Patient Testimonials

I have had issues with gum health for over 30 years, and the fact that I still have my natural teeth is because of the talents and skills of Dr. Temple and her staff. Their care for me was evident: they went the extra mile to explain any procedure, answered all my questions, and I was impressed that my procedures were so smooth and pain-free. I have no doubt that they truly care about their patients and have the expertise to deliver on their intentions.

Leo Rossler

When Dr. Temple became a part of the team at Tyler Periodontics, her expertise and confidence were evident to me through how she carried herself in a room. Within minutes of seeing me, she had a plan and was confident in her decision. The team was professional and transparent throughout, with a clear treatment plan that you, as a patient, have final approval over. After my treatment with Tyler Periodontics, I can finally live a life without mouth pain.

Billy Fenner

I wanted a periodontist who cares as much about my gum health as I do. I switched to Tyler Periodontics and now believe they’re the best care available in East Texas. They make me feel heard, they want me to be comfortable, and they prioritize having a state-of-the-art medical clinic. Even more, they’re kind. The team is kind to one another, the receptionist desk is welcoming, and I’ve always felt respected as a person.

Toni Biggs

I was nervous heading into Tyler Periodontics. I needed to improve my gum health so that I could get Invisalign treatment but didn’t know what to expect. Tyler Periodontics quickly calmed any fears by explaining procedures, treatments, and aftercare with compassion and care. I always knew they were on my side, from the way they quickly responded to communication to how they checked on me after my surgeries. Not only did they care for me personally, but the result of my treatment was beyond anything I could have hoped for.
