Graduate Periodontics Clinic

University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine

The CU Graduate Periodontics Clinic provides comprehensive periodontal treatment for patients in the Denver metropolitan area. Our clinic is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus and offers a wide range of services to treat issues affecting the gum and bone tissues. You can expect high-quality, affordable care at prices that are typically 25-50% lower than private practice periodontists. 


Patients of our clinic are treated by licensed dentists who are training to become periodontists under expert faculty supervision. Our highly skilled faculty has an average of over twenty years of experience practicing and teaching periodontics. If you need periodontal care, we’ll determine a treatment plan that best fits your needs based on the latest evidence-based research. 

What’s the Difference Between a Dentist and a Periodontist?

A general dentist provides preventive and restorative services like bi-annual teeth cleanings and filling cavities. A periodontist specializes in treating conditions such as gum disease that affect the gum and bone tissues supporting your teeth. While anyone can make an appointment with a general dentist, referrals are typically required to see a periodontist. 

Our Periodontal Treatment Services

The CU Graduate Periodontics Clinic offers a wide scope of periodontal services, including:

  • Biopsies,

  • Bone grafts to restore lost jaw structure,

  • Dental bone grafts for teeth,
