Just ask: All dentists, have a primary responsibility to hold their patients' best interests at heart. If you need a referral and prefer a certain specialist, your dentist will be happy to work with that doctor. He/she will not take offense, and will gladly refer you to a specialist of your choice (e.g. endodontist, periodontist, oral surgeon, etc). Good luck.

A 59-year-old male asked:

Do dentists have the same amount of periodontal problems when compared to those in the general population who go for checkups and care?

Less: Dentists do a slightly better job than the general population with their own personal oral hygiene between check-ups, especially when it comes to flossing. As a result they have somewhat less periodontal problems and adult cavities. Don't rely on just your 6-month cleaning to keep you healthy. Raise your personal level hygiene to lower the risk of problems.
