Periodontal Health is a Gateway to Your Body’s Health

“Your teeth look good, but I’m concerned about your gums.” Perhaps this is something you’ve heard your dentist advise you.

Thus, begins the story of how Stacia became a dentist. It all started when she was a child working with her dad in his workshop.

Dr. Stacia Krantz came to her career in dentistry at the suggestion of her dad, who was an orthopedic surgeon. “I spent many hours in our garage workshop with him, using our hands to create things.

(Picture to the left is Dr. Wasserman's graduation photo from this July 2019 receiving his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.)
