Advanced Periodontal & Dental Implant Care


We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website and to extend a warm welcome.
Our goal is to provide you with excellent, advanced periodontal care.

Our staff members are one of the reasons we are so successful. Our faces have been around for years, and we are dedicated to treating each patient as a part of our family. Our caring and concern is a hallmark of the practice. On your first visit, you will be given a thorough examination and then we will discuss all of your options for treatment. We want you to be completely informed so that, together, we can determine the best solution for you.

We provide state-of-the-art care to ensure that you achieve optimal and the most cosmetic results. We have the latest equipment, including three different types of dental lasers that provide less discomfort to patients. Dr. Braswell and her staff regularly engage in continued education to remain at the forefront of this and other dental technologies.

Reviews & Ratings

  • review rating 5  Every single experience I have had with Buckhead Periodontics has been professional and top notch. Dr Braswell and her assistant, Sophia are like shining stars there and are excellent at what they do. They take the time to listen to you, explain things and I felt like I was in the best of hands. I would highly recommend them. Procedure may not be something you look forward to, but they are superb and made me comfortable and relaxed. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

    review rating 5  Dr. B and Sophia are a well oiled team who pulled off the impossible ultimately saving my tooth. She said it was a very, very hard surgery (bragging rights for me!) and I had no swelling, bruising or pain!! Not usual, but I’ll sure take it!

    thumb Lynn Richey

    review rating 5  I cannot say enough good things about this practice. Every single person encountered is warm, friendly, and goes out of their way to make you comfortable and feel at ease. I feel certain I am in extremely capable hands with Dr. Kramer and Melissia. I would absolutely recommend Buckhead Periodontics to anyone who needs such care.

  • review rating 5  I cannot recommend Dr Braswell highly enough. After seeing many dentists over the last couple of decades, with varying degrees of frustrating results, I finally got lucky with my current dentist who recommended I consult with Dr Braswell for periodontal care. I have had the Laser periodontal procedure done and it has seriously improved my gum health. Laura and her team at Buckhead Periodontics from the front desk to financing dept to dental hygienists and dental assistants have treated me with exceptional kindness and great care. If you need a Periodontal procedure or need ongoing care for your gums this is THE place to go.
