Why Choose Philadelphia Periodontist Dr. I. Stephen Brown?

Dr. Brown

To get the best care for your teeth and gums, you need someone like Dr. I. Stephen Brown, DDS, FACD, FICD. A Board Certified periodontist in Philadelphia, Dr. Brown has the experience and education to halt the progression of gum disease, replace missing teeth with dental implants and insure your smile is healthy, comfortable, and beautiful.

A Dedication to Continued Education

No dentist should be done learning when he/she graduates from dental school. Since the dental profession is constantly changing and the science behind new dental techniques is always getting better, a “one and done” mentality towards dental education could lead to a lifetime of offering outdated procedures. For this reason, Dr. Brown places a special emphasis on continuing dental education, enabling him to provide his patients with the latest and most technologically advanced treatments available.

As a dentist dedicated to continuing education, Dr. Brown has worked hard throughout his career to provide the best new techniques benefiting his patients. Dr. Brown was the first dentist in Philadelphia to offer LANAP, a clinically proven alternative to conventional “cut and stitch” periodontal surgery. He was also the first Periodontist in the Philadelphia Region to offer The Pinhole Surgical Technique, a minimally invasive procedure designed to reverse gum recession, without having to harvest tissue from the palate.

Dr. Brown also provides patients in Philadelphia with dental implants, a clinically proven method for replacing missing teeth, which look, feel and function like natural teeth. 

Dr. Brown’s specialized training in LANAP, a minimally invasive, laser-assisted treatment for gum disease, helps his patients to quickly recover from the devastating effects of advanced periodontal disease. For up-to-date treatment options, Dr. Stephen Brown is an excellent choice.

A Unconditional Focus On Patient Care

Dr. Brown is always trying to find ways to make trips to the dentist more convenient, relaxing, and enjoyable. One of the ways that Dr. Brown accomplishes this difficult feat is by offering procedure options that help patients experience a quick recovery. He also talks with patients about their preferences and comfort requirements, so that each patient can receive the quality of dental care they deserve in a stress free environment.
