Our Team

At Central Ohio Periodontics, your healthy smile is always our goal. More than that, your oral health and smile are our top priority. We’re happy you’re looking to take an important step forward to improved periodontal health. We strive to provide each of our patients with comprehensive, personal, and gentle care. This is because our mission is to help our patients live healthier lives.

Dr. Fred Sakamoto and his team specialize in implantology and periodontics. Our focus on non-invasive and surgical treatment of dental implants and gums enables us to replace one or more missing teeth in one day. We work closely with your referring dentist and make sure your treatment plan is a good fit for your health goals. But we don’t require a referral from your dentist to visit our office. Please feel free to schedule an appointment at any time.

Our team of experts, each with decades of experience, enjoys helping patients with every aspect of their dental treatment. We enjoy meeting and caring for new patients every day as well as attending continuing education classes in the dental field to keep us sharp! No matter your dental need, our team’s goal is to help you achieve a healthy smile.
