We offer a wide range of specialty services including the latest in advanced technology. Our practice emphasizes excellence in communication and encourages your active participation in treatment decisions every step of the way. We will help you make informed decisions about your dental care while striving to ensure your office visits are as comfortable as possible.


You do not require a referral from your dentist to be seen at our office. We always welcome referrals from friends and family and consider it the greatest compliment when our services are recommended. If you were referred to another periodontist but selected our office instead because we are in-network with your insurance, simply advise your dentist to forward your records and referral to us.

Dr. Indech recognizes that patients with special needs may have a more difficult time getting the dental care they need. These patients are often suffering from undiagnosed periodontal disease and tooth decay as they have difficulty caring for their teeth, see the dentist infrequently and are often not provided the day-to-day care they require by caregivers. Patients with reduced mobility, mental disability and the elderly may require modifications to our normal care. We realize that each patient is a unique individual and deserves evaluation and treatment with a thoughtful and compassionate touch.

On your first visit to our office, we will review your medical and dental history, the reason you have been referred and your expectations for treatment. A thorough examination will be performed followed by a review of our findings and presentation of our treatment recommendations.

Throughout the treatment process, we will communicate directly with your general dentist to advise of our findings and recommendations, update your progress and coordinate your continuing care. As a patient in our practice, we encourage you to call our patient care coordinators with any questions you may have regarding your consultation, treatment plan or treatment.
