Meet Dr. Dr. Polly Huang
Dr. Huang is an expert in restoring gum health.
It doesn’t matter if you’re just looking to stop bleeding when you brush or if you need extensive gum grafting before implant surgery — Dr. Huang can help.
Thanks to her extensive training, she’s comfortable with all areas of periodontics, whether it’s helping patients build healthy everyday habits or planning complex regenerative procedures.
As a former hygienist, she knows that daily gum care can be a struggle.
Over 6 years, she spent countless hours treating patients and speaking with them about their daily oral healthcare habits.
It means that she really gets the challenges that people face when it comes to taking care of their gums, and she now uses that knowledge to create treatment plans that are effective but still easy to stick to.

I could talk all day about mucogingival grafting or ridge augmentation of the atrophic maxilla — but what I really want you to know is that I’m here to help you have healthy gums.
If there’s one thing that my time as a hygienist showed me, it’s that gum care and tooth care are equally important. So, now it’s my mission to share that message, both as a care provider restoring gum health for my patients and as a dental lecturer guiding current and future dentists.
