  • Alexander Ash
    Principal Dentist

    Today, dentistry has expanded and is going through a golden era of technological advancement and growth. Everything from better dental materials to advancements in implants has allowed people to have healthier oral health. My focus is to make sure that all my patients are in the best shape both in gum and bone so that any work done on the teeth will be well supported.

    My goal is also to help patients feel in control of their own dental health by providing them with pertinent and current information regarding the care of their teeth. I have also made sure that the labs and materials we use are the best in the industry and the specialists who work in our office are comprised of some of the most competent and educated doctors.

    I have been fortunate enough to receive the credentials of:

    • Bachelor of Science in Psychobiology from UCLA
    • Doctorate at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, which holds the prestigious title of First Dental College in the world
    • Extern at The John Hopkins School of Medicine in Oral Pathology, and doing General Residency Training at New York-Presbyterian/Weill-Cornell Hospital
    • Research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
    • A second General Residency at the UCLA Sepulveda VA Hospital.
