Our Brookline periodontist provides compassion, expertise, and science to create your healthiest smile.
Restoring and rejuvenating
To provide comprehensive dental care under one roof, Dr. Wanpeng Xu was hand-selected to join our team. His years of periodontal experience and excellent patient care made him the clear choice for Smile Brookline.
Having a periodontal specialist in-office is key to providing a full-circle experience for our patients. Instead of traveling to a specialist to have a portion of your treatment done, such as an implant placement, our doctors can coordinate with you right here. Dr. Xu and your cosmetic dentist are involved in your entire treatment.
Periodontal treatments include:
- Surgical Periodontics, including bone grafts, frenectomy, tissue regeneration, & sinus lifts
- Dental Implants
- Gum Contouring

‘‘While we focus on helping you keep your natural teeth as long as possible, there are times when you may have more complex needs. Our team is here to find the perfect solution for you.’’

Patients love our Board Certified Periodontist, Dr. Wanpeng Xu. Because he is one of our in-house doctors, there is no need to travel to a specialist.
Because we have a specialist on staff, you are always receiving the most comprehensive care. If you need extra or specialized treatment, we have resources for you.
Prevent Gum Disease
Gum disease is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. With proper dental hygiene, it can be prevented entirely.
Keeping our patients happy and healthy is our #1 goal. This means we always have access to the latest technologies to help your smile improve and make your appointments go faster.
We like second chances
With dental implants, your smile can have just that. Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. Many patients are unhappy with the appearance and functionality of dentures or bridges. We are excited to offer our patients dental implants for secure, natural-looking teeth. Because we have an in-house periodontist and an in-house dental laboratory, you can have both your surgical implant placement and your restoration created at our office — no need to coordinate with a 3rd party.
Why are dental implants so great?
Dental implants are a titanium post surgically anchored in your jaw. A dental restoration, such as a crown or denture, is then attached to the implant. The implant acts like the root of your tooth allowing for greater stability, better function, and pleasing aesthetics.
Surgical periodontics include bone grafts, frenectomy, guided tissue regeneration, and sinus lifts. We offer sedation options to keep you relaxed and at ease throughout your whole surgical procedure. Our in-house periodontist participates in extensive and on-going training so you can be sure you are in good hands. If you think you are a candidate for one of these procedures, contact us and we will set up a treatment plan.
No one likes the idea of having a tooth pulled out, but sometimes it needs to happen to keep your smile healthy or to prepare your mouth for orthodontics. Our experienced team is here to make your extraction go by in a breeze! We have sedation options to help you stay at ease and comfortable the entire time.
Dental implants are the ideal option for a missing tooth. Because the titanium implant is anchored in your jaw, your restorations or dentures have more stability and function than a bridge or traditional denture. Plus, they look like your natural teeth.
Have you ever heard someone say they have a "gummy" smile? Gum contouring is an excellent option to help improve your gum line. If you think you are a candidate for gum contouring, schedule your consultation with Dr. Xu, our in-house periodontist. He will help recommend the perfect treatment for your smile.
