Check Out Cynthia Scheines’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cynthia Scheines. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Dr. Cynthia Scheines earned her D.D.S. degree (1997), her Master’s in Periodontics (2001) and her Ph.D. in Dentistry (2005) in Argentina. She earned her certificate in Periodontics at the Oregon Health and Science University, Portland in 2015 and was awarded her Board Certification in 2016.

She has been in private practice and active in teaching for the past 20 years. An Assistant Professor in Argentina, she continued to teach while in Oregon and was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Periodontics, Oregon Health & Science University relocating to California in 2017 to become an Assistant Professor at the Advanced Specialty Education Program in Periodontics, School of Dentistry, Loma Linda University, CA where she still currently teaches part-time.

She is currently dedicated to her private practice located in Cerritos, Los Angeles, California since 2019.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There had been many challenges along the ride. There are many requirements and steps necessary for an international specialized dentist to become a fully recertify dentist in the US. Even harder for a Dental Specialist-like myself in order to become a Board Certified Periodontist.

For sure not an easy road! But absolutely worth it!

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a board-certified periodontist specializing in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as placement of dental implants offering advanced specialized knowledge in the science and clinical applications of implant dentistry, and soft & hard tissue oral regeneration.

Besides my skills as a Periodontist, I am also a Certified Phlebotomist Technician, allowing me to perform Platelet Rich Fibrin Technology offering our patients with the latest technology and approach for tissue regeneration.

My focus is to offer our patients the highest care and best dental treatment supporting the latest techniques in the treatment of periodontal procedures.

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
I see the dental industry moving forward to laser technology, robotics and artificial intelligence.
