Dr Linden is a caring talented and very experienced periodontist. Due to gum problems probably stemming from poor genes I have had to see a number of periodontists. He is hands down the very best. He takes the pain out of dentistry.
If you think you might have periodontal disease, you are probably right!

I had periodontal laser surgery completed for my gums and I'm happy to tell everyone that the procedure and outcome were not only painless but the areas healed super fast, and I feel like I my gums have been restored to the healthy state they once were. Dr. Linden is the best and I highly recommend him for all your periodontal needs. He will truly get you back to where you should be, healthy! His assistant Patti helped me through every step and is kind and compassionate.

Dr. Linden has done an incredible job in giving my oral health new life. The laser used to treat my peridontitis was virtually painless. Dr. Linden explained everything ahead of time and there were no surprises. I would highly recommend his services.
No Pain

Dr. Linden was extremely caring and gentle with me. I had the LANAP procedure, which is a treatment that uses a laser to treat periodontal disease. I can't believe how painless it was. Aside from a few injections of a local anesthetic which I barely noticed, there was literally no pain both during and after the gum surgery. It is hard to call it surgery because there was no pain and no bleeding that I saw. Dr Linden and his assistant Patti could not have been nicer or more efficient. I highly recommend them.
