We also provide up-to-date continuing education on topics most vital to the health and welfare of our patients as well as give you the opportunity to network with your colleagues in periodontics. We strongly encourage you to join the Illinois Society of Periodontists as it represents the voice of the periodontist in the state. We look forward to working with you and invite you to contact us with any suggestions you may have or information we may help you with.
