*Please be aware that we have a 48 hour cancellation policy*Dr. Navid Rahmani received his doctoral degree from the Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine. Following graduation, Dr. Rahmani remained at Stony Brook for another three years and received certification in the specialty area of Periodontology. He has extensive training in all phases of modern periodontal therapy including periodontal plastic surgery, bone grafting, implantology and, of course, what many people refer to as “gum disease”. Based on his accomplishments, Dr. Rahmani was awarded the John Oppie McCall Award given annually by Stony Brook to someone demonstrating exemplary dedication and proficiency in the art and science of Periodontology.Dr. Rahmani is a tireless advocate for good periodontal health and with good reason since its recent links with heart disease and its complications. He is dedicating his professional career to having his patients maintain proper oral care while also allowing them to create the healthy and esthetic smile they desire. Today there are many options for patients that did not exist in the past and these very options can often lead to confusion for the patient. Dr. Rahmani’s philosophy is to sit down with each patient and explain those options using the most up to date diagnostic tools available and then provide the best treatment to suit that patient’s particular need. Saving the natural teeth is always his first choice but if that is just not possible he will always present the most modern alternatives available for his patient.
