High Standard of Patient Care - We aim to give patients the best the periodontal industry has to offer. Our Minneapolis periodontal office is equipped with the most advanced dental and periodontal technology to achieve optimal results with every type of procedure offered. From gum treatment with LANAP, to in-office Perioscope cleanings, dental implant placement, and cosmetic gum reshaping, Dr. Wilson, Dr. Kersten, and the team are prepared to offer care that provides the most benefit using the least intrusive procedure.
Education - Drs. Mark Wilson and Elias Kersten take education seriously, from patient communication to his team's development and his own continued professional pursuits. The entire team at Metropolitan Periodontists, P.A. stays informed and shares knowledge whenever possible.
Seattle Study Club - Our Doctors participate in the nationally known Seattle Study Club and we also direct a local branch for dentists and hygienists called The City of Lakes Study Club and City of Lakes Hygiene Study Club. These clubs are ongoing groups that bring in professional speakers who are experts in their field regarding both modern and traditional procedures and methodologies. These groups promote learning about dental advancements and beneficial review of tried-and-true practices.
Patient Education - Educating patients is an important aspect of every treatment plan. Effective communication using visual aids such as pictures and models, and detailing pros and cons helps patients understand their options, as well as learn about on-going care to best maintain their oral health over time. Our hygienists personally teach proper oral hygiene care, depending on patient’s individual needs. We stock TePe hygiene products and give patients personal attention to learn how to best use oral health care products at home. When we include patients in a team approach to maintenance care routines, they reap the benefits of improved dental health for a lifetime.
Uncompromising Safety - Infection control in our office is very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
A Great Patient Experience - Join us as we work together to rejuvenate your smile! Maintaining healthy teeth, gums, and a functional bite minimizes your need for further treatment. When there is a need for a multi-faceted or complex treatment plan, Dr. Wilson and Dr. Kersten are here to provide the expert care you deserve.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
