Dr. Skinner believes that true excellence in patient care can only be achieved with a strong commitment to continuing education, technology, compassion, and a good understanding of patient goals.

The University of Iowa periodontal specialty program is quite diverse placing a heavy emphasis on current research and techniques in periodontal cosmetics, bone regenerative therapy, dental implant treatment, and traditional periodontics.
