Dr. Kevin B. Calongne, DDS
Welcome! Dr. Calongne and his staff specialize in treating periodontal diseases (a persistent infection in the soft tissues of your mouth) and in the placement of dental implants for replacement of missing teeth. Using non-surgical, surgical, and regenerative techniques, we can help treat the underlying causes of your disease. We strive to restore your periodontal health in the most non-invasive and cost-effective way possible. We will provide treatment alternatives, so that each patient can decide what is best for them on an individual basis. Once your initial treatment is complete, we’ll help with the ongoing therapy and treatment to make sure your mouth stays healthy for years to come.
Dr. Calongne is a native Houstonian who grew up in West Houston and attended Westchester High School, where he was a National Merit Commended Scholar and participated in football, track and was President of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He attended Louisiana State University and was accepted into its prestigious dental school in 1987. In 1989, and again in 1990, he received the Deans Commendation for Exceptional National Dental Board Performance.

While in his post-graduate training, he received a Billy Pennell Graduate Research Award for his study comparing various bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration techniques. This study was later published in the Journal of Periodontology; the most widely regarded periodontal publication.
