About Us

The practice was established in 1985 and is dedicated to providing quality personal care to each of our patients. A successful, established periodontal practice doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of hard work, a dedicated and caring staff, quality care and the confidence of all our patients. Dr. Kukucka is proud of the many compliments we receive about our office and staff. Perhaps that is why patients recommend us to their family and friends. We believe that our best patients are often referred by our best patients. Thank you for your continued support.

Over 20 years ago, Dr. Kukucka obtained advanced training in dental implant surgery, placing his first implant in 1989. That original patient has been in regular maintenance care ever since, with the implant functioning without problems or incident for over 20 years. She has subsequently had all her upper teeth successfully replaced with implants. Our philosphy is to provide the patient with multiple alternative treatment solutions discussing the fees, potential pitfalls, and prognosis for success for each plan.
