Many gum conditions that we diagnose require the treatment of a specialist known as a Periodontist. Rather than being referred out for these services, our patients can take comfort in knowing that their treatment will be performed in the very same office that all of their general dentistry is done.
Dr. Eric L. Niver is a Board Certified Periodontist that sees and treats our patients right at Midgette Family Dentistry.

Dr. Niver completed his undergraduate studies in Boston. He received his D.D.S. degree with honors in Periodontology from New York University College of Dentistry. He then returned to California for a specialty residency in periodontology at the University of California at San Francisco, where he received intense surgical and implant training, sedation certification, and his Masters of Science in Craniofacial Biology.

Dr. Niver has been published in peer-reviewed journals and has been the recipient of research and dental leadership awards. He has attended numerous meetings and symposia on various topics in dentistry and periodontology, and is currently on the faculty of New York University dental school.

Dr. Niver and his lovely wife Krystie have a daughter, Whitney. When away from the office, Dr. Niver has many interests including cooking, hiking, travel, running, biking, and especially the company of family and friends!
