Meet the Doctors

Get to Know Dr. Henriod

Dr. Joel Henriod received his DDS degree from the renowned UCLA School of Dentistry and was the Chief Resident during his Periodontic Residency at the Medical University of South Carolina. Because periodontics is an ever-changing field, continual learning is a cornerstone of his dental practice.

He’s also a Diplomate of the prestigious American Board of Periodontology. He was certified after passing a comprehensive and rigorous examination covering all phases of gum disease and its treatment, including dental implants. Only 10% of periodontists have this certification.

In addition to being board-certified in periodontics, Dr. Henriod is certified in LANAP (laser periodontal surgery), a minimally invasive alternative to regular periodontal surgery (gum disease surgery); trained in the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a non-surgical solution for receding gum; and he is certified in oral and IV sedation as well.

Dr. Henriod is a sought after speaker on gum grafting, LANAP, and dental implant treatment, having spoken around the country to a variety of dentists, dental specialists, and hygienists.
