The Expert in Minimally Invasive Periodontal Treatments

Frederic J. Norkin, DMD 

Board-certified periodontist Dr. Frederic Norkin is one of the few periodontists in South Florida who is certified in conscious sedation, providing even the most apprehensive, “dentally phobic” patients a sense of calm while having the opportunity to receive a variety of treatments, including implant placement and minimally invasive bone and soft tissue regeneration. Some of his specialties include Yomi® Robot-Assisted Dental Surgery; minimally invasive surgical techniques for the treatment of periodontal disease such as Pinhole® and tunneling, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), fiberoptic bone regeneration, surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment, the esthetics of beautiful smiles, and the immediate loading of dental implants. Overall, he and his partners focus on problem-solving even the most complex cases.

Q: What sets your practice apart from others?

A: At South Florida Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we have the expertise, knowledge, and technology to take care of your dental needs while minimizing pain, aggravation, and risk—the negatives associated with having periodontal and implant treatment. Infection control is constantly our top priority—and even more important in times of stress, medical challenges and in the age of COVID-19. 

Q: How do you implement infection prevention?

A: Our practice developed a multi-tiered approach to managing potentially hazardous or contagious particles and aerosols in the office that greatly exceeds official recommendations. These include the use of special virus-killing mouth rinses, air filtration systems, electric hand pieces to reduce aerosols, and decontamination protocols throughout the office.

Q: How are you managing patients with dental implant complications?

A: While dental implants remain among the most predictable medical procedures, there is an increasing number of complications, exacerbated by more non-surgical specialists placing dental implants. Our role as periodontists is to help patients whose implants are losing bone. Fortunately, we have a number of techniques and tools at our disposal to help these patients manage or repair ailing dental implants.
