Meet Dr. Hyung Jin Bae
Dr Bae is a rare practitioner, an Integrative Periodontist. He has joined our staff because Dr O’Rielly’s philosophies in dentistry and health align with his. He and Dr Bae have the same holistic approach to designing patient treatments: optimizing results in order to maximize health.
Patients have been pleased and excited to work with him. As an Integrative Periodontist, he truly understands how the mouth affects overall health. In addition to restoring health to the gums, bone and other supporting structures of the mouth and teeth, he also lowers the inflammatory burden that the mouth can put on the rest of the body. Dr. Bae is able to accomplish this in in the least painful and invasive way possible.
His treatments incorporate laser surgeries called LANAP to restore gum and bone health around inflamed and even diseased gums. In addition, Dr Bae also restores gum strength and gum health by correcting loss and recession. He does this with an ingenious technique of microsurgery called the Pinhole Technique, which doesn’t require cutting of the gums and harvesting tissue. This allows for procedures that are less painful and have quicker healing times.
Dr Bae received his dental degree from Columbia University Dental School and his Certificate of Periodontics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 2011. In 2012 he became a Diplomat in Periodontology and is Board Certified for Periodontics and Dental Implants. Since then, he has become a Fellow at Harvard University for Implant Dentistry and a Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry for LANAP and LAPIP. LAPIP is another procedure using the laser that treats a condition called Peri-implantitis.
Dr Bae has been a clinical instructor in periodontics and implants. He has also done research on the affects of diabetes and the microbiome/bacteria of the mouth on gum health, systemic inflammatory conditions, and chronic disease.
