Progressive Periodontics – How We Are Different

Progressive Periodontics is not your average dentistry practice. We were the first periodontal office in Portland, the second in the Pacific Northwest to offer state-of-the-art laser periodontal surgery (LANAP), and one of the very few to offer intravenous (IV) sedation. We are always striving to be the best at what we do, and we remain highly accessible to patients of all backgrounds and ages.

Dr. Thanik truly enjoys analyzing new findings and adopting them into daily clinical practice to better serve his patients. He attends additional education courses, well above what is required by state licensing boards, to stay abreast on the latest developments in dentistry, periodontics, and implant dentistry. He has also completed all necessary courses for complete laser periodontal surgery and is currently a certified instructor, allowing him to teach the technique to other surgeons.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

Dr. Thanik and our professional team stay ahead of the curve to create a relaxing and stress-free environment. You can expect to receive precise treatments performed carefully and gently for results that are beyond your expectations.
