Who we are and what we do...

Periodontists start as general dentists who attend periodontal/implant residencies to become dental specialists that treat the gums, jaw bones and place dental implants. They have 7 years of university based training to remove infections, place implants for missing teeth or improve the conditions for both teeth and implants. Most problems associated with the periphery, or supporting border 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. He taught surgery and treatment planning at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry for 13 years. His office provides focused and comprehensive general and periodontal examinations, "cleanings" of teeth and implants, x-rays, implant and periodontal treatment.

-Michael Bangs | Jun 06, 2017
Roy is an amazingly friendly and thorough dentist. I also know he is well educated and takes his work very seriously. How many times have you gotten a call after oral surgery from your dentist? Roy does this every evening to make sure he/she is okay and to remind him/her to follow the instructions. He also has a great staff. I would easily give him 10 stars, if I could.

Goleta, CA | Mar 04, 2017
I have had two surgeries with Dr. Mintzer. The first was a crown lengthening that involved 6 front teeth. The second was an implant. Dr. Mintzer is not only a very capable dental surgeon, he is a very nice person. He takes time to explain procedures and alternatives and answer all questions. His medical and office staff is excellent, and it is obvious that they are a cohesive team.
