We perform periodontal surgery, implant surgery, lip enhancement, snoring and wrinkle reduction, and other life-changing treatments. 

We named our practice “Bedrock,” because your periodontal tissues form the foundation for your dental health. An unhealthy periodontal foundation equals unhealthy teeth and oral health. What many people don’t realize is how that can impact the rest of your body. Periodontal health is strongly associated with your overall health. 

We want our patients to participate in their oral care and become informed decision-makers. The best outcomes happen when our patients are invested in their care. The team at Bedrock Laser Periodontics & Implants provides education, resources, and treatment to help every patient get the healthy smile they deserve. 

Dr. Ashwin B. Nambisan completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Surgery (BDS) at the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in India, followed by his Master’s in Public Health (MPH) from Loma Linda University in California. He went on to design dental implants and manage clinical trials at Zimmer Dental. His research at Zimmer Dental created a strong desire in him to pursue a career as a periodontist. 

After completing a three-year periodontics residency program at Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey, he received his Post Graduate Certificate in Periodontics in 2015.
