At State of the Art Smiles, we know a healthy smile goes deeper than a set of beautiful teeth, which is why our world-renowned dentist Dr. Phillip Katz is committed to delivering dental care that is second to none for every patient. A Columbus, OH native, Dr. Katz graduated from The Ohio State University with special distinction. Following graduation, he completed advanced training at the Spear Institute for Advanced Dental Education, The Pacific Implant Institute and the California Implant Institute to educate himself about the treatment of the medically complex patient, advanced reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry, and complex dental surgery. Dr. Katz continued his education at UCLA to become licensed to perform IV and oral sedation for patients who may be overly anxious about dental visits.
Along with his extensive medical training, Dr. Katz utilizes advanced, state of the art dental technology to ensure he is providing care that is precise, comprehensive and second-to-none. With the use of our in-house dental technology, we are able to perform digital X-rays which have 90% less radiation than standard X-rays, and our intraoral cameras give us a much more detailed look at patients’ teeth, capturing photos of the mouth and taking videos to create more detailed treatment plans. Our 3D printer aids us in printing patients’ long-term prostheses for full arch treatments, and our surgical guides allow us to foresee any complications before implant surgery. We also have a cutting-edge iCAM 4D photogrammetry scanner to take impressions of implants to perfectly fit the size of each patient’s mouth, a digital smile simulator to show what your teeth will look like after treatment, and digital planning software for our dental implants that allows us to create perfect restorations that will last a lifetime.
Having helped patients restore their self-confidence with life-changing results and healthy smiles since 2000, Dr. Katz has developed customized methods of implant dentistry to reconstruct those with missing, failing or decayed teeth. We pride ourselves on being able to offer each patient a personalized treatment plan designed by our knowledgeable and compassionate dentist using advanced techniques and technologies, and all at our convenient location in Pickerington, OH.
Dr. Katz doesn’t just help those seeking excellent dental care, he teaches it. Inside and outside of our practice, Dr. Katz utilizes his vast training and experience to not only educate other dentists and our staff, but also to help treat even the most challenging dental situations with ease. Upon earning his fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantology (ICOI), one of the highest international designations for skill in the surgery and restoration of dental implants, Dr. Katz was hand-picked to be one of only 100 visiting faculty mentors at the prestigious California Implant Institute in San Diego, CA, and is an instructor, lecturer and mentor at The Spear Institute for Advanced Dental Education in Scottsdale, AZ. Since delivering implant, functional and cosmetic solutions to patients for nearly 15 years, his commitment to doing it right the first time has won him multiple “America’s Best Dentist” awards in 2013, 2014 and 2015, as well as admiration from patients and many other dentists. Dr. Katz completes more than 100 hours of continuing education programs each year, choosing those offered by institutions and schools recognized for the high caliber of their courses. To be the best team we can be in providing outstanding patient care, our staff members also enhance their knowledge by taking many hours of continuing education credits each year.
While being endorsed by many colleagues and happy patients, Dr. Katz is known to be friendly, compassionate and relatable, making every patient feel cared for, comfortable and happy with their care. We are involved with our exceptional community as members of the Pickerington, OH Chamber of Commerce, and we’re very supportive of many local school sports. We take pride in getting to know you both professionally and personally, in order to build lasting relationships in and out of the office!
