I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Central Oregon Perio and commend both you and your referring dentist in understanding the importance of periodontal health to your overall physical health and well-being.
My name is Nicholas W. Misischia, D.M.D. and I am a periodontal dental specialist here in Central Oregon. Don’t worry, only a few have ever been able to say my name correctly and over the years I have come to be known as “Dr. Nick”. After four years of undergraduate college at the University of Michigan, I gained a degree in dentistry in 1997 from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and then followed up with both an internship year of training in oral & maxillofacial surgery and time as a private practicing general dentist with my father in the Chicagoland area. Later, the desire for continued challenge led me to Portland, Oregon where I was awarded a second degree in 2002 in the specialty of Periodontology from the Oregon Health Sciences University.
As a periodontist, my main dental focus is the foundation of your teeth including the “jawbone” and “gums” that hold them in place. My main goal for all patients is to help them achieve the highest level of oral health possible. A close second is to try and help patients maintain the teeth that already exist in their mouths.
Here at Central Oregon Perio, my staff and I have tried to create an atmosphere where patients feel comforted and “at home”. Dental visits, often times, create anxiety and our desire is to provide the most pleasant experience possible accompanied by the highest, most up-to-date level of treatment.
