Just a Few Reasons to Consider Our Practice

At Christman Periodontics we are committed to providing Lancaster and the surrounding area with personal, professional and patient-focused care.  It is our mission to provide an exceptional, service-oriented environment where you will feel comfortable, informed and welcome.

Board Certified

Not all periodontists are board-certified.  Dr. Christman is the only full-time, board certified periodontist currently practicing in Lancaster County.   As a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, he has achieved significant additional standards beyond the mandatory requirements of the specialty.  In addition to doctoral training, diplomates are required to attain postdoctoral periodontal certification in an ADA approved program, where they receive concentrated training in their specialty. They are required to pass rigorous oral and comprehensive qualifying examinations which require recertification every six years.  This means that Dr. Christman receives in-depth continuing education training on the latest treatment methodologies for advanced periodontal disease. Dr. Christman is also a member of The American Academy of Periodontology and the Academy of Osseointegration

The Latest Treatment Technology

Thanks to the latest in 3D imaging technology, our office is able to place implants with 99.9% accuracy.  We can see bone structures, nerves and blood vessels in great detail and can therefore plan our treatments in advance to ensure a successful outcome and a speedy recovery. In fact, we’re the only periodontist in Lancaster County that uses this kind of technology in our practice. Most importantly, we use Astra & Straumann implants – which are consistently recognized by periodontists around the world as the top manufacturer of quality dental implants.

Patient Focused

We put our patients first, and tailor treatments to achieve the best outcome in each individual case.  This means taking the time to listen, examine and discuss our findings.  We present treatment plans and discuss both the medical and financial aspects of any recommendation before beginning treatment. We do our best to spend as much time as possible with our patients, listening, discussing, answering questions and making sure that everyone we treat feels comfortable and confident that they’ve made the right treatment decision.

Periodontics First

At Christman Periodontics, we believe that treating the underlying causes of periodontal disease and restoring oral health should come before placing implants. Too often, chronic conditions are left untreated and result in expensive, avoidable repairs to implants. We care about your overall well-being, and want you to experience the best process to achieve comprehensive oral health. Because we make the gums healthy before any subsequent treatments or implants, we create beautiful, long-lasting, healthy smiles!


At Christman Periodontics, we place your safety as our highest priority. To safeguard the health of our patients and staff, we uphold the strictest sterilization standards in order to avoid cross-contamination and to prevent infection. These processes meet or surpass those recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
