As one half of the Center of Endodontics, Periodontics and Implantology, Dr. Robertson received her bachelor’s degree and dental degree simultaneously from the University of Missouri-Kansas City as part of an accelerated degree program. She worked as a general dentist for three years before returning to the University of Missouri for an advanced education program in periodontics. According to Dr. Robertson, her experience in general dentistry has enhanced her ability to serve her patients as a periodontist.
“Having a background in general dentistry allows me to broaden my perspective a bit,” she says. “A comprehensive approach to oral health care yields a properly phased treatment plan for the patient.”
Patients of Dr. Robertson can rest assured that they are always getting comprehensive care, as she is committed to making certain her patients are aware of any potential problems they may have, be it a crack in a tooth or a suspicious spot on the tongue. The consummate professional, she is board-certified and a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, American Association of Periodontology, American Board of Periodontology, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and North Texas Dental Society. Always striving for excellence, Dr. Robertson has completed numerous hours of continuing education in aesthetic periodontal surgery and implant dentistry.
In addition to providing treatment of gum disease, much of Dr. Robertson’s surgical practice is cosmetic, including procedures such as gum lifts, gum grafts to treat recession, and dental implants. Robertson inherited an eye for design and her skilled ability to use her hands from both her mother, who could design and sew just about anything, and from her father, a skilled carpenter. As an adult, she applied these talents, along with her love for science, into periodontics, and loves that her chosen career allows her to combine both art and science. However, perhaps the most rewarding aspect of her job is helping people. When someone has lost their teeth in a car accident or is self conscious about a gummy smile, Dr. Robertson loves the joy that comes from restoring their smiles and self esteem.
