Scope of Practice
Dr. Bouffard is certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Periodontics. He completed residencies in both Hospital Dentistry and specialty training in Periodontics. Upon completion of Residency training, he successfully pursued board certification and became one of only a small percentage of periodontists who are Board Certified in Periodontics and Dental Implantology. To achieve board certification takes a great deal of effort and requires regular recertification. For his patients, that means that Dr. Bouffard has achieved the highest level of training and certification possible in his profession. To retain board certification he attends extensive annual continuing education and is required to take a recertification examination periodically.

Dr. Bouffard uses computer technology to plan surgical dental implant placement to facilitate restoration by his restorative colleagues. Dental implant therapy is very technique sensitive and Dr. Bouffard has a very high success rate. This success is achieved in large measure by using technology to optimize the placement of dental implants in the ideal location using the techniques deemed best for each individual patient.
