Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the health of your gums and jawbone — the tissues that support your teeth.

Dr. Farah Walji often referred to as “Dr. Farah,” specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease as well as the placement of dental implants. Dr. Farah has taken advanced courses in implant and bone grafting surgery. She enjoys that these advances in tooth replacement have allowed traditional treatment times to be cut in half, provide better post operative healing and increased surgical and prosthetic success.
“The team approach to patient care at King Ritson and the Heritage Dental Specialists offices with both dentists and specialists under one roof enables us to optimize patient care. Group treatment planning is easily facilitated in this environment.
The foundation of my relationship with my patients lies in my consultation. I take pride in understanding both my patient’s lifestyle and their goals for their smile. This allows me to create a treatment plan that is individualized and structured to fit their needs. Striving to ensure my patients feel good, look their best and are smiling ear-to-ear the moment they leave my office.”
Outside of the office Dr. Farah enjoys exercising, traveling, cooking and spending time with her family.
