Who we are and what we do...

Periodontists begin as general dentists who then attend a 3 year, university-based periodontal/implant residency to become dental specialists that treat the gums, jaw bones and place dental implants. They have 7 years of university/hospital based dental training to remove infections, place implants for missing teeth or improve the conditions for both teeth and implants. Most problems associated with the support of the teeth, gum and jaw bones are treated by periodontists. Often periodontists are required to remove, or extract teeth. Overall, periodontists create the foundation for healthy, esthetic teeth and implants.

Dr. Mintzer is board certified by the American Academy of Periodontology as a Diplomate in Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery. As the attending periodontist at USC, he taught periodontal residents surgery and treatment planning for 13 years. His office provides focused and comprehensive general and periodontal examinations, "cleanings" of teeth and implants, x-rays, implant and periodontal treatment.

Extremely caring service and attention. The pinnacle in hygienic standards. The staff and Dr. Mintzer are very friendly and accommodating.

The new normal is strange for sure but all at Doc Mintzers office are great. They are only seeing one patient at a time and are going to great lengths to ensure everyone stays well. It was one of the best experiences i have had in the dentist chair. Doc Mintzer did the cleaning himself. I usually white knuckle any dental procedure due to my tooth sensitivity but it was pain free and I'm pretty sure it was a deep clean. He is the best!
