About Dr. Pernikoff

Dr. Alan Pernikoff is a born and raised New York City Board Certified Periodontist. After receiving his Bachelors of Arts from Brooklyn College, he earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from New York University College of Dentistry. It was during this time in which he discovered his passion in Periodontics as he graduated with honors in Periodontics and received the Quintessence Award for Clinical Achievement in Periodontics.

After completing a one-year General Practice Residency at New York Hospital Queens where he received the Dr. Lawrence Diamond award for Clinical Excellence in Periodontics, Dr. Pernikoff went on to complete a 3a year specialty training program in the field of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at NYU College of Dentistry. While being trained and mentored by some of the top periodontists in the field, he obtained vast knowledge in treating patients with a wide range of services and procedures, both simple and complex, including dental implants, periodontal plastic surgery, periodontal therapy, sinus lifts, extractions, and bone grafting.

Dr. Pernikoff has showcased and presented his work at dental meetings and symposiums including the American Academy of Periodontology annual meeting and the Jay-Siebert Tri-School symposium. Dr. Pernikoff believes in treating each patient as an individual and giving his patients all treatment options.

He is LANAP certified clinician so that he can offer his patients a less painful and invasive alternative to traditional periodontal therapy using the FDA cleared Laser protocol to treat periodontitis. He is also a pinhole certified clinician allowing him to offer his patient a minimally invasive method to rejuvenate their gums without any blades or sutures.

Dr. Pernikoff also believes in giving back to his profession as well as is passionate about teaching. He holds a faculty appointment in the Department of Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at NYU as an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor. It is here where he trains both dental students and residents in the latest techniques in periodontics and implant dentistry.
