were super interested in the ability for specific surface topography of abutments to promote gingival fibroblast attachment. During my residency I tackled 3 research projects related to bone grafting after extractions, cement remnants around implant crowns, and the effects of extraction and ridge preservation on the sinus floor topography. In fact, in February of 2016 I was awarded the John F. Prichard Graduate Periodontal Research Award for my sinus pneumatization study. The funny part is, I just did this study to find a way to reduce additional post-extraction augmentation procedures needed to place an implant! Teaching | Private Practice I currently live in Florida but I make a monthly commute back to Colorado to hang out with the Grad Perio Residents, my previous director Dr. Chuck Powell and the incredible staff of instructors who put up with my shenanigans for a solid four years. I was given such an incredible education I feel obligated to harass them even more! As a bonus they let me tag along in literature discussions so that I keep my noggin sharp! Perio Love | Skill-set I love perio. I live and breathe this stuff. This really allows me to offer a wide range of surgical capabilities to my patients. These include dental implants, guided dental implant surgery, advanced bone grafting (vertical and horizontal), soft tissue grafting for function and cosmetics, 3rd molar extractions, IV sedation and a boat load of cheesy dental humor. All crummy jokes aside, I am set on providing only the most incredible and reliable results to my patients. Life | Stuff I'm married… to someone WAY cooler than me. I don't know how I fooled her into this relationship but she has stuck it out with me this far! Jenni and I moved to St. Augustine Florida back in January of 2016. It's a cool place to live I'll tell you that! The people have treated us well and the rich history combined with a laid back beach vibe have kept us entertained. I'm currently starting to snag some waves and dodge some sharks!"

My dentist referred me to Dr. Thousand for a gum graft procedure. The office staff is great and Dr. Thousand and dental assistants are caring and have a great chair side manner. My gum graft went smoothly and has healed without any problems.
