“Happiness starts with a smile.” While this common saying speaks to immense value of a healthy smile, the reverse is also true: Without a healthy smile, due to missing teeth or the onset of periodontal disease, individuals may be forced to lead a life of compromise. In its advanced stages, periodontal disease can impair the aesthetics and functionality of the smile, and lead to other problems that jeopardize an individual’s long-term health.   
Enter John Whytosek, D.M.D., of Main Line Periodontics & Dental Implants. As a board-certified periodontist with a well-established practice in Bryn Mawr, Dr. Whytosek specializes in treating the soft tissues of the mouth and the underlying structures that support the teeth, using means both surgical and nonsurgical to manage periodontal disease. 
Dr. Whytosek has a passion for implant and regenerative dentistry, guided by some of the most cutting-edge tools and materials available. His office utilizes technological advances such as digital radiography and cone beam computed tomography to provide comprehensive treatment planning. And for individuals who may be apprehensive about sitting in the dentist’s chair, the practice offers IV sedation for a more relaxed experience.
At Main Line Periodontics & Dental Implants, Dr. Whytosek’s brand of high-quality, comprehensive periodontal care is designed to save patients’ teeth. For those teeth that cannot be saved, or for individuals who wear dentures, the practice can replace failing or missing teeth using dental implants. For qualified candidates, Dr. Whytosek can offer the immediate placement of dental implants, providing an aesthetically pleasing and functional smile in as little as one day.
For several years running, Dr. Whytosek has been named a “top dentist” by respected publications such as Philadelphia magazine, Main Line Today, and Suburban Life. That should come as no surprise considering his background and training. Dr. Whytosek earned his D.M.D. from the Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University, and then completed his residency in periodontology and dental implants at New York University, where he gained recognition as “Outstanding Resident Clinician.” He has since furthered his education by obtaining board certification as a Diplomate of the Academy of Periodontology. 
Dr. Whytosek is pleased to announce that Main Line Periodontics & Dental Implants has added Joshua A. Evensky, D.D.S., M.D.S., as a full-time practitioner. Born and raised in Memphis, Tenn., Dr. Evensky obtained his dental degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 2013. Following his dental school training, he was accepted and completed a general practice residency at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. He then worked as a general dentist for a year before being accepted into the Advanced Periodontology program at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. He earned his Master’s in Dental Science upon graduation in June of 2018.
“Periodontal disease is essentially an inflammatory disease affecting the gums and bones around the teeth,” says Dr. Evensky. “It is typically asymptomatic, so it’s common that somebody is unaware that they have a problem until it’s too late. Being in a position to educate a patient on saving their teeth is very rewarding. If a tooth is deemed hopeless, I can offer other replacement options, such as a dental implant. It’s great to be in a profession where you can change someone’s life by saving or fixing someone’s smile.” 
Dr. Evensky looks forward to growing within the practice, as well as adding to his knowledge and experience alongside Dr. Whytosek.
“We pride ourselves in offering state-of-the-art technology for dental treatment in a warm and welcoming environment,” adds Dr. Whytosek. “I will continue to be in the office on a full-time basis, with Dr. Evensky practicing alongside me. I feel very fortunate that Dr. Evensky has joined our practice, as he is a competent and careful practitioner who will uphold a high quality of service and dental care for the people and community we are privileged to serve.”
