South River Periodontics was established by Dr. Robert Bouffard upon completion of a twenty-three year career as an officer in the United States Navy Dental Corps.  The primary focus of this somewhat unconventional periodontal practice is an emphasis on a team concept of restoring our patients to the highest level of health, function and esthetics.  South River Periodontics is committed to a comprehensive form of periodontal treatment which considers the health of the oral cavity as an integral part of the overall systemic health of the individual patient.  To this end, Dr. Bouffard has partnered with several well-established multi-specialty dental practices and renders treatment to his patients in those carefully selected facilities.  The relationship of the referring general dentist or specialist to his or her patients is paramount, and is never interfered with as we accept patients from many referring dentists.

We work closely with the referring dentist to accomplish the patient’s dental treatment goals.  South River Periodontics also partners with many other dental specialists who understand the complex multidisciplinary dental treatment needs many patients require.  We believe a team is only as strong as its weakest link, and therefore strive to build relationships with other doctors who are uniquely talented and capable of rendering the highest quality treatment to our patients.  You will find that South River Periodontics is able to provide the highest quality periodontal and dental implant therapy, using the most effective and up to date technology to achieve your treatment goals.

Most importantly, we at South River Periodontics consider our patients to be co-therapists in their treatment, for without well-honed and informed patients, we cannot achieve the level of success we strive for.

Dr. Robert A. Bouffard

Dr. Bouffard chose to serve this great nation as an officer in the United States Navy Dental Corps. His father served for 24 years as an enlisted man in the United States Army, and instilled in his son’s a great love for this country and a commitment to serve, to do their part to help keep the rest of us free. Dr. Bouffard served in the Navy for 23 years, and considers those years some of the best of his life.

See What Our Patients Are Saying

I have been going to South River Periodontics for years. I can't say enough about Dr. Robert Bouffard, DDS. His expertise and chair-side manner are positively beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist! If you're searching for a fabulous dentist who takes the time to actually get to know his patients and provides the best in dental treatment, one who will also explain procedures to you and treat you with the utmost respect and care, look no further than Dr. Robert Bouffard!

Linda Lee Annapolis, MD Dental Patient

Dr. Bouffard extracted my son's wisdom teeth when my son was only 13 and did such a fabulous job. He took his time to explain the procedure and put my son at great ease. Now my son needs an implant to replace a tooth lost when he was 9 and there is little anxiety since he trusts Dr. Bouffard so much. We are so happy to have met him at Maple Ave Family Dentistry in Barrington.

Eileen Brady Annapolis, MD Dental Patient

I was referred to Dr. Bouffard six months after hitting my face on the steering wheel in a car accident. Although I had been seen several times for face pain since the accident, it was still unclear about what was going on. Dr. Bouffard listened closely to all my continued troubles and within 5 minutes of meeting me figured out that my upper jaw had actually been dislocated and should’ve been wired shut to heal properly. I was upset but relieved to finally have some answers and a solid plan for treating my pain. Dr. Bouffard worked with one of "his guys" to construct a splint that I wore for several months to provide support and structure for my healing jaw. He has continued to be involved in my healing process, performing two implant surgeries and sending me on to an orthodontist for braces to further strengthen the integrity of my jaw. Two years later, he continues to check in with me and show genuine concern about how I am feeling. I am truly grateful to have been referred to him.
