Dr Peter Serb (BDS, MDSc, MRACDSperio)

Dr Serb has been a Specialist Periodontist since 1994.  He completed his first degree in dentistry at the University of Sydney in 1987 and practiced in Cabramatta and Top Ryde.  During this time he continued his academic training and completed the primary examination for the Royal College of Dental Surgeons in 1990. With this experience he was able to successfully apply for specialist training in 1991.  His research area at the time was the role of periodontal infection in the spread of HIV infection.

At Burwood Dental Specialists, Dr Serb’s approach to periodontal treatment is one of ‘keep it simple’.  Conservative treatment and excellent home care are the keys to successful periodontal treatment.  Surgery is a last resort and is reserved for cases where the benefits far outweigh the costs and the likelihood of success is high.

In addition to his full time private practice, Dr Serb spent 18 years as a visiting staff specialist at Westmead dental Clinical School where he was not only involved in the management of complex dental cases, but also taught periodontics to undergraduate dental students as well as postgraduate specialists in training.

Dr Serb completed his implant surgical training in 1994 and has placed over 2000 implants over the last 20 years.  He has seen the evolution of implant technology and has experience with all the major implant systems including Noble Biocare, ITI, 3i, Astra, Southern and MIS.  His experiences and high success rates have enabled him to lecture regularly on various aspects of implant dentistry as well as to teach implant surgery at the post-graduate level.
