Dr. Gilson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gilson "Dr. Gilson is a graduate of The University of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine, class of 1983. He studied at Penn as an undergraduate and received a BS in Physical Chemistry and Biochemistry, graduating cum laude. He then matriculated at the school of Dental Medicine after three years of undergraduate study; in addition to his dental degree, he spent an additional year in a general practice residency. Specialty Dental Training During his residency, he received specialty training in the fields of Periodontics (gums), prosthetics (crowns and bridges) and endodontics (root canal). It has been his guiding principle to take this multi-disciplinary approach to his practice of general dentistry. Therefore, he can offer his patients many services and procedures that would otherwise be referred to a specialist, and provide them in his office. The understanding of the interrelationships of periodontal treatment combined with prosthetic treatment to repair and replace lost teeth is a key concept to help his patients retain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. Latest Dental Technology Dr. Steven Gilson is constantly taking continuing education to upgrade his skills and knowledge to bring our patients the latest in dental technology. Our office offers a variety of services including Invisalign (invisible braces), ZOOM bleaching, non-surgical periodontal treatment, implant restorations, all porcelain crown restorations, one visit root canal, and digital radiography.

Good teeth enhance confidence and social skills."

I would no recommend this dentist to anyone....Read More
