Dr. Julie C. Swift grew up in Wichita. While she was in dental school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, her mother was told she had gingival recession. Dr. Swift suggested she be evaluated by one of the residents in UM-KC’s graduate periodontics program; her mother proceeded with gum grafting
procedures at the school. Dr. Swift assisted the surgical resident and that is when she learned first-hand what a periodontist does; she knew immediately it was something she wanted to pursue.
ABOUT TOPEKA PERIODONTICS
Dr. Swift is a Board-Certified Periodontist working in Topeka; she serves patients from as far away as Hays and the Nebraska border. If you have been told you have deep pockets, receding gums or need a deep cleaning, we would be happy to schedule you for a comprehensive examination and discuss the findings and treatment plan. While many patients are referred by their general dentist, a referral is not necessary to be seen. We love meeting patients who come to our practice because a friend, colleague or family member sent them our way.
I was terrified to have oral surgery! Dr. Swift and her Staff did everything to make me feel comfortable. They have great COVID protocols in place which includes taking temperatures and asking screening questions. The Staff is so friendly and highly professional. I highly recommend them!
Periodontists receive extensive training, including three additional years of education beyond dental school, in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. In addition, they can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
