Faculty Practice Information
Our faculty are dentists who have additional education in the specialty of periodontics (gum treatments). They are carefully chosen from many periodontists (gum doctors) from across the nation and are held to the highest standard. These periodontists are at the forefront of innovative techniques and products and are on the cutting edge of patient care because they work in both a clinical and academic setting. Moreover, they are able to provide patients with the widest range of periodontal services which is supported by the latest knowledge and research in one of the nation’s foremost universities. Therefore, focus is placed on the best, most up-to-date treatment available in a pleasant and caring environment. We are the people who teach dentists at The Ohio State University to become the periodontists that ultimately practice in the State of Ohio. The periodontal faculty who provide patient care are: Dr. Binnaz Leblebicioglu (, Dr. Angelo Mariotti (, and Dr. John Walters (

Periodontal Procedures
The periodontal faculty offer a full range of periodontal procedures which include scaling and root planing (deep scaling), soft tissue grafting (gum grafts), bone grafting (to reverse periodontal disease), implant surgery (for the replacement of teeth) and a wide variety of other periodontal procedures. The Ohio State University Dental Faculty Practice Association accepts many different types of dental insurance, which reduce patient out-of-pocket costs.
