Our Story

For the past fifty years, CharlottePerio’s primary mission has been to help patients maintain the health and appearance of their natural teeth for as long as possible through periodontal and surgical excellence. The practice is particularly proud and grateful to be able to collaborate with Charlotte’s finest dentists, each of whom is dedicated to providing the highest quality treatment for their patients. This synergistic approach to interdisciplinary care is the gold standard in both dentistry and medicine today.

As periodontists, the doctors at CharlottePerio specialize in treatment planning and surgical services focused on exceeding the goals of their patients as well as those of the restorative dentist. They are experts in regenerating lost bone and gum tissue to preserve and beautify smiles. Working closely with the patient’s dentist, they craft a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the full scope of each patient’s individual dental needs from both surgical and nonsurgical periodontal therapy to their restorative care.

There are times when a failing tooth cannot be saved and replacement becomes necessary. The doctors at CharlottePerio are experts in implant dentistry and the surgical procedures related to state-of-the-art implant placement, including tooth extractions, bone grafts, and precise implant surgical positioning.

CharlottePerio’s board certified periodontists remain on the forefront of current advances in dental technology through a commitment to continuing education and participation in clinical research. They are actively involved in leadership roles in professional associations as well as civic and religious organizations.

At CharlottePerio, the doctors and staff share a passion for superior dental care along with a sincere appreciation for the community in which they work and live. They are thankful for the trust demonstrated by their longstanding relationships with the Charlotte area’s outstanding dental healthcare providers.

Dr. Robert Rubins established our practice in the early seventies. He was joined by Dr. Stephen Buck shortly thereafter and a few years later by Dr. Van Vagianos. These three men are responsible for setting the high bar for patient care, technical expertise and community service that we are proud to carry on today. We are grateful to them for the legacy of excellence they have left with us and we are determined to maintain those standards for years to come.

Our practice is committed to being a state of the art, caring practice; a friendly and warm environment for both patients and staff; a practice that delivers individual attention and focuses on whole patient care; a place where doctors and staff are available to patients and each other. We strive to be leaders in our profession, while serving our community. We are dedicated to the advancement of patient care through our pursuit of education, periodontal and implant technology, and clinical research.
