Biomimetic Systemic Dentist

 The Good Dentist


My approach to oral health is centered on “the dental-body connection.” It means what happens in your mouth directly affects what happens in the rest of your body. Our mouths are the gateway to what we eat, what we breathe, and how we communicate. And those are tied directly to our physical and emotional wellness. It’s a lot more important than many patients and practitioners realize

As one of the only certified oral systemic and biological dentists in Los Angeles and Seattle using minimally invasive standards of practice and biomimetic dental materials, I recognize the need for a broader scope in modern dentistry.

Specializing in safe mercury filling removal, surgical repair of cavitational osteonecrosis in the jaw, proper tooth extraction, and no-drilling ozone and air abrasion, I use minimally invasive methods to help patients practice ‘preventative dentistry’ to avoid future complications altogether. I often work in teams with medical doctors to provide treatments for chronically ill patients.

As a pioneer in Minimally-Invasive Oral-Systemic Dentistry, I specialize in state-of-the-art general and esthetic dentistry. I use an integrative approach which combines conventional and natural methods. I am licensed to practice dentistry in the states of California and Washington, and maintain dental offices in both Los Angeles and Seattle.

My purpose in life is to bring the best dental care possible to my patients, and to do my part in establishing new standards of practice in my profession that are minimally invasive and more effective in preventing tooth decline and gum disease in order to promote the overall well-being of all patients.

I am a member of a variety of well-known American and international dental organizations including the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Western Dental Society, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. In addition, I am proud to also be a member of several distinguished cutting-edge organizations devoted to the development of new standards of practice in dentistry, including the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, the International College of Acupuncture and Electro-Therapeutics, and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. I have been a frequent lecturer at the events organized by the Cancer Control Society and Academy of Neurology, as well as at numerous other symposia and conferences nationwide. I have also been actively involved in outreach programs and mission work in West and South Africa.
