Have a Question for Dr. Nicky Hakimi?

Find the answer below or give us a call: 530-888-7155.

Periodontics is recognized as a dental specialty, which means a general dentist cannot simply call themselves periodontist.

To become a periodontist, a dentist must receive two to three years of additional training and education beyond dental school. Like Dr. Hakimi, periodontists become experts in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum-related disease, as well as placement of dental implants.

Your general dentist may refer you to Dr. Hakimi because:

  • They don't offer the periodontal care you need
  • Your case is too complex for their level of expertise
  • They want her trusted second opinion
  • Your gum disease has advanced too far or is not under control
  • And plenty more reasons!

Seeing a periodontist for your specialized dental care ensures you are in the best hands. Plus, Dr. Hakimi performs these types of treatments regularly, making your dental experience faster, calm, and comfortable.

We understand you may have anxiety about visiting a periodontist or the dentist in general. You are not alone!

A lot of dental anxiety or fear stems from fear of pain and the unknown. To help you break down these barriers, we:

  • Set aside time to listen to your needs, goals, and concerns
  • Clearly and openly communicate our findings, proposed treatments, and what you can expect step-by-step
  • Are transparent with costs and offer financial solutions
  • Use modern technology to make your visits faster, painless, and more effective
  • Are always gentle and will go at your pace to ensure your comfort
  • Offer sedation dentistry, in addition to anesthetics, to help you relax while receiving the care you need

Whatever it is that's holding you back or making you nervous, you can trust our team will help you through it. We truly care about you and your overall well-being and want to help by offering the best dental care and patient experience available.
