The Perio Montreal practice has been around for almost 70 years. Founded by the late Dr. Robert Harvey in the early 1950’s, he was the grandfather of modern periodontology in Montreal. He took in Dr. Marvin Stutman in 1969, Dr. Mel Hershenfield in 1972, and Dr. Marvin Werbitt in 1973. Current partners, Dr. Jeremy Werbitt and Dr. Bram Salis, and associates Dr. Edward H Trinh and Dr. Geneviève Payne, have brought with them superior clinical skills, a dedicated work ethic, and renewed energy to the Perio Montreal practice. Additionally, Perio Montreal strives to be of utmost service to its patients by providing in-house access to oral medicine & oral and maxillofacial pathology specialist Dr. Firoozeh Samim.
Perio Montreal has long been one of the largest and most prestigious periodontal offices in Montreal and is well known in the dental community for delivering the highest level of care to their patients. All the partners and associates have taught or are currently teaching at numerous dental residency and undergraduate programs including the Jewish General, Montreal General, and McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry. They have been a part of many different dental and periodontal organizations at the municipal, provincial, national, and even international level, such as the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, which governs all dental specialists in the country.
Perio Montreal was among the first to implement hygienists into clinical practice in the early 1970’s to aid in patient maintenance, something unheard of at the time that is now standard in almost every dental office. This is in addition to their involvement in the development of a dental hygienist training program at the University of Montreal and at John Abbott College. Perio Montreal has been at the forefront of continuing education, hosting lectures by some of the biggest names in the field for many years. Perio Montreal remains committed to educating patients, other dental professionals, and of course ourselves as the field of dentistry continues to evolve.
