Like his colleagues, Dr. Sigafoos is a great communicator. He takes the time to clearly explain periodontal disease and treatment procedures. He uses uncomplicated language to ensure that patients easily understand every step of their treatment.

Dr. Sigafoos earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and also completed his postgraduate periodontics studies at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
