Van Winkle Periodontics

About Us

Dr. VanWinkle is a Periodontist located on the north side of Indianapolis specializing in the latest state-of-the-art treatment of gum disease, periodontal plastic and reconstructive surgery and dental implant surgery for tooth replacement. Our focus is conservative treatment methods as well as surgical therapies to repair and regenerate the damage created as a result of periodontal (gum) disease.

Your teeth are intended to last a lifetime — and they can, with proper care. Don’t wait until it hurts. Unfortunately, periodontal disease does not always cause pain or discomfort; therefore it is sometimes difficult to be motivated to treat the disease. A periodontal evaluation with Dr. Van Winkle is well worth the investment in saving your teeth. Periodontal disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.

We perform a variety of procedures to help you achieve the smile and dental health you need for a happy life.  Please read our patient reviews to learn how we treat our patients and the care we provide.  For more detailed information about how to prepare for your procedure, please visit our Patient Center.

I've been a patient of Dr. VanWinkle for many years. The wonderful customer service and dental care has remained very good!! I'm very thankful for the referral from Dr. Denise Flanagan and Dr. Lorie Brinson. Kind Regards, Danny O. Jones

I had an implant placed, and Dr. Van Winkle was so patient to make sure I was not in any pain and did an amazing job. It was a quick procedure, and not has bad as I thought considering I had been putting it off for 10 years because I was afraid. I am glad I finally did it and highly recommend coming here!Also, everyone in the office was so kind and friendly! I really enjoyed being here and everyone who helped me- including the front desk receptionist who really sets the tone for the office in my opinion.

As always, I had a superb care at Dr. Van Winkle's office. The dental hygienist was very knowledgeable, she examined me thoroughly and provided me with best advice on how to take care of my teethes in order to avoid periodontal disease.

This was my first visit and was a referral from my dentist. The staff was extremely courteous with smiles all around, made me feel a little less uncomfortable (it's a periodontics appointment, after all!). I'm not good with names, but the dental assistant who took xrays was friendly and shared a lot about what she was doing and why. same with the hygienist who did the initial exam. Very knowledgeable and spoke in terms I could understand. Don't misunderstand me, the exam was a little uncomfortable, but not unnecessarily so. Dr. Van Winkle spent more time with me than I expected and explained several options for treatment. He was candid and shared what he would do in my position, but then suggested that I should probably take a more conservative approach (which seemed a little less scary at the time). He was thoughtful, thorough and completely professional. Everyone worked together to put me at ease. I left the office with a plan in place that I felt confident about.

Dr Van Winkle, Debbie and all of the ladies there are wonderful. I've had several procedures done in this office and I have never had a bad experience. While I do not enjoy going to the dentist, I do enjoy visiting Dr Van Winkle's office. He and his staff make it a great experience. They always have your best interests in mind and make you comfortable as possible.
