Dr. Edison Abril
Dr. Edison Abril focuses in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Abril’s professional promise to you is dignity, respect, and ethical care of your teeth, implants and gums. He believes in dedicating the right amount of time to each patient whether it is for a consultation or a complex surgical procedure. Dr. Abril graduated from St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri where he received his degree in both periodontics and Master of Science in dentistry (research). His experience goes beyond the classroom and extends even to international venues. He practiced privately for two years in Bogota, Colombia where he holds a degree in general dentistry. He worked in a general dentistry practice in Northern Virginia for five years where he discovered his passion for periodontics and focused patient care. Most recently he was in private practice in the Northern Virginia area for three years before joining Occoquan Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
During his periodontal training, Dr. Abril acquired clinical experience in all aspects of non-surgical and surgical periodontal procedures including scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), bone grafting around teeth and implants, plastic surgery for teeth with gum recession and for teeth with poor gum quality, as well as crown lengthening procedures. He is fully trained in dental implant surgery, a treatment that replaces missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants that look and function like natural teeth. He has committed himself to improving the quality of people’s lives by treating the diseases that cause tooth loss and contribute to many overall health problems.
Dr. Abril lives in Centreville, VA and in his spare time he enjoys biking, swimming and playing football soccer.
